Does your travel insurance cover you whilst sailing offshore?


Specifically designed sailing travel insurance ensures adequate cover whilst at sea. Topsail Insurance offer a Yachtsman’s Travel Insurance policy designed specifically to cover you whilst sailing both in coastal waters and offshore. Whether you own a boat, intend to charter one or are planning a circumnavigation of the globe, the policy offers you peace of mind while away. Single trip and annual policies are available, both with worldwide trip coverage. All annual policies also offer general travel cover as well.

There are a couple of other points that are significant in all travel insurance policies, but especially relevant to those taking to the water. Make sure your policy includes the following:

High Levels of Medical Cover

The biggest travel concern is the cost of medical treatment abroad which can be extremely expensive. When taking out travel insurance it is essential that you make sure your policy offers sufficient coverage for medical costs. Does your policy cover airlift from your boat? Topsail’s Yachtsman’s Travel Insurance policies include £5,000,000 Medical & Repatriation cover as standard and will have you airlifted off the boat if necessary

Personal Liability Cover.

Sometimes things can go wrong while sailing. No matter how much training and experience you have, conditions can conspire against us – sometimes with costly consequences. If you find yourself in a situation where injury has occurred, then personal liability cover is invaluable for taking care of the costs you may be liable for.

Ensure you are adequately covered today so that you can focus on the important thing - enjoying your trip!
