Sports insurance cover

Activity Top Up Insurance
Many travel insurance policies will exclude cycling in “organised events” or “races” while abroad. Through our partners Sports Cover Direct you can purchase a policy to cover cycling and many other activities.

If you already have general travel insurance in place, but it does not include cover for your chosen sport/activity, Activity TopUp will provide that cover. You only need to take out cover for the day(s) that you will be doing the selected activity. This can be taken out after you have left Ireland/UK.

Car Hire Excess Cover

Car hire excessvcover

When you hire a car the insurance included in the rental cost generally covers you for “Collision Damage Waiver” and Theft. In most agreements you are still liable for the first portion of the repair or replacement costs otherwise known as the “Excess”, which can vary from €400 up to €2,000.

The car hire company will offer you an ‘excess waiver’ insurance but they will charge anything from €8 to €15 per day of rental.

You can avoid this charge by purchasing Car Hire Excess in advance. From as little as €2.99 per day or €59.99 for an annual policy, you can cover the excess on your car hire whilst abroad (or within your usual country of residence for a small additional premium). The policy is underwritten by Inter Partner Assistance who are a wholly owned subsidiary of AXA Assistance SA and part of the worldwide Axa Group.

We insure the Policy holder, not the car rental vehicle. If you purchase this policy you will still be liable to the car hire company for the excess but you then claim for reimbursement on your car hire excess policy.

Activity Levels

Activity Levels range from Leisurely to Tough, the grading takes into account the daily cycling distances and terrain, as well as any technical riding skill required. We also consider the number of cycling days as there can be a cumulative affect from tiredness on a longer trip and the type of accommodation used, as this can also influence your day to day recovery.

If you are in any doubt, please give us a call on +353-1-607 9900 or email us.

Activity level 1 - Leisurely Activity level 1: Leisurely

If you can ride a bike and enjoy gentle exercise, these are an ideal introduction to a cycling holiday. No routes are entirely flat, so expect some short climbs and descents. Maximum daily height gain is approximately 250 metres and daily distances rarely exceed 50kms (32 miles), any longer days are often optional.

Activity level 3 - Moderate Activity level 3: Moderate

Most people who enjoy a weekend riding at home will enjoy a Moderate trip. You need to be in good health and reasonably fit. Ideal for occasional cyclists, or as a more relaxed trip for fitter riders. Moderate off-road trips require no previous experience. Distances rarely exceed 70kms (43 miles) per day.

Activity level 5 - Challenging Activity level 5: Challenging

For any ride at this level, fitness is important. Challenging trips require confidence in your ability and physical condition. They are equivalent to an extended period of cycling at home. Previous mountain biking experience is essential for Challenging off road trips as they will involve some technical riding.

Activity level 7 - Tough Activity level 7: Tough

Previous experience of the cycling style or surface is a must as these routes have long cycling days and tougher terrain on both road and off road trips. You need complete confidence in your fitness and technical ability to cope with difficult or steep terrain, rough surfaces and longer distances. Ideal for those seeking a challenge!

Split grades

In order to provide more accuracy, where a trip falls between two grades we use an intermediate or ‘split’ grade, for example 2: Leisurely/Moderate.
