Travel Insurance for Scouts

The Scouts Official Travel Partner

At Unity, we understand the unique needs of Scouts embarking on exciting adventures, both within the UK and across international borders. Our Scout Travel Insurance has been created to provide comprehensive cover for a wide range of scenarios, ensuring peace of mind for Scout members and leaders alike.

Travel with confidence – Travel with Unity Insurance Services.

Key Features of the Unity Scout Travel Insurance Policy:

  1. All-Inclusive Cover for Recognised Scouting Activities: Unlike many other travel insurance policies, our cover extends to all recognised Scouting activities. Whether you're camping in the UK or exploring foreign landscapes, rest assured that you're protected.

  2. Adaptable to The Scout Association's Travel Decisions: If Scout’s HQ deems it unsuitable to travel to a specific area or country, and it's not an official travel ban by the UK Government, our Scout Travel Insurance ensures that Scout members are covered for trip cancellations.

Cover Highlights:

  1. Cancellation or Curtailment: Reimbursement for trip disruptions due to circumstances beyond your control.
  2. Missed Departure: Cover for unexpected delays causing missed departures.
  3. Supplementary Travel and Accommodation Expenses: Reimbursement for additional expenses incurred during travel.
  4. Personal Injury: Financial protection in case of personal injury during Scout activities.
  5. Hospital Stay Benefit: Additional support to ease the financial burden of hospital stays.
  6. Personal Belongings: Protection against loss or damage to personal belongings.
  7. Money and Credit Card Misuse: Cover for lost cash and unauthorised credit card usage.
  8. Delayed Baggage: Reimbursement for essential items in case of delayed baggage.

Special Cover for Overseas Trips:

  • Medical and Emergency Repatriation Expenses: Comprehensive cover for medical emergencies and repatriation.
  • Loss of Passport: Assistance in the event of passport loss.
  • Travel Delay: Compensation for delays affecting your travel plans.
  • Piste Closure and Mountain Rescue Plus: Tailored cover for skiing and mountain-related activities.
