Mountain insurance

Liptov is a mountain destination and we always recommend visitors and tourists not to forget about insurance to the mountains.

According to the valid law of Slovak Republic about Mountain Rescue Service (HZS), the injured person located in a mountain area is obliged to pay HZS costs associated with rescue activities or searches related to it (this obligation does not apply to underage persons – children and persons who do not have legal capacity).

To cover the risks associated with the possible costs caused by the HZS intervention, the visitor takes out commercial insurance called “mountain travel insurance”. Mountain insurance covers the technical part of the intervention, mainly activities related to the search, rescue, transport of the injured, or transport of the remains of a person who died in the mountains.
