Travelling and Training or Competing around the globe just got a new safety net.
Now School Owners can to take their teams away and gain access to a very extensive TRAVEL INSURANCE POLICY
suitable for instructors, competitors and supporters with the team. Get all the standard travel policy items (cancelation, medical, loss etc) and medical specific cover for injuries sustained through training and or competing with loss of income also included. Please note the minimum number for the group discounted policies is 5 people.
Most travel industry insurances state they cover martial artists but when you ask the key questions, you find out they don’t actual cover you, whilst you’re training and / or competing. There is absolutely no cover if you are a professional instructor / competitor. This new policy covers it all and is now available at very competitive rates.
Travel Insurance Companies are not experts in martial arts, so they don’t know how you train or the real risks associated with your style. As experts in both areas we know what you need and can arrange the product that we feel is the best in the industry.
What is not covered in most Travel Insurance Policies: Training and Competing activities are not generally covered however they are in policy we can arrange on your behalf. Income Protection is also often not included and this can be costly if you have time off work especially if you are stranded overseas.
The most confusing thing you can read on travel insurance websites is that they promote they cover martial arts, but, when further investigation is undertaken it's clear actual training (with partner drills / sparring) is not covered. Obviously, this doesn’t make sense, as there are grey areas in what should be very clear. This is not something you want to find out when you get injured and prompted me to find a product that does what it says. Competing whether a tournament or fight show can actually be covered although there are a couple of limitations when it comes to broken bones.
We thought we would make it vary easy to decide on the best policy for those martial artists actually training and competing even as a professional can obtain insurance cover that means something. This policy covers students, instructors, promoters and their families whilst travelling interstate and overseas.
