Make Sure You Are Covered – Golf Travel Insurance

While golf holidays provide endless fun and enjoyment to golfers, it is also important to make sure you have the correct travel insurance in place in cause of any mishaps. What some golfers fail to consider when travelling abroad is the importance of having adequate travel insurance that is tailored to the needs of a golfing holiday…..

With a comprehensive travel insurance policy that includes golf cover, you can safeguard yourself against the following….

  • Accidental loss, damage and theft of your golf equipment, including replacement equipment when necessary. If you take great care of your clubs at home, then while you’re abroad this shouldn’t have to change. Cover yourself against any loss or damage or even theft that may occur either in transit or on the course.
  • If you’re not travelling with your equipment, then you should be able to benefit from the same protection for any hired equipment you will need. By having a Golf travel insurance policy you’ll be covered for damage, loss and theft of any hired equipment too.
  • If you end up having to leave the course or miss a few rounds due to injury, illness or adverse weather conditions, a golf travel insurance policy will reimburse any non-refundable or pre-paid green fees. Green fees can be very expensive depending on where you’re playing, and these fees can all add up over the course of a holiday so having this added security will mean that if the worst happens, you’ll be able to claim back what you have lost.
  • Travel Disruption Cover is also a very useful addition to any travel insurance policy. With aviation strikes, airline issues and weather conditions such as storms, travellers can often be left stranded in the airport hours before their holiday is due to begin. Although your airline will reimburse you for the cost of your flight and other related costs, you will be covered you for up to a further €1,000 that can be used for accommodation if you have to be moved due to these circumstances.

Once you’ve secured a golf travel insurance policy, you’ll be able to push these worries to the back of your mind and focus on the more important considerations, like your golf swing 🙂
