Scout Travel Insurance

When travelling with your group, it’s important to have peace of mind that you have full insurance cover for every situation, no matter what, so you can concentrate on making the most of your trip.

Our comprehensive Scout Travel policy covers include medical expenses and repatriation where appropriate, as well as covering costs should your trip be cancelled, or for lost baggage, personal items, and cash, whether you are abroad or in the UK.

Being owned by The Scouts means our insurance specialists are on hand to help you at every point.

And, as part of our policy you’ll be covered for all recognised Scouting activities providing you are working within POR (Policy, Organising and Rules).

For example, if The Scouts deem it unsuitable to travel to a certain area or country even if there wasn’t an official travel ban by the UK Government, Scout members would be safe with the knowledge that the movement would protect them, and our Scout travel policy would cover cancellation of their trip.

What do we cover in a UK travel policy?

  • Cancellation or curtailment (disruption) to your trip due to circumstances outside your control
  • Missed departure
  • Supplementary travel and accommodation expenses
  • Personal injury
  • Hospital stay benefit (if as a Leader you were required to stay on with an injured/unwell minor receiving hospital treatment)
  • Personal belongings
  • Money
  • Credit card misuse
  • Delayed baggage

And for overseas trips, including the Channel Islands and Isle of Man, we can also all of the above and more:

  • Medical and emergency repatriation expenses
  • Loss of passport
  • Travel delay
  • Piste closure

There are additional options of cover:

  • Mountain rescue plus
  • Covid-19
  • Cancellation

All our policies are subject to policy terms and conditions.
