Sports Travel Insurance Policy Offer

This news post was originally published in October 2021. At the time BF sourced cover in response to member concerns over cost and cover post Covid. Since October 2021, insurance policies and offers have changed and members are encouraged to compare providers for products that best suit their needs.

Includes cover for fencers travelling to train and compete abroad.

Bluefin Sport, our Insurance Broker, has teamed up with Jackson Lee Underwriting to provide you with a quick and easy way to obtain a quotation and purchase online here. There are two types of policy available:

  • Sports Travel + Insurance – provides cover for sports individuals, which includes cover whilst competing; which is often excluded from a standard travel policy.
  • Holiday Travel Insurance – provides cover for those unexpected events that could occur before a holiday, whilst travelling, or whilst on holiday e.g. cancelling or cutting short a holiday or needing medical treatment. You can choose to purchase a single trip policy to cover one holiday only or an annual multi-trip policy to cover several individual holidays.

Importantly this policy does not exclude fencers that can sometimes be deemed as professionals by insurers eg those fencers that may be receiving grant/sponsorship income or are training ‘full-time’ (eg a fencer taking a break from employment and education to train).


COVID-19 cover included as standard

  • Cancellation if the insured, member of the household, travelling companion or friend they are staying with are diagnosed with Covid-19 within 14 days prior to departure date.
  • Curtailment due to death of a close relative.
  • Medical Expenses including additional accommodation costs (room only) and repatriation back to the UK.


Optional Enhanced COVID-19 Cover for Vaccinated Individuals

  • Cover for travel within Europe to destinations where the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office advice against all but essential travel solely due to assessment of Covid-19 risk.
  • Cancellation cover if contacted by UK Test & Trace and told to self-isolate and this prevents the insured from starting their trip.
