Insurance Cover For Professional and High Risk Sport


Over the last few years, we have arranged insurance cover for competitive (medal winning) cyclists, waterskiers, roller derby teams, multi-sport athletes, horse riders, Nitro Circus and cheerleading teams - to name just a few.  We have also arranged cover for sailing holidays and New Zealanders heading overseas for martial arts demonstrations. In fact, we have extensive experience in obtaining cover for extreme sport and professional sports athletes.

The reason we highlight this is because professional and competitive high-risk activities are often excluded from standard travel insurance policies.  Luckily, the team at Health and Travel have a proven record in obtaining insurance cover for these types of sports and many other high-risk activities.  We can tailor a high risk extreme sport travel insurance package to meet your needs, and any requirements for obtaining entry to international sports events.

So, if you are into extreme or high risk sports, or you are planning to compete in a sporting event (either as a professional or amateur), we can help.  Even something as seemingly simple as doing a motorbike tour across Australia needs to be carefully reviewed to make sure your travel insurance coverage is adequate.

The key benefits of the right insurance cover include:

  • Unlimited medical and evacuation cover with no excess/deductible on medical claims

  • Options to add cover for luggage, missed flights, personal liability

  • Options to add cover for high-value sports items such as bicycles, ski’s, snowboards, and so on that may be damaged while in transit or lost/stolen while you are travelling.

We have great experience developing special custom plans for extreme sports clients and professional athletes, and we're happy to help.
