If the plan for your next holiday includes taking part in a sport, you’ve come to the right place. We have been providing tailored Sports Travel Insurance policies for over 25 years and over that time protected more than 200,000 sports enthusiasts.
Our single trip or annual multi-trip Sports Travel Insurance offers protection for over 500 sports and leisure activities, including cover for extreme and adventure sports, for trips in the UK or worldwide. Our policy is just like any other travel insurance, meaning we’ll cover you should you have an accident abroad, lose your luggage or experience delays.
However, where our Sports Travel Insurance differs from most basic travel policies is the way it will also protect you whilst you are doing your sport, including competitions and training camps. It will even reimburse the cost of your lost, stolen or damaged sports equipment. So, as long as you are not a professional* sportsperson, we’ll have you covered under our Sports Travel policy.
*We would define a professional as someone earning more than £5,000 per year from their sport, doing their sport as a full-time occupation (paid or unpaid) or on a sports scholarship.
Value for money
Keep your premium to an absolute minimum. Select the sport(s) that you’ll be doing on your trip, the zone or country where you will be doing this, and the dates that you will leave and return to your country of residence. We cover most adventure sports and activities. As an added benefit, we’ll automatically cover you for every sport in the same sports groups as those chosen, plus all other sports and activities that appear in lower sports groups.
Unless we have labelled a sport, adventure sport or activity as “non-competitive” or “excluding competition” then you will be covered under our Sports Travel Insurance to compete abroad. Where a sport is labelled with “non competitive” or “excluding competition” you will often find another option which says “competitive” or “including competition”.
What Our Customers Say
Fantastic company, wouldn’t go anywhere else! Great customer service and competitive pricing – 5 stars from me!
Outstanding service! The support provided when my husband had an accident in France could not be faulted.
100% confidence in this company. I unfortunately had to make a claim last year when my golf clubs were stolen. The claims process was straightforward and well supported by SportsCover Direct.
First class! Simple, efficient and professional. The whole process was extremely simple from beginning to end.
I have used SportsCover Direct several times now for sports and summer sun insurance. They are first class at covering pre-existing medical conditions.
