Mountain biking travel insurance
Mountain biking can be a very fun activity, especially when you’re on holiday, but it’s important to make sure that you’re adequately covered. Whether you’re new to mountain biking or a seasoned participant, you can be rest assured knowing that your mountain biking travel insurance won’t be something to worry about.
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! Mountain biking is included in all our policies free of charge, but it’s important to note that if you’re going to be downhill racing or riding over extreme ground conditions, you’ll need to purchase additional cover for adventure and extreme sports.
As always terms and conditions apply, so check the policy wording for full details of these and the other activities we cover.

It’s important to think about having a travel insurance policy which will cover you in the event of an accident or injury. We’ll have you covered!

Will my mountain bike be insured?
While mountain biking is automatically covered under all our policies, equipment can be expensive, so if you’re travelling with yours it’s important that it’s fully insured.
