With three different levels of cover to choose from our cycling travel insurance is perfect for yourself, your family or a group of fellow bike enthusiasts.
If you already have standard travel insurance, there is a good chance that cycling, or at least certain forms of it, including downhill mountain biking or organised events and tours, will be excluded.

The policy comes with a range of benefits such as £10 million worth of medical expenses and repatriation cover, in case you suffer an accident on your bike, £2 million worth of Personal Liability to protect you if you injure someone else, as well as search and rescue cover.

Road cycling – the facts
Road cycling is widely considered the most dangerous form of cycling due to the lack of protection in crashes with motor vehicles and the vulnerability to weather conditions. Safety equipment such as cycling helmets, designed to lessen the damage of impact collisions, is important, as well as investing in cycling insurance for protection against potential injury. Cycling can be found within our list of covered sports, and includes cycling insurance for both competitive and non-competitive events and competitions.
As well as being good for you, riding a bike is also good for the environment and an extremely efficient and effective mode of transportation. It’s no wonder millions of people take part in cycling every year as a recreational past time or competitively, with events such as the L’Étape du Tour particularly popular. So don’t forget, if your competing in a cycling event abroad you most likely require cycling travel insurance.

Outstanding service! The support provided when my husband had an accident in France could not be faulted.
100% confidence in this company. I unfortunately had to make a claim last year when my golf clubs were stolen. The claims process was straightforward and well supported by SportsCover Direct.
First class! Simple, efficient and professional. The whole process was extremely simple from beginning to end.
I have used SportsCover Direct several times now for sports and summer sun insurance. They are first class at covering pre-existing medical conditions.
