Cricket travel insurance

Cricket can be a potentially risky sport, with bowling speeds of up to 100mph and all the additional dangers presented by swinging bats.

That said, generally the sport is easy-going and we’re happy to provide cover for cricket under all our policies, alongside automatic cover for over 50 other sports and activities including insurance for hiking and cycling!

Whether you play often or not, you can rest assured knowing that you won’t need to worry about getting additional extreme sports travel insurance for cricket. As always terms and conditions apply, so check the policy wording for full details of this and the other activities we cover.

Please note that while cricket is covered by our policies, you won’t be covered if this is the main purpose of your trip.

If your cricket bat is particularly expensive, you can even add extended valuables cover to your policy, which covers up to £1,000 per item – see our policy wordings for more details.
