Keen golfers may make several trips abroad each year to tee off in some of the world’s most impressive golf courses. As such they will need to find a specialist travel insurance policy that will ensure that the costs associated with their golfing holiday are covered.
Golf travel insurance is available as both a single-trip or annual travel insurance policy, meaning that whether you are testing your golfing mettle with one or several trips abroad, you can be assured of comprehensive travel insurance cover.
What is included in my golf travel insurance policy?
Taking out a golf travel insurance policy will give you the freedom to fully enjoy your golfing break, knowing that your golf equipment and green fees are covered in the event of damage or theft.
Even if you are only spending a portion of your holiday on the golf course, your golf travel insurance will ensure that any golf equipment that you hire is also covered.
Do I need to take out a separate standard travel insurance policy?
Golf travel insurance includes all the features you would come to expect from a standard travel insurance policy, so there is no need to take out a separate policy.
Your golf travel insurance policy includes cover for emergency medical expenses, cover of loss of baggage, personal money, passport and documents.
If your golfing holiday is delayed for reasons beyond your control, such as an accident or illness, golf travel insurance cover will ensure that you are compensated for cancellation or curtailment, giving you a second chance to vie for that hole in one.
What if I want to take part in other activities on my golfing trip?
Your golf travel insurance policy also covers you for a wide range of activities away from the golf course. Whether you want to try out activities from jet skiing to sailing you will be covered as standard under your policy.
If you are keen to try out something a little more adventurous from parascending to black water rafting you will simply need to add cover for hazardous activities to your policy.
I am only travelling to the US for my golfing break, is this covered by my golf travel insurance?
Your golf travel insurance can be tailored to meet your individual needs. If you are travelling to the US you can opt for worldwide travel insurance cover. If you are heading to the continent, then you can opt for european travel insurance cover.
