Travel Insurance for Golfing Trips Abroad

Golf Cover has been designed with golfers in mind and although playing non-competitive golf is covered within our policies under activities pack A at no extra cost, it is worthwhile considering taking out the Golf Cover extension. This Golf Holiday Travel Insurance extends your standard Travel Insurance policy to provide golf club cover, safeguarding your equipment and non-refundable green fees. It can be added to most Travel Insurance policies taken out with Just Travel Cover including single and annual trips.

All Travel Insurance policies at Just Travel Cover come with Covid-19 cover as standard. Covid-19 cover offers your protection against cancellation if you contract Covid-19 before your holiday and cannot travel as well as emergency medical expenses if you contract Covid-19 whilst abroad.

Don’t forget that as we work with a panel of insurers we can provide cover for hundreds of pre-existing medical conditions with no upper age limit. We advise to always check the policy wording to ensure that you have the appropriate level of cover for your needs and are aware of any exclusions that may apply. 

Is it worth getting Golf Cover?

Travel Insurance with golf extension protects any owned or hired golf equipment. The additional golf club insurance for travel will include the repair or replacement of golfing equipment that has been lost, stolen or damaged whilst on your trip. You will also be able to claim a set amount for the cost of hiring replacement golf equipment that was a result of accidental loss, theft or damage to your own golfing equipment during your golf break.

Not only this, it also provides cover for loss of non-refundable green fees and some insurers offer cover for ‘Hole in One’. Always check your policy wording for your chosen insurer as cover varies by insurer and some policies contain exclusions.

Other Benefits

Not only do you get the same benefits as a standard Travel Insurance policy you will also get the following benefits with the Golf Cover extension:

Golf Equipment

Claim up to 85% of the cost for any golf equipment that is lost, stolen or damaged during your trip. Terms apply.

Delayed Golf Equipment & Golf Hire
