Extreme Sports Travel Insurance for action-packed adventures

If you're constantly seeking adventures and plan on taking part in some seriously adrenaline-fuelled sports on holiday, you might be interested in ensuring you're covered with extreme sports travel insurance.

We cover sports like zip-lining and water skiing, to more extreme winter sports like snowboarding to really get the blood pumping. Whatever the activity, it is extreme-ly (see what we did there) important to secure yourself the right cover for you and your kit which is suitable for high-risk sports and to protect you in the case of an emergency.

Single or annual policy?

If you've only planned one holiday this year, then our single trip travel insurance policy provides great cover for up to 365 days.

Or, if you tend to travel frequently, you may wish to consider our annual travel insurance; you only have to take out one policy and can be a cost-effective measure, saving you from taking out several individual policies over the course of the year. If you think you'll be hitting the slopes several times this year, you'll be pleased to know it offers the exact same level of cover as a single policy, but for an unlimited amount of trips across 12 months. Just make sure that each trip does not exceed the maximum number of days specified by your cover level:

  • 22 consecutive days for Bronze
  • 31 days for Silver
  • 45 days for Gold

Extra activity cover

We've rustled up some nifty additional cover options so you can add extra sports cover to your policy. Now we can extend your cover to include hobbies like winter sports and we may also be able to increase your cover levels. If you're planning a trip to Iceland, you should have a go at glacier walking — it's a great way of seeing the rugged, natural beauty of the country. Check out our travel guide our team made of their experience:


Now you can get a little more adventurous and tie the knot abroad! Our gold and platinum level policies come free with wedding travel insurance, including cover for wedding rings and gifts, and Platinum comes with gadget cover.
