Our Athletics Insurance policy options

Put simply, we offer three different policy options…

1. Travel Insurance

We provide a Sports Travel Insurance policy for those requiring cover for taking part in athletics whilst abroad, whether that be for leisure or competition. We include cover for medical and repatriation costs, trip cancellation, plus more.

2. Travel Insurance Bolt-On

If you have an existing travel insurance policy in place with another provider such as your bank but it does not include cover for taking part in athletics, we can provide a bolt-on style of protection for your trip under our Activity Top-Up policy.

3. Sports Accident Insurance

We also provide a Sports Accident Insurance policy which is designed to protect those taking part in athletics in the UK and need personal accident, personal liability or income protection. You can get an instant quote and buy any of our products online.
