If its Bike and Travel insurance you are looking for we have just the company for you. For the last few years, we have developed a partnership with Yellow Jersey. Their comprehensive policies mean we’re happy to recommend them as we know they cover all the requirements of our guests. Their policies are available as short-term and annual, so you can just get sorted for this trip or get covered for riding all year long. The two policies work in tandem to keep both you and your bike fully covered for your trip.

Travel insurance

If you already have travel insurance, make sure you check the small print. Many insurers exclude cover while cycling if it’s the main reason for your trip, especially mountain biking and ‘downhill’ mountain biking as it is a higher risk activity. You don’t want to find out the hard (and expensive) way that you’re not covered!

Yellow Jersey’s policy covers all the standard things you’d want from your travel insurance like trip cancellation, missed departure, delayed baggage and holiday abandonment, as well
as:

● Your participation in all types of cycling, including racing
● Medical expenses, including mountain search & rescue and repatriation
