What makes our policy different?

Many standard travel insurance policies will not cover Gaelic sports, including football, hurling, handball and rounders, 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.

Our Sports Travel Insurance in addition to the usual travel benefits, such as medical costs, travel delays, cancellations and more, you would also be covered for playing Gaelic sports. 

If you are taking part in the UK, our Sports Accident insurance will likely be better suited. The policy provides football injury insurance in the form of personal accident cover, plus income protection for those that need it.

Be a responsible participant, and get insurance before you head to the field!

Frequently Asked Questions

There is a player to player exclusion under the Personal Liability section of the cover which means that if you injure another player when playing within the normal rules of the sport, for example as a result of a tackle, you would not have any liability cover – i.e. you would not be covered for any claims made against you by the other player. You would be covered for your liability if, for example, you kicked a ball through a window, or it injured a member of the public.

Standard travel insurance policies do not always cover collision sports. Our Sports Travel Insurance is specifically designed to cover over 500 high risk activities such as bungee jumping, skateboarding, ski-acrobatics and many more.

No, unfortunately our policies cannot provide cover for professionals. A professional is any person who receives more than £5,000 income per calendar year from their participation in a sport or activity. Benefits received such as free or reduced-cost accommodation, entry fees or clothing are not considered to be income.

Also any person who has a contract of employment (paid or unpaid), a sports scholarship or where their full-time occupation is undertaking the sport / activity.

Yes, our Gaelic Sports Insurance can generally be taken out even if you have a medical condition. We can almost always offer cover at no extra cost, but occasionally our underwriters may apply special terms if you subsequently needed to make a claim relating to your condition.

You can purchase our Gaelic Sports Insurance online up until 74 years old. Above this age, you would need to call us on 01494 484800 and we will be able to refer your quote to our underwriters. Please note, our quotes are based on your age at the start date of cover.
