Fishing travel insurance
Going fishing is a favourite pastime for many people, and can be as relaxing or extreme as you choose to make it. Some types of fishing can be quite adventurous so you’re going to need adequate travel insurance.
Our travel insurance policies all come with automatic cover for over 50 sports and activities including insurance for surfing, jet skiing and even basic scuba diving! If you’re going fishing on holiday, you’ll be pleased to know that cover for all types of fishing, including deep sea fishing, is included at no extra charge. You’ll be covered for fishing while you’re away, even if you’re doing it for your entire trip.
Whether you’re new to fishing or experienced in fishing at sea, you can rest assured knowing that your travel insurance won’t be something to worry about. As always terms and conditions apply, so check the policy wording for full details of these and the other activities we cover.
Why do you need travel insurance for fishing?
While incredibly fun, fishing can carry hidden risks. Slipping on a wet surface or cutting yourself with a pocket knife could lead to an injury abroad, and you may need medical attention. It’s important to think about having a thorough travel insurance policy which will cover you in the event of an accident or injury. Rest assured, we’ll have you covered!

Will my fishing equipment be insured?
While fishing is automatically covered under all our policies, sports equipment can be expensive, so if you’re travelling with yours it’s important that it’s fully insured. All our policies include cover for valuables, including sports equipment, so make sure you choose the right level of cover for your needs. If your fishing equipment 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.
