Travel Insurance for Scouts

Travel insurance for your Scouts trips overseas and in the UK

As well as medical expenses and repatriation, travel insurance also includes reimbursement for costs for your trip being cancelled, and lost baggage, personal items and cash.

 

Our Scout Travel policy

We’ve developed travel insurance policies that are designed to meet your specific needs, whether you are camping in the UK or going on an overseas adventure.

 

Special features of our Scout Travel Insurance policy

Unlike many other travel insurance policies, you’ll be covered for all recognised Scouting activities.

 

What’s covered?*

  • 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
  • Personal belongings
  • Money
  • Credit card misuse
  • Delayed baggage

And for your overseas trips, we can also cover:

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

* subject to policy terms and conditions

Important Information for customers with pre-existing medical conditions

We are obliged to inform you of how to improve your access to travel insurance policies that includes cover for more serious medical conditions.

The following factors would determine when this information is relevant to you:

  • You have not been offered, or we/the insurer, have declined a quotation wholly or partly due to a medical condition
  • Your policy has been cancelled, wholly or partly, due to a medical condition
  • You have been offered a policy with a medical condition exclusion, which cannot be removed from the policy
  • You have been offered a policy with a medical condition premium of £100 or more
  • You have been offered a policy in respect of which the medical condition premium is not known.

We would like to provide you with details of a ‘Medical Cover Firm Directory’, which is a publicly available directory that only lists firms that provide or arrange travel insurance policies that cover more serious medical conditions. The directory will also show you enough information about each firm listed, so you can make an informed initial choice about which provider might meet your needs.

Some of the advantages of using the directory are it makes it easier for you to navigate the available market and it makes it more likely that you will find a firm who:

  • Is willing to offer cover for your condition
  • Is willing to offer cover for your condition without specific exclusions
  • Is willing to offer cover for your condition at a more affordable price.

The Money and Pensions Service (MaPS) has launched a travel insurance directory on its Money Advice Service website, which can be accessed here
