Our Sports Travel Insurance policy options

Put simply, we offer two different policy options…

1. Sports Travel Insurance

Our Sports Travel Insurance can cover you for taking part in over 500 sports whilst abroad, whether that be for leisure or competition. The policy includes cover for medical and repatriation costs, trip cancellation and curtailment, and much more.

2. Sports Travel Insurance Bolt-On

If you have a travel insurance policy with another provider, such as your bank, but it does not include cover for your sports or activity, we can provide a bolt-on style of protection under our Activity TopUp policy.

What does Sports holiday Insurance cover?

Travel insurance with sports cover differs from most basic travel policies as it will also protect you whilst participating in a large range of sports abroad. This includes extreme sports, competitions and training camps, which in most cases would not be covered under many other standard travel insurance policies.

It works just like any other travel insurance, meaning that it will protect you should you have an accident or illness abroad, lose your luggage or experience delays. It will even reimburse the cost of your lost, stolen or damaged sports equipment. 

People running in an event

Will I be covered during races and events?

Yes, our policy will cover you for participating in competitions, races and events unless otherwise stated.

We will cover your medical costs should you get injured whilst taking part in the event, race or competition. If you choose to take out our Sports Travel Insurance policy, you will also be covered against the loss of pre-paid race entry fees following an accident, injury or illness that prevents you from starting the race, event or competition.

Frequently Asked Questions

If you fall ill with COVID-19 during your trip and require emergency medical expenses care and/or repatriation to the UK, this would be covered under the policy, as long as the FCDO are not advising against all but essential travel, or against all travel to the country or area which you are visiting.

We will also cover you if you have to cancel or curtail your trip due to falling ill with COVID-19 due to you being too ill to travel, or if travelling meant that you would be contravening airline restrictions, or would be breaching entry restrictions in the country to which you were planning to travel.

You would also be covered under the Activity and Race Entry Fees section of the cover if you are unable to participate in an activity that has been paid for in advance due to contracting COVID-19.

You can purchase our Sports Travel 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.

Our highly experienced claims team can be contacted Mon – Fri, 9am – 5pm. Visit our Claims page to find out more information about how to make a claim.

No, we only insure amateurs or semi-professionals. We 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. If in doubt, please email or call us to discuss.

Yes, we provide cover for your sports equipment. 

We’ll cover your sports equipment or that which is hired to you during your trip. We’ll pay for:

  • The cost of hiring replacement equipment; or
  • The intrinsic value of the lost or damaged sports equipment; or
  • The cost of repair of your sports equipment

It is important because if you have an accident aboard and need medical assistance, you could be forced to pay a lot of money to receive treatment or be repatriated back to the UK. A comprehensive sports travel insurance policy will cover these costs up to the policy limit. 

You may also experience flight delays or cancellation of your trip which results in costing you money. These too will be covered under our Sports Travel Insurance policy.
