For many cycling enthusiasts the excitement of cycling is about challenging yourself and taking the more extreme path to get that adrenaline rush. For those who love to cycle and who love to travel, combining these passions in a new country with different terrain and meeting new cyclists adds to the experience.
If cycling for you is all about the thrill of mountain biking downhill, crossing the finish line at a track or road event, or showing off your BMX or freestyle tricks, and you want to experience new cycling challenges across the world, then our Extreme Cycle Travel insurance may be just what you are looking for. With the same covers as our Recreational and Touring policies, the Extreme policy also covers you for BMX-ing, downhill mountain biking, freestyle, time-trialling and track & road racing.
As people who love to travel and also have a passion for cycling, we have designed our Extreme cover with the needs of even the most extreme cycling enthusiast in mind. Participating in a Triathlon is becoming more and more popular with cyclists looking to find new challenges and with our Extreme policy you are able to upgrade your policy to include Triathlon cover.
For cyclists your bike is not only an incredibly essential element of your cycling trip but that it is also often a highly cherished possession. Our policies cover bicycles worth up to £2,500 as standard but we also offer you the opportunity to upgrade your bicycle cover to up to £5,000. All of our Cycle Insurance policies cover your bicycle in the case of theft and accidental damage.
Our Cycling Insurance policies also cover all the essential elements of your holiday including medical expenses, cancellation, curtailment, personal effects, legal costs and expenses. We also offer you the option to upgrade your cancellation cover, useful if you have booked a course and would like to cover the expense of your course fees should you not be able to attend.
If you’re planning a holiday with your partner, family or are taking the trip on your own we offer individual, couple, family and single parent policies. Our Cycling Insurance offers you cover for an international choice of destinations, including the UK, and our Single Trip policy offers up to 365 days of cover on one single trip. We also offer an annual multi-trip policy, ideal if you plan to travel throughout the year for various competitions, events or festivals in the international cycling calendar.
In addition to the extensive cycling cover on our Extreme policy, we know that there may well be other activities or sports you want to try out when you’re away. Our policies provide you with cover for a number of different sports, water sports and extreme activities including bungee jumping. So if you’re looking for extreme sports travel insurance, it’s not just about the cycling.
