Running travel insurance

Going running can be a fun way of exploring a new holiday destination. Finding the right travel insurance for that should be just as simple as putting one foot in front of the other.

Whether it’s your first time going on runs abroad or you have previous experience, you can be rest assured knowing that your running 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 fishing, and even basic scuba diving! As always terms and conditions apply, so check the policy wording for full details of these and the other activities we cover.
