Booking Travel Insurance

When booking a Sportif Holiday you are advised to book your windsurfing, kitesurfing or other activity insurance as soon as you book your holiday. This is mandatory as part of your booking conditions and will ensure you have adequate cover for the following.

   Travel Cover    3rd Party Liability
   Medical Cover    Insure your own equipment
   Cancellation    Insure your rental equipment

There are many insurance companies offering travel cover, with varying conditions, so we recommend you checking the small print carefully before you purchase your insurance, to make sure you have the levels of cover you require. 

Coronavirus Covid-19 Cover - Frequently Asked Questions

It is an essential part of your holiday planning to get adequate insurance cover. Here are some of the questions we have been asked about cover.

Will my travel insurance cover me for Covid-19?
If you purchased your travel insurance before early to mid March 2020 you are likely still to be covered. It will depend on the wording on your policy supplied at the time. It is worth checking the exclusions and calling your insurance company to check your exact cover.

I have rebooked my holiday for a later date, will my  travel insurance cover me for Covid-19?
Most insurance companies are allowing customers Travel Policy to cover a rebooked holiday, at a later date, with the same level of cover. It is worth checking your policy wording and calling your insurance company to get confirmation of this.

I haven't bought a travel insurance policy yet - will I get cover for Covid-19?
Over the recent months, many travel companies have amended their cover and changed their terms and conditions to exclude Covid-19 related claims whilst still offering travel insurance. 

However there are some insurance companies, that are offering cover whilst abroad for Covid-19, including cover for sports and activities which may not be included in general travel insurance policies. You can find these companies and check the cover available by searching online.

Am I covered for cancellation due to illness including Coronavirus before and after I travel?

We recommend you check the full details of the policy and what is covered before booking your holiday, including cover for all sports and activities on your holiday, inlcuidng windsurfing, surfing, stand up paddle boarding and scuba diving.

Does all travel insurance cover sports and activities?

Some travel insurers do not cover all sports and activities such as windsurfing, kitesurfing, sailing, surfing, stand up paddle boarding or scuba diving. We recommend you check if you will be insured at the time of booking your policy and take out additional insurance cover if you are not covered. 

My Insurance doesn't cover 3rd Party liabilty. What is this and why do I need it?
When on a Sportif holiday your windsurfing, kitesurfing or other sports services are booked to take place under the supervision of a professional partner centre with safety cover during opening hours. If, however, you were to be involved in an accident with another person whilst on the water, we would advise you have 3rd party liabilty to cover you for any potential claims against you. Not all general travel and insurance policies will cover you for holidays involving sports such as windsurfing, kitesurfing and surfing. However it is possible to get extension insurance to cover your sports, with specialist insurance companies offering cover for sports and activity holidays or through sports organisations.

PLEASE NOTEFor travel to Dakhla - this is considered, for insurance purposes, to be in the Country of Western Sahara rather than Morocco. Please ensure you put WESTERN SAHARA as your country when booking your online insurance. If you select Morocco, this will invalidate your insurance.
