Back injury delays two summits

A Ripcord Rescue Travel Insurance client and mountaineer was training for two upcoming summit attempts when he hurt his lower back. He felt pain radiating down his leg and was unable to exercise without extreme discomfort.

He visited his doctor who advised him against any exertion and told him to cancel his two upcoming climbs. That meant forfeiting $2,068 in non-refundable deposits. As a comprehensive travel insurance policyholder with Ripcord he submitted a claim, and Ripcord reimbursed him in full.
