From 5th May 2021 while we can still cover you under the standard sections of our travel insurance policy while on a Golf holiday we are temporarily unable to offer the additional cover provided by the Golf optional extra section, while we make improvements to the booking engine of our website.

However, this is just a temporary measure. In the near future we will be able to offer this extra cover to golfers on our policies once more. Policies purchased before 5th May 2021 aren’t affected and your cover won’t change.

Our golf holiday insurance is available as an add-on when you buy Single Trip or Annual insurance. You’ll also need to purchase either a Silver or a Gold level of cover. You’ll then be protected against:
  • Cancelling or curtailing your trip
  • Emergency medical and associated expenses
  • Loss of passport
  • Delayed personal possessions
  • Lost, stolen or damaged personal possessions
  • Loss of personal money
  • Personal accident
  • Missed departures
  • Delayed departures
  • Personal liability
  • Legal expenses
  • End-supplier failure*

*Only available with Gold level cover.
Terms and Conditions apply.

When you select travel insurance including golf cover, you’ll also be protected against:
  • Loss of green fees: If you have to cancel your trip or cut it short, or if you cannot play golf because of an injury or illness during your trip, we’ll pay up to the amount shown in your schedule for green fees that you have paid and cannot recover from anywhere else.
  • Delayed golf equipment: We’ll pay up to the amount shown in the schedule for you to hire alternative golf equipment if yours is stolen on your outward journey, or is delayed for more than 12 hours from when you arrived at your destination.
  • Golf equipment: We’ll pay up to the amount shown in the schedule for golf equipment that is damaged, stolen, lost or destroyed on your trip.
Please note that, as part of our golf equipment insurance, we’ll decide whether to pay the cost of repairing your items, whether to replace your belongings with equivalent items or pay the cost of replacing your items (in which case we’ll take off an amount for wear, tear and loss of value). 

Many bank accounts and credit cards come with some level of travel insurance cover. While some may be comprehensive, they may not cover you for everything you have planned whilst you’re away, particularly if you have adventurous plans or unusual excursions booked. 

Make sure you look into the travel insurance policy that you have before every trip, to make sure it’s suitable for you and your plans.

Purchasing a holiday using a credit card means you are often protected by Consumer Protection cover. In most cases, it allows you to get your money returned to you if your provider defaults and you cannot travel.

If you have booked a holiday through a tour operator or travel agent, it may be worth checking if you are covered by ABTA (Association of British Travel Agents) or ATOL (Air Travel Organiser’s License). This type of cover means that your package holiday is protected if, for example, the travel company providing your holiday arrangements or the travel agent themselves fail financially or close down.

Your travel agents will be able to tell you if your holiday is ABTA or ATOL protected. Alternatively, use the links provided to check your cover at home.

Having a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) or Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC) will entitle you to the government-provided healthcare of the European Union country you are visiting and lowering the medical costs you would normally expect to pay. Although this is a good addition to take on holiday, it should not be seen as a replacement for travel insurance which could provide you with further protection and peace of mind whilst you are abroad. Our travel insurance policies can protect you against many unforeseen eventualities.
If you fancy taking more than one golf break this year, our Annual travel insurance can protect you on an unlimited number of trips, lasting up to 31 days, over 1 year.
Whether you travel for work frequently or need insurance for just one trip, you can focus on the job at hand knowing you’re protected, with Business travel insurance from Allianz Assistance.
If you’re just heading on one golf holiday this year, then our Single Trip golf insurance is probably right for you. It’ll help cover you for up to 180 days.
Golf is a popular pastime for seniors. Our seniors travel insurance can include golf cover, so you can play to your heart’s content.
We will no longer be able to provide travel insurance policies that cover people's pre-existing medical conditions. This is only a temporary measure while we make improvements to the booking engine of our website. Please keep an eye on the Allianz Assistance website in the future so you are aware when we are able to offer this additional cover again. 
Many sports and leisure activities are covered on our standard travel insurance policies at no additional premium. We are unable to provide cover for riskier sports and leisure activities like kite surfing and rugby. This is a temporary measure while we make improvements. Please keep an eye on the Allianz Assistance website in the future so you are aware when we are able to offer this additional cover again.
