Our Swimming Insurance policy options

Put simply, we offer three different policy options…

1. Travel Insurance

Our Sports Travel Insurance will cover you whilst swimming 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 already have a travel insurance policy in place with another provider such as your bank but it does not include cover for swimming, we can provide a bolt-on style of protection for your trip.

3. Sports Accident Insurance

If you need liability insurance or personal accident cover, our Sports Accident Insurance is available to take out on a single or multi-day term. All of our policies are underwritten by AXA XL and can be purchased online in minutes.
