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.
If you are planning a triathlon holiday, you need to make sure you have sufficient travel insurance.
Cover for medical mishaps while riding is absolutely crucial and is the primary feature of our cycling travel insurance. It is also frequently missing from standard travel insurance policies. We cover the costs of emergency medical care from £2 million to £10 million.
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 during events such as Ironman Triathlon.
If you damage somebody’s property or injure another road user while cycling, you could find yourself liable for damages. Our cycle liability insurance includes £2 million public liability cover while cycling abroad.
Active people rarely restrict themselves to a single sport, and we know a lot of our customers swap their bicycles for skis in the winter. To save you buying a second specialist travel policy, you can add additional winter sports cover.
Do you need competition cover?
Cyclists taking part in races, tours, triathlons and charity events will need to consider choosing a policy with competition cover. This means that if you have a crash during the competition or are injured, you will be insured for liability and medical costs. This is excluded from most triathlon travel insurance policies, but it’s available with us. We even offer you cover for cancelled competitions, so you aren’t left out of pocket for expensive race fees.
How long do you require cover for?
The first thing to consider is how long you will need your triathlon travel insurance policy to cover you for. If you go on multiple cycling trips a year or participate in an annual race abroad, you can save money by choosing an insurance provider that covers multiple trips in one annual policy. As well as offering better value for money, there are a number of other reasons why a multi-trip policy makes sense.
