AAC Rescue Benefit


AAC members in good standing are automatically enrolled in:

  • Up to $7,500 of Global Rescue Trailhead Rescue Services (available worldwide)
  • Up to $5,000 of Domestic Rescue Benefits (available in the U.S. only)
  • Additional Global Rescue benefits can be purchased by AAC members at a 5% discount

Accidents happen. As backcountry users, it is our responsibility to be prepared and also to have a backup plan. AAC membership automatically enrolls you for rescue coverage in case things go wrong climbing, hiking, backcountry skiing, mountain biking, and more—any human-powered, land-based activity beyond the trailhead is covered. Simply joining the AAC helps make this $12,500 lifeline possible for you and your fellow members.

*Trailhead Rescue and Domestic Rescue Benefit are only available to active members. Both benefits expire the date one’s membership lapses, and rescue costs will not be covered.
