What are the benefits of a Team Travel Insurance policy?
Team Travel Insurance policies are a good way of making sure everyone in the group has suitable travel insurance in place ahead of a trip. And with the whole team under one policy, you can focus on more sporting and less admin!
To get the ball rolling (excuse the bun) for a Team Travel Insurance policy, all you need to do is note down the group members names, dates of birth and as many other bits of information from your own club spreadsheet, share it with us, let us know the type of protection you’re after, and pop down a card for the payment. And we’ll complete the rest. Just be sure to let us know if there are any specific sports extensions or equipment cover that you need!
What’s more, you don’t even have to have everybody’s home addresses. We can assign cover and deliver everybody’s pack to one address for the group leader to distribute. After that, each person can log in and update their policy with their own address and other personal details. Easy!
Can I buy my own separate Dogtag policy if I am travelling with a team?
Of course! We get it. Sometimes it’s just easier to sort your own policy out – especially if you have certain medical conditions that you wish to declare or if there aren’t that many of you travelling.
One thing we can do to make sure you’re still linked to the group in some way, is issue one person with a discount code that this can be distributed round everyone. That way, everyone receives the benefits of travelling as a team but each individual can take the time to review their policy and make sure it suits their own needs.
What am I covered for under a Team Travel Insurance policy?
Dogtag Team Travel Insurance policies offer the same protection as all standard Dogtag policies. For example, cover for trip cancellation, personal belongings, and emergency medical expenses. The only difference is that all team members can be listed under one policy, instead of having to arrange separate ones for each travelling member.
Now, if you’re travelling to partake or compete in niche or extreme sporting activities then you may well need to upgrade your policy to make sure you’re fully protected. We would always recommend that team members check their policy wording to make sure the activities they plan on doing abroad are included in the cover. The same goes for any equipment that may need protecting. If the cover you need is not included or you have any questions, just get in touch with us and we can talk through the most suitable policy for you and your team.
Can I still buy a Team Travel Insurance policy if there’s only a couple of us travelling?
Absolutely! As long as you’re not a family or a couple, you can still buy a Team Travel Insurance policy.
