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.
Although our solicitors may provide you with advice in respect of incidents abroad we are unable to fund and do not actively pursue claims against third parties in these circumstances. In this instance members are strongly advised to obtain adequate travel insurance with legal expenses cover.
Comprehensive travel insurance is available for trips of up to 6 months or alternatively an annual policy can be purchased. Cover includes legal expenses and all non-hazardous holiday activities which can be extended to include all forms of cycling, including racing.
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.
To get this benefit, as well as all the other great benefits on offer, you can join British Cycling for less than 10p per day. If you’re already a member, click on ‘Claim Benefit’ below to find out the redemption process.
