Will Standard Travel Insurance Provide Cycle Holiday Insurance Cover?
If you already have travel insurance be sure to always consult your policy wording and documentation to ensure you have adequate cycling holiday insurance.
Standard cover will not necessarily always provide cycle trip insurance for cycle touring or indeed other cycling activities. Should you have an accident whilst on a cycling holiday you will need cycle trip insurance as the EHIC will no longer be valid after Brexit. Be wary of general travel policies as they do not always provide cover for road riding or competitions and will typically not include cover for your bike or personal liability. With a Snowcard cycle holiday insurance, you can insure your bike for values upto £5000..
With a Snowcard policy, you can enjoy your cycling holiday safe in the knowledge that you have specialist cycling holiday insurance which is tailored and personalised to you.
