Travel Insurance

These days Sports Tours International are well-known as the number one choice for travelling athletes, and sporting enthusiasts, in Europe. We are the go to for anyone who wants to take part in events across the world. As International Travel Partner of the 6 World Marathon Majors, and VIP tour operator of the 3 Grand Tours and 5 Monuments of Cycling, we cover a wide range of events.

Sports Tours International has partnered with Endsleigh to develop a bespoke insurance policy that is specifically designed for you while partaking on our tours. We are working together to ensure you have adequate Insurance for your tour and to provide complete peace of mind. The policy is available to UK and Non-UK residents and will cover trips in the UK, Europe and Worldwide.If you are in the process of booking an STI tour or have already booked you may want to consider what level of insurance protection you have in place in case the worst were to happen. As a customer of STI we would always recommend you purchase adequate and fit for purpose travel insurance. Unlike many travel insurance policies, the STI policy provides full cover for activities such as marathons and triathlons.

Taking out your travel insurance at the time of booking your trip is a really good idea as cover for pre-departure cancellation starts from the policy issue date. This means you’ll have cover to recoup your costs if you have to cancel your trip for an insured reason such as illness or serious accident preventing you from travelling.

We believe that enjoyment and safety are equally important when travelling with Sports Tours International, It is therefore one of our terms and conditions of booking that you have adequate travel insurance in place before you travel with us.

You can purchase insurance at any point up until your departure date, however we strongly recommend that you book it when you book your tour, so that it will cover you in the event of insured reasons for cancellation such as illness or an accident preventing you from travelling.

You will be given the opportunity to add insurance to your package with us at the point of booking your tour, if however you wish to add the insurance at a later date you can speak to our team who can add this to your package. Should you have any issue please email us at to request cover.

This is the first time I have used Sports Tours and I am really impressed. The efficiency, the friendliness, the off-the-cuff vital advice all made this toughie as enjoyable as it can. Few companies have retained their ethos since covid and this is one of them.

The organisation from the Sports Tours team was amazing from start to finish – every member of staff from the airport team, mechanics, organisers, drivers and drink stop team could not do enough for us all and they never stopped smiling! Please pass on my thanks to everyone! All 8 of us finished (somehow!!) and if we are ever stupid enough to ride it again we will be using you guys to book.

For 3 years, through cancellations, lockdowns and multiple flight cancellations, Sports Tours International have remained responsive and professional – all staff and especially yourself, Vicki, very helpful and efficient, and the organisation and hotel set-up was first-class, I’d not hesitate to book with Sports Tours again.
