Activity Guide

Activity Packs

Unlike other policies we cover many sports and activities as standard, no additional premium is required for activities listed in Activity Pack 1. We have categorised the activities that are not covered as standard into seven further bands. If you do not see your chosen activity, do not worry, we may cover it, but you must contact us so we can discuss the activity and what, if any additional premium is necessary. The activities covered are on a ‘non incidental basis’ – meaning that your chosen activity is not the sole purpose of your trip (with the exception of wintersports whereby you can opt to have specific winter cover included to cover you for the entire duration of your trip). 

You can add Activity Packs 2 and 3 as Optional Extras when purchasing a policy online. You can add Activity Packs 4-8 by calling us on 0333 772 0346 (Mon-Fri, 9:00 - 5:00)
