Bodily Contact Sports and Travel Insurance

Last Updated:

Many travel insurance plans have specific exclusions to coverage for participation in bodily contact sports.  This means that people traveling to participate in sports tournaments would not be covered under emergency medical & dental if an injury were to occur.  However, look closely when comparing plans, as some travel insurance plans provides optional sports coverage as an upgrade.  When this is selected, the sports exclusion is waived, and injuries incurred during a game would be covered by the travel insurance policy.  Always refer to the certificate of insurance for details.
