Most UK travellers know they need to get specialist winter sports cover if they are skiing or snowboarding on holiday. Downhill sports come with big risks compared to a family beach holiday, and the areas where these sports are popular rarely have public hospitals.
Mountain biking holidays are no different. We’re travelling to resorts in the Alps where there are no public hospitals, and we’re participating in sports where there is a reasonable chance of injury. This is why mountain biking is excluded from almost all travel insurance policies. And while downhill mountain biking in the Alps is probably the extreme end of the spectrum, even some gentle cross-country mountain biking with the family is likely excluded from your usual travel insurance policy.
We’ve made travel insurance for cycling (including mountain biking) simple. Whether you’re planning a few days mountain biking with the family or a week of full-on downhill with your mates, you can purchase our mountain bike travel insurance with complete confidence that we have you covered. Our mountain bike travel insurance covers you for emergency medical expenses, repatriation to the UK and trip cancellation, plus all the features you’d expect from a standard, high-street travel insurance.
Our mountain bike holiday insurance policies also include extensive cover for Covid 19 related claims.
Mountain SPECIFIC or GENERIC TRAVEL?
We worked with follow mountain bike enthusiasts and our cuctomers to design a travel insurance product which fits the needs of mountain bikers, without sacrificing any aspect of a standard travel insurance product.
We realised most people were unaware of the restrictions on insurance policies provided by standard holiday insurance providers. Often, their policies excluded claims made if they had come off their bikes whilst on a cycling specific holiday.
