What is Golf Travel Insurance?

With golf travel insurance you get cover in case you unexpectedly get taken away from the greens or can't continue your planned golfing trip. When you add our optional golf cover to your existing policy and if you take ill whilst on your trip and cannot get back prepaid green fees, you'll be covered. It also provides cover if your golf equipment (whether owned or hired) is lost, stolen or damaged. As such this is designed to enable you to play more golf without the worry of what might go wrong. Please see our policy document (page 20) for full details of this cover.
