What is Children's Sports Insurance?

SportsCover Direct specialises in personal accident insurance for young people. We are able to provide cover for most organised sports in the UK.

Accidents can happen at any level or frequency of sport and by taking out an insurance policy you ensure that if your child is involved in a sports related accident the most important issues can be taken care of. The cover can include Personal Liability, Personal Accident Compensation and Rehabilitation Fees.

1. Travel Insurance Bolt-On

Our Activity TopUp policy is best suited if you have a travel insurance policy with another provider, such as your bank, but it does not include cover for your chosen activity. We can provide a bolt-on style insurance to cover you in these one-off situations.

2. Travel Insurance

If you are travelling abroad to play in a sport, we offer a travel insurance policy that will cover medical expenses should you get injured whilst playing. It will also provide a range of other benefits including trip cancellation cover and equipment protection.

3. Sports Accident Insurance

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