You should have a specialist cycling travel insurance policy that includes Emergency Medical Expenses in the event of an accident, Activity Equipment if your bike is accidentally damaged or stolen in transit and more.
2. What happens if I fall off my bike when Cycling abroad and get injured? How am I covered?
This Cycling policy covers Emergency Medical and Repatriation back to the UK up to £5m in case of an accident or injury while Cycling, stationary or just travelling.
All policies come with a 24/7 Emergency assistance line.
3. Cycling is the sole purpose of my trip; am I covered?
Yes, all of our policies cover Cycling as the sole purpose of your trip with no limitation to the number of days you can cycle.
4. Is there any cover if my bike is stolen?
All of our policies include cover for theft whilst in Transit or Locked Storage.
Owned Activity Equipment covers up to £1,500 (single article/pair/set limit: £750) or Hired Activity Equipment covers up to £750 (single article/pair/set limit £500)
