Travel Insurance For Sailing Courses

What if your sailing trip is cancelled due to weather? Or your bags are lost en route? Or stolen? 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. This is a decent review of travel insurance (that actually recommends Travelex Travel Select).

While we don’t mind who you go with, Sailing Virgins has partnered with World Nomads to offer sailing trip insurance to our students.

You can buy and claim online, even after you’ve 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.
