Surfing travel insurance - World First

Surfing travel insurance for surfing holidays worldwide

If ever there was an activity that best encapsulates all that is wonderful about travel, surfing is it. The ultimate adrenaline sport offers freedom, exploration and adventure all in one. And if anyone should know it's us! Martin Rothwell, our MD, and his brother Tristan, our social media expert, grew up surfing in Cornwall.

So, whether you need surfing travel insurance for a boat trip to the Maldives or a camping trip to the west coast of France, don't go without us! Surfing at an amateur level is included in all our policies, including long stay policies and annual multi trip policies. It means that you'll be able to pack your board whenever you take off for foreign shores.

It's easy to get cover too. You can buy it online or, if you prefer, you can call our customer services team on 0345 90 80 161. Either way, you'll still benefit from the same unbeatable water sports premiums.

"Excellent customer service!"

"For some strange reason, I can't get excited about insurance, but I have to say the excellent service given by your customer services rep (Shushanah) made a usually awful task bearable. All the details were made clear and simple and the whole process was conducted very professionally - even the medical exceptions part, which is usually a pain."

A choice of policies to let you drop in with confidence

In or out of the water we want you to feel secure when you travel. That's why we offer a range of policies to suit the way you travel. With our Superior policy you'll get cover for up to £10 million worth of medical expenses and up to £2 million in personal liability as well as up to £50,000 in legal expenses. Our surfing travel insurance will cover you for snorkelling, scuba diving up to 30 metres, inshore sailing, whale watching and windsurfing too, so if it's on offer when you get there, you'll be free to indulge your passion for the ocean without a care in the world.

Well also cover you for loss of baggage and loss of passport, cash and credit cards on all our policies, as well as abandonment and missed departure. We can also cover thousands of pre-existing medical conditions too – so there's no reason not to travel in the first place. And, as with all our policies, you get access to our 24/7 medical assistance the moment you need help.

And if you need to make a claim? We'll be with you every step of the way.
