What does Extreme Sports Travel Insurance cover?
Our Extreme Sports Insurance works just like any other travel insurance, meaning that it will protect you should you have an accident or illness abroad, lose your luggage or experience delays. It can even reimburse the cost of your lost, stolen or damaged sports equipment. The main benefits include:
• Emergency Medical Expenses & Repatriation

• Personal Accident cover
• Personal Liability
• Delayed, lost or stolen baggage

How is Extreme Sports Travel Insurance different?
Our Extreme Sports Travel Insurance differs from standard travel policies as it will also protect you whilst participating in a large range of extreme sports both abroad and in the UK. This includes competitions and training camps, which in most cases would not be covered under many other basic travel insurance policies. What’s more, we provide cover for over 500 sports and activities and we split them into seven sports groups. If for instance your extreme sport is in our sports group 4, this means you would also be covered for all sports in the same group and any lower groups. Please check our full list of sports activities here.
What extreme sports equipment is covered?
You can include up to £5,600 worth of equipment cover onto your policy. This add-on not only protects your extreme sports equipment but also any equipment you hire during your trip. It also covers your gear in transit to and from your destination.
If your equipment is lost, stolen or damaged while on your extreme sports holiday, you could claim back the costs associated with repairing or replacing it.
Does standard travel insurance cover extreme sports?
Standard travel insurance policies do not always cover extreme sports. Our Sports Travel Insurance is specifically designed to cover over 500 high risk activities such as paragliding, skateboarding, ski-acrobatics and many more.
Can I take out extreme sports travel insurance if I have a medical condition?
Yes, extreme sports travel insurance can be taken out even if you have a medical condition. You will need to declare any medical conditions, injuries or treatment within the last two years, and this is then referred to the underwriters who will assess any special terms.
