Travel Insurance For Sailing Courses

Things can go wrong. What if your sailing trip is cancelled due to weather? Or you lose your bags en route? Or someone steals your stuff? What if someone falls ill? Travel insurance is vital to a stress-free vacation.

For the above reasons we mandate that anyone doing our courses needs to obtain travel insurance. Many credit cards (esp. Chase Sapphire Reserve) provide insurance if you book the trip with their card. Perfect. In other instances you will need to buy separate travel insurance.

While we don’t mind who you choose, Sailing Virgins has partnered with World Nomads to offer sailing trip insurance to our students. We like them: they have paid out our claims before without issue.

Also, you can buy and claim online, even after you have left home. Travel insurance from is available to people from 140 countries. It’s designed for adventurous travellers with cover for overseas medical, evacuation, baggage and a range of adventure sports and activities.
