Sports Travel Advice & Insurance

For every sports tour and tournament we provide comprehensive travel information, risk assessments, and recommendations according to the destination booked for your Sporta Tours sports tour.

Typically, we advise on what to pack and what not to (which can be just as important), plus visa requirements and any pre-travel medical advice. We’ll also provide useful reminders on essentials such as travel insurance via group or individual policies.

Travel Insurance: 

It’s important to have relevant travel insurance in place for groups travelling on overseas sports tours.  This can entail purchasing specialist sports travel insurance since many standard travel insurance policies do not protect travellers taking part in competitive sport, or for certain activities altogether.

As a condition of booking you are required to take out adequate travel insurance for yourself and all members of the tour party/group. Such travel insurance should cover you and all members of your tour party/group against the cost of cancellation by you/them, the cost of assistance, including repatriation, in the event of accident or illness or death, loss of or damage to baggage/equipment, loss of money and other expenses. It must also include cover for all activities you have booked including cover for sports injuries or fatalities for sports participants. It is a condition of us accepting your booking that you have made adequate insurance provision to cover all members of your tour party/group. Travel Insurance should be in place from the date the booking is confirmed and deposit is paid.

If you travel without adequate travel insurance cover, we will not be liable to you for any losses howsoever arising where cover would otherwise have been available.

If you would like to know more about anything regarding a tour, please contact us and refer to our terms and conditions. We also provide sports insurance information within our booking terms and conditions
