Questions about sports travel insurance and cover for hazardous activities?

What kind of Sports travel insurance policy types do you offer?

We offer three types of policy. It all depends on your budget and the way you like to travel. The cheapest option is our Economy policy. Our Standard policy gives extra baggage, cancellation and medical cover and our Superior policy offers up to £10m of medical cover as well as gadget cover and lots of other benefits.

What if the sports I do aren't included in the price of my policy?

We cover over 150 sports and activities as standard, as well as hundreds more with our additional 'Activity Packs'. To add activity packs to your policy just tell us the sport you wish to participate in and we’ll calculate the premium for you.
