Some info About Protectivity

Protectivity is one of the very few insurance providers who specialise in offering travel insurance combined with sports accident protection for active individuals either in this country or abroad.

We are a well established company with more than 20 years experience in the travel and sports insurance industry, and are underwritten by Canopius Underwriting Ltd, part of Lloyds Syndicate.

We cover over 400 different sports, from rollerblading to re-enactment with steel weapons, and pony trekking to paragliding. If you take out cover for one sport, you are covered for all other sports in the same group and lower groups.

Our policies can be purchased online, and documents are emailed as soon as payment is received.

As a small friendly team we can offer a personalised service to clients, and in the event of a medical emergency, we have a 24 hour helpline for clients.

Our travel policy includes cover for medical expenses including;

  • repatriation,
  • personal liability,
  • search and rescue,
  • personal accident,
  • cancellation, and
  • baggage and sports equipment cover.

For individuals who already have a travel policy in place, we can offer our TopUp insurance which allows them to cover a sport or sports not already covered under their travel policy.

So if they are on holiday in New Zealand, and wish to do a Sky Dive, we can provide them with one day’s cover for that – at short notice if necessary.

For individuals wanting to cover themselves for doing a sport in this country – whether it be on an annual basis, or for single or multiple days, we can also offer Sports Accident insurance.

The main benefits with this policy are;

  • personal accident cover,
  • accidental death,
  • personal liability, and
  • broken bone cover.
  • There is also the option to add on loss of earnings cover.
