    How it works

    We’ve been providing sports and travel insurance for over 25 years, so we understand the risks associated with participating in sport overseas. Many standard travel insurance will exclude more risky activities, but at Protectivity we can include cover for over 500 different activities ranging from the more sedate to the extreme sports.

    Our shark cage diving insurance combines protection for the more standard travel events such as flight delays, cancellation or lost and stolen baggage. It also provides cover for injuries suffered whilst taking part in the activity. Should you required emergency medical treatment or repatriation, the costs are covered.

    The sports we cover are separated into seven groups, depending on their level of risk. Take out a policy for shark cage diving, in our sports group six, and you’re protected for both that and any sport in group six or below as standard.
