Activities and Sports Extensions

Unlike other policies we cover many sports and activities as standard; no additional premium is required for activities listed in Activity Pack 1.  We have categorised the activities that are not covered as standard into seven further bands. If you do not see your chosen activity, do not worry, we may cover it, but you must contact us so we can discuss the activity and what, if any, additional premium is necessary.  

Scroll down and use the search facility below, to find which Activity Pack relates to your requirements.

The activities are covered on the basis that your chosen activity is not the sole purpose of your trip with the exception of winter sports* whereby you can opt to have specific winter sporting activities included, which will be covered for the entire duration of your trip. All of the activities are covered on a non-professional and non-competitive basis, unless otherwise stated. Any claims which arise whilst undertaking any of these activities for any purpose other than leisure (examples of non-leisure purposes include professional / semi-professional / paid / sponsored racing, timed events – unless otherwise specified, professional, display events, photo shoots, etc...) will not be covered under this policy. Safety guidelines provided from a professional event company or organiser must be followed. Failure to do so will invalidate a claim.  If you are unsure please do not hesitate to contact us and we can discuss your individual requirements. We consider ‘professional or competitive’ to be activities/sports where you are either paid for participating in, receive any element of sponsorship, fees or prize money in excess of £200.  

Please note those activities marked in bold do not have Personal Liability cover or Accidental Death and Disability cover.
