are sports and activities covered under worldwide policies?
most standard sports and activities will be covered by our brands as standard. however, if your trip-of-a-lifetime involves you trying out some new and exciting sports, such as bungee jumping or skydiving in Australia, sand duning in Dubai or shark diving off South Africa, then you’ll probably need an specialist extreme sports policy, or at the very least, a sports extension so that you are fully covered. but that’s pretty easy to arrange – just let us know what activities you plan on getting involved with during your trip during the quote process and we’ll make sure we match you with on of our brands that will meet your needs.
