Set sail with a reliable travel insurance policy from Holiday Extras with cover for 100+ sports

Booking travel insurance including sailing

If you are a keen water sports holidaymaker, you should take every chance to dive in throughout your travels. Finding the best holiday insurance means you can do so with a financial safety net should anything go wrong. Every travel insurance policy we sell already includes cover for over 100 sports and water sports. If you like to sail then depending on what type of sailboat and whereabouts you'll be sailing, we'll ensure you set sail with great levels of cover.

Types of sailing

With so many types of sailing to be tried, it's important to know which ones we cover. If you were planning to jump onboard a keelboat then, we wouldn't be able to cover you. But there are plenty others for you to try:

  • Catamaran sailing - you must be qualified
  • Dinghy sailing
  • Sailing - you must be qualified and sailing in territorial waters
  • Yachting - again you must be qualified and within territorial waters only

If you're still unsure if we can cover your chosen sport, water sport or activity, don't hesitate to call us. It's free to call and we might be able to add cover for your activity to your policy for a small sum.

Cover levels provided for sailing activities

Whether you choose to book a single trip policy or an annual multi-trip policy, you're covered to travel throughout the UK, Europe and worldwide. With every policy, you'll find financial protection for cancellation and medical costs, personal possessions cover and 24/7 emergency assistance:

  • £5,000 - £5,000 per person for cancellation fees
  • £1 million - £5, million towards medical cover
  • £1,500 baggage cover
  • 24/7 Emergency assistance

What am I not covered for?

Please bear in mind that for the above water sports activities, we do not provide personal liability cover. This means we won't cover you for any accidents caused by you, that you are legally liable for. So for example, if you cause bodily injury to any other person or cause damage to a property that you do not own, rent or have hired.
