Yellow Jersey also offer travel insurance
Why do I need a specific Cycle Travel Insurance?
In much the same way as you buy travel insurance for winter sports, Yellow Jersey provides travel insurance specific to cycle events / trips.
If you already have travel insurance, ask yourself two simple questions:
- Have I checked it covers holidays where the primary purpose is cycling e.g. a training camp or cycle tour?
- Have I checked it covers me if I’m taking part in an event e.g. a long distance sportive, a charity ride or a triathlon race?
A lot of people are unaware that travel insurance provided by their work or banks excludes claims if they come off their bike whilst on a cycling specific holiday. Some travel insurers will cover cycling if it’s an incidental part of your holiday e.g. you hired a bike for a day with your family, but not if the primary purpose of the trip is cycling. So if you were racing an Ironman in Austria, taking part in the Mallorca 312 or simply training with a group in the Pyrenees your normal travel insurance is likely inadequate.
