triathlon travel insurance

Triathlon travel insurance is a must have if you training or racing abroad. 

While some travel insurers will allow you to ride you bike on holiday, many will exclude cover if you are racing or if cycling is the primary purpose of your trip. 

Our Triathlon Travel Insurance is primarily there to cover you should you have an accident while training or racing abroad and need medical assistance or repatriation. 

It also includes all the travel insurance cover you would expect from a high street insurer.

Emergency Medical Expenses

Cover for medical mishaps while riding is absolutely crucial, and is the primary feature of our triathlon travel insurance. It is also often missing from standard travel insurance policies if you are injured while cycling. We cover the costs of emergency medical care up to £10 million.


If you injure yourself training or racing abroad, our triathlon travel insurance will cover the costs of repatriating you back to the UK.​

Cover for Training and Racing

Some travel insurance policies include limited cover for cycling, but check the small print, there are usually serious exclusions particularly for racing or training. We can cover you for a family cycling holiday, training camp, or race.

Short Term or Annual Policies

If you damage somebody's property or injure another person while on your bike, you could find yourself liable for damages. We include £2 million public liability cover while cycling abroad.​

Cancellation & Curtailment

We know what a big investment triathlon can be which is why we include up to £5,000 to cover your travel and accommodation costs if you have to cancel your trip due to something unforeseen such as illness or injury.

Baggage, Personal Belongings, Money & Documents

We include up to £150 cover up to for lost or delayed baggage, £300 for holiday money, and £500 for valuables.
