Action Sports Travel Insurance

Whilst many leisure sports and activities are covered under the standard terms and conditions of a travel insurance policy others are not as they are deemed to pose a higher risk. Some Insurers will not cover certain activities at all. It is important that if you wish to participate in an Action Sports activity such as paragliding, kite surfing (over land) or tandem sky diving, then it is important that you contact us on 0843 4590876 to ensure that you purchase the correct policy for your needs. There will be an additional premium payable to the insurer and limitations in respect of the cover provided. Please remember there is no cover when participating in any activity on a professional basis.

 

   

Our approach has always been to offer the traveller the choice when it comes to travel insurance. Following a simple quote stage where we determine your needs, the policy options are laid out on screen in such a way that you can easily see what is covered and more importantly whats not covered under each policy.

Customers who are interested in the most cost effective options have the ability to further reduce the policy prices by removing elements such as baggage and cancellation cover and increasing the excesses.

Comprehensive travel insurance for action sports covers the policyholder for insurable events that may occur before or during travel, such as trip cancellation/interruption, medical expenses for injury or illness, theft of valuables, baggage damage and more. The cost of travel insurance is based on the type of cover requested, the age of the insured, the destination of travel, the length of stay, type of activities covered and whether you have any pre-existing medical conditions. We have a wide range of available travel insurance policies available to suit all needs.

 


 

What about the EHIC, Isn't that enough?

The European Health Insurance Card or EHIC is designed to ensure that you will receive free or reduced cost emergency medical treatment in any of the EU member countries - plus Switzerland - and is available for those aged 16 and over free of charge.

It is important to remember that the EHIC is for emergency hospital visits only and will not entitle you to any other form of treatment. It will also not cover the cost of emergency repatriation to the UK if needed and will not pay for any of the other benefits associated with a travel insurance policy including baggage, cancellation, personal liability cover, etc. To find out more about the European Health Insurance Card, please click here.

The UK Government is suing some EU states for refusing to honour UK residents EHIC Cards. Travellers are forced to use cash points in Hospitals abroad to pay for emergency care upfront and told to reclaim from the NHS upon return
