Our Basketball Insurance policy options

Put simply, we offer three different policy options…

1. Travel Insurance

Our Sports Travel Insurance will cover you whilst playing basketball abroad for leisure or competition, and includes cover for medical and repatriation costs, trip cancellation and curtailment, 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 basketball, we can provide a bolt-on style of protection for your trip.

3. Sports Accident Insurance

Our Sports Accident Insurance is designed to protect you whilst playing basketball in the UK, whether that be for leisure or competition. The policy provides a range of benefits including personal liability and income protection.

What is Basketball Insurance?

Many standard travel insurance policies will not cover basketball as standard and even if they do, there will likely be exclusions for taking part in competitions, making a specialist policy necessary in these cases.

Under our Sports Travel Insurance policy in addition to the usual travel benefits (such as medical costs, flight delays, cancellations etc.) you would be also covered for participating in your declared sport.

If you are playing basketball within the UK, our Sports Accident Insurance would be more suitable suitable, offering various benefits including personal accident, income protection and personal liability insurance.

All you need to do is get a quote, purchase your policy and enjoy your game!

Why do you need Basketball Insurance?

Despite the fact that basketball is played at a high pace and is considered a contact sport, serious injuries are far less common than in collision sports.

Common injuries associated with basketball can include sprains and ligament tears. Regular play can result in Achilles tendinitis due to the eccentric forces through the tendon from jumping and landing.

Although basketball is considered low risk it’s still recommended that adequate insurance is taken out for protection against injuries and associated treatment costs.
