Quality cover for a variety of adventure sports and activities

Mountain biking in Europe? Snorkelling in the Mediterranean? Skydiving in New Zealand? If you’re going on a sporting trip, we’ve got you covered.

Whether you’re planning a high-impact holiday (hey, sunbathing isn’t for everyone), or just fancy an afternoon of adventure, you can have peace of mind with our sports travel insurance – which is exactly what you need if you’re jumping from a plane!

Since it’s included with all of our policies, you don’t need to fork out extra for a spot of adventure. Please note that some activities are only covered under our Gold and Diamond plans; check that you’re properly covered by reading through our travel insurance guide before choosing which plan is right for you.

What do we cover?

Every policy we offer – from our cheap Economy plan right up our best travel insurance policy, the Diamond plan – covers the necessities. If anything should happen whilst you’re away, we’ll pay for your overseas medical and dental costs. We’ll also be there to cover any unforeseen expenses incurred during your journey, or once you’ve arrived.

We offer 24/7 emergency assistance too, meaning you can speak directly to one of our team – day or night – wherever you are in the world.

Plus, we always offer a 14-day cooling off period, in case you need to cancel your policy for any reason. Provided that you haven’t made a claim or started your trip in that time, we’ll give you a full refund.

Which sports activities are covered?

From once in a lifetime experiences to low-impact (but equally exciting) leisure activities, our policies cover a range of popular adventure sports for all kinds of thrill-seekers.

All of our policies handle most casual sporting activities and organised resort activities. Competing abroad? Remember: our policies will not cover you if you’re participating in a professional capacity.

Below are some examples of what’s covered in our policies. Exclusions do apply in some cases, so please see our travel insurance guide for a full break down of which activities are covered on each of our plans.
