Sports and activities covered with your World First policy

Fancy a game? It's no problem for World First travellers. We cover hundreds of sports and activities. Those listed in pack 1 are covered for free. For sports listed in packs 2-8 an additional premium is payable and can be added when buying your policy online or by phone. Backpacker and long stay policies feature packs 1-4; single trip and annual policies feature packs 1-8*.

Not sure or your sport isn't listed? Just give us a call on 0345 90 80 161 to chat about what kind of activity you are involved with. We'll be able to give you a quick decision - as well as peace of mind whilst you are away.

* Note that each activity pack covers all activities up to and including the level you have purchased. For example, activity pack 4 also covers all activities in packs 1, 2 and 3.
