Our Archaeological Digging Travel Insurance policy options

Put simply, we offer three different policy options…

1. Travel Insurance

Our worldwide Sport Travel Insurance can cover you during archaeological digging abroad for leisure or competition, and includes cover for medical and repatriation costs, trip cancellation and curtailment, and more.

2. Travel Insurance Bolt-On

If you have a travel insurance policy with another provider, such as your bank, but it does not include cover for archaeological digging, we can provide a bolt-on style of protection under our Activity TopUp policy.

3. Sports Accident Insurance

Our Sports Accident Insurance is designed to protect you for archaeological digging in the UK. Our policy provides a range of benefits including cover for serious injury, and if selected, will include income protection.
