Specialist Extreme Sports Insurance

‘Extreme Sports’ refers collectively to high adrenaline or dangerous sports. We provide extreme sports insurance for a number of sports considered to be of above-average and high risk, such as paragliding, skydiving and mountaineering.

If you are skydiving, bungee jumping or taking part in another extreme sport at home our Sports Accident Insurance can provide protection against broken bones, lost income and physiotherapy costs. 

But if you heading overseas, our Sports Travel Insurance is for you. Acting like a normal travel cover, with benefits such as flight delays, cancellation and lost baggage, it also includes cover for your sport – some of which are excluded by standard policies.

To get a quick quote, just select the sports you are doing, where you are going and when, and we’ll present you with an instant price and the option to take out cover straight away.

    What's included in your Sports Travel Insurance policy?

    Our policies for people taking part in extreme sports abroad include the following benefits as standard:

    Cancellation Cover

    Up to £5,000 worth of cover if you need to cancel a climbing trip due to illness or injury prior to travelling or if you have to curtail a trip prior to your scheduled return date for unexpected circumstances.

    Sports Equipment Cover

    From helmets to bungee ropes, to harnesses and skateboard, it’s likely you’ll be using some form of equipment on your trip. We can cover up to £5,6000 worth of items against loss, damage and theft.

    Emergency Medical Expenses

    Hospital and medical bills abroad can soon rack up. That’s why with our extreme sports cover in place you can rest assured that you have £10 million worth of cover for emergency treatment and repatriation.

    Activity and Race Entry Fees

    Should an injury mean that you are unable to take part in a booked event, tour or race, we can provide up to £500 worth of cover in order for you to recoup the costs you cannot get back by other means.

    Travel Delay Cover

    Flight delays are frustrating and can take up valuable sports time. We provide up to £300 worth of cover if industrial action, adverse weather or mechanical breakdown causes a delay to your travel.

    Scheduled Airline Failure

    If the airline you are booked to fly with goes into administration or suffers financial difficulties resulting in the cancellation of your flight, you’re covered for the costs associated with finding another route home.
