What does Sports Travel Insurance cover?

Our Sports Travel insurance provides extensive coverage of a standard travel insurance policy but with the added benefit of being covered to participate in up to 500 sports.

You will be financially covered should you have an accident whilst taking part in your favourite sport. You will also benefit from being covered against the risk of trip cancellation, theft of your sports equipment and much more. 

If you already have a travel insurance policy in place with the likes of your bank but it does not cover you for taking part in your sport, we provide a bolt-on style of protection under our Activity TopUp policy. 

Our policy is underwritten by AXA XL, a leading insurer in the sports and leisure industry. Get an instant quote online by completing our short online quote form. If you need any assistance, our Sales team are available Monday to Friday, 9am – 5:30pm, on 01494 887909.

Cancellation Cover

A choice of between £1,000 and £5,000 worth of cover if you need to cancel a 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.

Activity and Race Entry Fees

Should an injury mean that you are unable to take part in an activity or event that you are travelling for, we can provide up to £500 worth of cover in order for you to recoup the costs.

Flight delays are frustrating and eat away at your valuable trip time. Our policy provides up to £300 worth of cover for when industrial action, adverse weather or mechanical breakdown causes a delay to your travel.
