Taking part in sports and activities when you’re on holiday is all part of the fun. Maybe you’re planning a round of golf in the sun or even scuba diving in the Great Barrier Reef. But you’ll want to make sure your plans are covered by your travel insurance, should something unexpected happen. While we can’t promise nothing will go wrong while you’re on your travels, what we can do is reassure you that you’ll have our support if it does.

Having confidence in your travel insurance is important. If disaster strikes on holiday, we’ll always aim to put it right.

It's not just travel insurance, it's travel reassurance!

Travel insurance that’s with you all the way - so you’ll be ready to roll, wherever your holiday takes you.

That’s Travel Reassurance!

Why personalised travel insurance is important

After just a couple days on holiday, Carol(1) and her husband received the news that their daughter was admitted to hospital back home.

Having to cut their holiday short and fly back home to be with their daughter, new flights were needed and the cost of their holiday was put to waste.

Carol had covered their holiday with personalised travel insurance, meaning we were by their side when they needed us the most.

With our help, Carol could focus on her daughter, knowing we would put things right.

The unexpected can happen to anyone on holiday, and like Carol, you’ll want that reassurance and support if disaster strikes.

Do I need to have had both my Covid jabs to be covered?

As long as you’ve had the vaccines you’ve been offered for Covid-19, you should be covered. If you haven’t been offered both doses yet or you’re medically exempt then you can also be covered.

If you’ve refused any doses of the vaccine or haven’t been able to have a dose you’ve been offered, you won’t be covered.

Am I covered for sports with my travel insurance?

You’ll be covered for most sports and activities on your travel insurance policy without having to tell us. Just make sure you’re not taking part on a competitive basis, and you’ll be good to go!

Sports and activities are all part of the holiday fun and you deserve to enjoy them with peace of mind.
With over 80 activities included on all our travel insurance policies, including golfing, hiking and tennis, you can enjoy your holiday adventures with peace of mind.

Hitting the slopes? Make sure you’re covered by adding Winter Sports additional cover, to feel protected if disaster strikes in the snow.

Aerobics Badminton Cricket

Do I need to tell you about my pre-existing health conditions?

It’s really important you let us know about your health, so we can personalise your cover to your needs. By covering your health conditions with your travel insurance, you’ll be covered to take part in the sports and activities you enjoy while on holiday. Even when living with a health condition.

Telling us about your health conditions is really simple – you can either do this online or over the phone.

If you have any worries about the questions we’ll ask or the cover we can offer you, just give our friendly team a call. We’ll be happy to answer any queries you have and talk you through the medical questions step by step. Relax, we’ll never rush you.

Can I get golf travel insurance?

Golf is covered as standard with travel insurance, meaning you’re protected for personal liability and medical emergencies when playing your favourite sport on holiday.

With our optional golf travel insurance add-on, available on Classic and Deluxe policies, you’ll be covered for your golfing equipment (hire or your own). If you get a hole-in-one, our optional golf add-on will cover you for a round of drinks at the bar!
