It is a requirement of joining our trips that you must have travel insurance which covers you for all activities that you will be taking part in during your trip, including all 'open water swimming' activities. Your policy must also cover medical treatment, including repatriation, ambulance, air ambulance and helicopter rescue services. Please be aware that it is your responsibility to ensure you are fully covered for the activities that you choose to undertake whilst travelling with SwimTrek.
All insurance policy information must be added to the My Travel Details section of your SwimTrek account prior to your trip. Please note that you may also be asked for a copy of your insurance information by your SwimTrek guide, so please ensure that you take this with you on your trip.
Please note that if you are a resident of the UK and are eligible for free health coverage through the NHS (National Health Service), travel insurance is not compulsory for trips which take place within the United Kingdom. We do, however, still recommend that you take out adequate travel insurance to cover you for things such as trip cancellation, lost luggage, personal liability etc.
SwimTrek has teamed up with a number of Insurance providers who offer policies which cover SwimTrek activities. If you choose not to take out a policy with one of these providers, you must ensure that the policy you do take out provides adequate protection as stated at the beginning of this page.
For all UK residents, we have teamed up with Endsleigh who offer two different levels of cover ‘Essential' and 'Comprehensive’.
‘Essential’ allows you to travel with the cover needed for holiday emergencies at a modest price, whilst ‘Comprehensive’ cover includes higher benefit levels and a wider range of cover including hospitalisation benefit, baggage delay and delayed departure.
Either policy will provide you with immediate cover should you be prevented from travelling due to an illness or serious accident. Each policy has over 80 sports and activities covered as standard, with the option to choose additional cover if required.
