What happens if I don't declare an activity?

We automatically cover many activities but you must tell us about an activity you plan on doing especially if this is not included in our standard cover. Our easy online form lets you declare all activities to ensure you buy the right protection you need. If you don't declare an activity for which an additional premium may be chargeable it could mean that you won't be covered in the event of a claim or your policy could be invalid. So, to make sure you're fully protected choose the activities that are right for you.

It's important to know:

  1. Many activities are covered as standard for Direct Travel polices
  2. You must be 18 years or over to purchase
  3. We are unable to provide cover for countries where the Foreign Office has warned against all (or all but essential) travel - please visit the FCDO updates to check updated warnings. Alternatively, call them on 020 7008 1500
  4. This product is available for UK residents only
  5. Upper age limits may apply
