Specialist Ice Climbing Insurance

Ironman triathlon takes endurance sport to a whole new level. A 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike ride and 26.2 mile run combine to make it one of the toughest races in the world.

Competing in events such as these aren’t easy, and the strains you put on your body mean that accidents and injuries can easily occur.

We can cover you for those unfortunate incidents at home or abroad. Our Sports Travel Insurance policy covers all the usual travel aspects as well as protecting you against injuries suffered during a race.

However, if you are looking for cover for one day or on an annual basis for events in the UK, take a look at our Sports Accident Insurance.

    What's included in your Sports Travel Insurance policy?

    Our policies for people heading overseas for ironman triathlon events include the following benefits as standard:

    Cancellation Cover

    If you are unable to go on your pre-booked triathlon holiday due to an injury or illness to you or a close relative, you could be eligible to claim up to £5,000 for the irretrievable costs from booking your trip.

    Sports Equipment Cover

    Whether you are taking your bike abroad or not, it’s likely you will be bringing specific sporting items away with you. We can provide up to £5,600 cover against loss, damage and theft for these items.

    Emergency Medical Expenses

    Injuries sustained in ironman events are more common than you may think. Throw in the fact that treatment abroad can also be very expensive, you’ll be glad of our £10 million emergency medical fees cover.

    Activity and Race Entry Fees

    If you suffer an injury prior to your race of choice which means you are unable to take part, your policy will cover you for some of the race entry fees that you may be unable to get back by other means.

    Travel Delay Cover

    Flight delays can take a big chunk out of your preparation time ahead of a big event. On our policy we provide cover for the time you are left on the ground due to industrial action, mechanical failure or adverse weather.

    Scheduled Airline Failure

    With airlines finding themselves in financial difficulties on a more frequent basis, it’s important to have protection if your carrier was to go bust. You are covered for the cost of rearranging your flight if this was to happen.

    I was really pleased with how my claim was settled. It gave me great confidence that Protectivity covers me when the worst happens.
