Travel Insurance
We strongly recommend that you and all the members of your travelling party are adequately insured with travel and medical cover as soon as you book your holiday.

You may wish to take extra insurance to cover your child while playing sports - here are a couple of companies that offer a policy:

  • PJ Hayman Insurance add on "Adventures Policy" to an existing travel policy which will cover medical and injury problems when playing games. Call them Tel 02392 419 070 or get a quote online by clicking 'Buy online' and then Adventures
  • Sports Cover Direct Tel: 01494 484800, has specific insurance cover for Hockey (hard ball sports) that can also be combined with travel insurance (quite expensive).
