Cycling Holiday & Travel Insurance – Do You Really Need It?

Chances are your bike will arrive safely, you will top up the cyclist tan lines and get plenty of summer miles under your wheels. You might even come home with something extra like an ‘Ironman’ tattoo and bragging rights for months/years to come. Travelling abroad with your bike, whether for a holiday, a cycle tour, a triathlon, a training camp or any other reason is a lot of fun and can create memories you’ll remember forever.


But what if something goes wrong?

Unfortunately, things don’t always go to plan and no matter how careful you are, accidents do happen. You could overcook a corner on a training camp, misjudge the jump off or get blown off by the winds of Kona when you’re down on the bars dreaming of glory on the Queen K Highway.
