Does my insurance cover mountain rescue?

CSP insurance policies cover the cost of removal to medical facilities by ambulance where this is medically necessary. There is no specific requirement for this to be a road transfer so the insurance would cover other forms of rescue where it is reasonable to conclude that these are the equivalent of an ambulance and are medically necessary. It is not possible to give any more specific guidance as every case is treated on its merits. In principle however only costs that are unavoidable will be covered and this would include air transport if the only reasonable course.
