Our Rowing Boat Insurance policy options

Put simply, we offer three different policy options…

1. Travel Insurance

Our Sports Travel Insurance will cover you whilst rowing abroad for leisure or competition, and includes cover for medical and repatriation costs, trip cancellation and curtailment, plus more.

2. Travel Insurance Bolt-On

If you have an existing travel insurance policy in place with another provider such as your bank but it does not include cover for rowing, we can provide a bolt-on style of protection for your trip.

3. Sports Accident Insurance

Our Sports Accident Insurance is designed to protect you whilst rowing in the UK, whether that be for leisure or competition. The policy provides a range of benefits including personal liability and income protection.

500+ Sports Covered

What makes our policy different?

Rowing is one of the most popular recreational sports and many travel insurance providers are likely to cover it. Unfortunately, when they do, there are often exclusions for taking part in competitions and events, making a specialist policy necessary in these cases.

At SporstCover Direct, we cover rowing, as well as 500 other sports. If you are travelling overseas, our Sports Travel Insurance not only includes protection against the usual travel mishaps such as cancellations and delays, but also includes cover if you were to be injured whilst you were rowing, need medical assistance or repatriation.

When rowing in the UK, our Sports Accident Insurance is a better option, as it will safeguard you against broken bones, physiotherapy fees, personal liability and more.

With all those benefits, why take the risk and go rowing without arranging a policy in place?

What does our policy cover?

Despite rowing being a low-impact sport and considered safe by most insurers, it still has some risk factors, therefore certain conditions and limitations apply. For instance, we won’t be able to provide insurance for rowing more than 12 miles from shore. Here are the key benefits of our travel insurance policy:

  • Emergency Medical Expenses & Repatriation
  • Cancellation & Curtailment
  • Personal Accident
  • Delayed, lost or stolen baggage
  • Lost or damaged Sports Equipment
  • Travel Delay, Abandonment and Missed Departure

 

Frequently Asked Questions
