WHY DO I NEED MOUNTAIN BIKING INSURANCE
When travelling abroad, it is important to know you are covered. However, without adequate mountain bike insurance in place you could be unprotected.
With our Sports Travel Insurance in place, you are covered for standard travel insurance as well as cover for your mountain biking with the below benefits;
• Cover for your equipment or that which is hired to you during your trip in case of damage, delayed, lost or stolen up to £5,600.

• As with standard travel insurance you are also covered if you have to cancel or cut short a holiday abroad, or if your flight’s delayed or your baggage fails to arrive at your destination, your policy could repay the costs.
• Personal liability covering your legal liability resulting from accidents causing death, bodily injury or property damage to a third party.
• Discounts for couples, families and group policies.
Mountain Biking Insurance – what are the risks?
Every year we insure thousands of people that go mountain biking all around the world. Mountain biking is a high speed, high impact sport and sometimes accidents happen, so it’s important to ensure that you have appropriate insurance policy in place. We rate mountain biking on cycle paths differently in our sports groups to mountain biking cross country or on trails, downhill or competitive mountain biking. Please check our full list of sports activities here. If you wish to learn more how to protect yourself and avoid most common mountain biking injuries, please visit our blog.
Does standard travel insurance cover Mountain Biking?
Mountain biking would be classed as adventurous activity by most travel insurers. Standard travel insurance policies do not normally pay out for accidents during so-called adventure sports unless additional cover is taken out. So, if you choose a specialist travel insurance policy read the small print to make sure mountain biking is covered by it.
Can I take out mountain biking travel insurance if I have a medical condition?
Yes, medical conditions do not affect the premium. 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.
Is there a maximum age restriction with your mountain bike insurance?
You can purchase our mountain biking 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.
