What is Travel Insurance?
Travel insurance is not included with your membership, therefore, it is strongly recommended that you obtain adequate cover before you travel abroad.
You should ensure that any travel policy you obtain covers you for the activities that you are planning to undertake, especially if you are planning to take part in organised cycling events of any kind.
Comprehensive travel insurance is available for single trips of or alternatively an annual policy can be purchased. Cover includes legal expenses and all non-hazardous holiday activities which can be extended to include a wide range of cycling disciplines including competitive events for most cycling disciplines.
It is also advisable to check whether your bicycle is covered by insurance before you travel and make any necessary arrangements in this regard (see Bike insurance). Premiums vary according to geographic location and the duration of your trip.
