In much the same way as you buy travel insurance for winter sports, we have made travel insurance for cycling simple and easy to understand. Buying travel insurance for cycling and triathlon has always been needlessly complicated, so our aim has been to make the cover we offer people cycling abroad absolutely clear.

Our Cycling Travel Insurance has been designed specifically for cyclists riding, training, and racing abroad.


Following our detailed customer research, we realised many people were unaware that travel insurance provided by their work or bank accounts excluded claims if they came off their bike whilst on a cycling-specific holiday. Some travel insurers will cover cycling if it’s an incidental part of your holiday, i.e. you hired a bike for a day with your family, but not if the trip’s primary purpose is cycling. So if you were racing an Ironman in Austria, taking on the trails in Morzine, or simply training with club mates in the Pyrenees, your average travel insurance is likely inadequate. Similarly, a Global Health Insurance Card, or GHIC, is not designed to replace travel insurance and shouldn’t be relied on while riding abroad.

No matter where you are or what type of cycling you enjoy, if you have Cycle Travel Insurance with Yellow Jersey, you can relax and ride with complete confidence that you’re covered for medical mishaps.
