extreme sports travel insurance

extreme sports travel insurance policies available through albert & eddie are perfect for those who love nothing more than action-packed holidays, filled with lots of sporting and adrenaline-fuelled adventures.

policies that include extreme sports cover are often designed for trips that involve sports and activities that aren’t typically covered under your standard travel insurance. for example, activities such as body boarding or surfing may be covered under a standard policy, but more daring sports such as black water rafting or paragliding would need an extreme sports extension due to their riskier nature. simply let us know the types of sports you fancy participating in on your next trip and we’ll show you which of the extreme sports travel insurance panellists can offer you cover.

frequently asked questions

why do I need travel insurance that covers extreme sports?

if you’re going to be taking part in any extreme sports or activities while you are away, then you’ll need to make sure that you have suitable travel insurance in place. extreme sporting holidays are considered to be much riskier than your typical beach holiday, and so more tailored and unique cover is needed to protect you for the activities that you’ll be doing – not to mention the risks involved. having the right cover for the sport or activity that you plan on getting involved in will take the weight off your shoulders and be one less thing for you to worry about.

can I get extreme sports travel insurance through albert & eddie to cover my group?

yes, you can get extreme sports travel insurance cover if you’re travelling with a group. in fact, we encourage it!

if you’re planning a thrill-seeking adventure with your friends, or even to compete abroad as part of a club, then a group travel insurance policy is definitely the best way to make sure that everyone has the most suitable cover, all under the same policy. having your whole travelling party on the same policy can also come in really handy if you later need to make a claim.

what do you consider to be an extreme sport?

we consider an extreme sport to be any sport or activity where there is a higher amount of risk or the potential for injury due to the speed, height, physical effort and specialist equipment involved. some extreme sports will be considered to be ‘very’ high risk, and so they may often be excluded from standard extreme sports policies. that being said, even with sports that are listed as excluded, some of the extreme sports specialists on albert & eddie will consider providing one-off, unique cover. so, it’s always worth contacting our team to discuss the activity you fancy getting involved in and letting us chat to our brands to see what they can do.
