If you are planning a trip to Spain or further a field such as a Golf holiday in the USA, a specialist Golf Travel Insurance policy is vital.
Golf Travel Insurance is different from a standard policy as it is tailored specifically to your needs as a golfer, and comes with a range of additional extras that are essential when going on a golf holiday.
This cover can provide peace of mind, if you are a avid golfer and you plan to spend most of your holiday playing golf.
What does Golf Travel Insurance cover ?
Typically, Golf Insurance cover includes loss, theft and accidental damage to your golf equipment, including golf clubs, while you are away. It also covers non refundable green fees which you have paid for.
Some policies include financial failure protection as standard, this will protect you in the event of an “end user” such as a travel company, hotel or scheduled airline going into administration.
Other insurance cover to keep in mind, is personal effects, personal money, missed departure, and hospital benefit.
Are injuries covered by my Travel Insurance policy ?
Golf is classed as a “low risk” sport by travel insurance providers any injuries whilst playing golf would be covered by a standard travel insurance policy. If you injure someone else while playing golf, you are unlikely to be covered – unless it states on your certificate that your policy covers additional cover while playing the sport.
