Kitesurfing Holiday and Travel Insurance

Kitesurfing is a thrilling and highly satisfying activity, even in the roughest conditions. Although widely practiced across most of the UK coastline, it is also a very popular “holiday sport”. Seasoned kite surfers know all about the idyllic beaches of Tenerife, Mauritius, Sri Lanka, Fortaleza or Cape Town also known as the “Mecca of Kite surfing”.

As satisfying as Kite surfing can be, it is also a dangerous sport, especially for the less experienced surfers who underestimate the “forces of nature” in play. Dealing with kite surfing accidents close to home is a complicated affair, doing so abroad, is a completely different story. Most holiday resorts benefit solely from private medical service providers (which can be extremely costly even in the cheapest of places). So, getting the right care in case of an injury, regardless of the gravity, can become a real-life nightmare.

We at Kites and More know all about the highs and lows of the sport and encourage all kitesurfers to take great caution when preparing for a kite surfing holiday.

So, if you are planning your kite-holiday of dreams make sure to prepare accordingly by covering yourself under sports travel insurance. Whether you’re an amateur or semi-professional off on a sports holiday or competitive event abroad, a sports cover is an absolute must for protecting your income and your peace of mind.  Although most insurance providers will offer a comprehensive cover, there are fair few scammers out there, so make sure to inform yourself before making any financial commitments.

Despite being a water sports retailer, Kites and More also benefit from a team of seasoned local and international kite surfers who know the ins and outs of the sport they love as well as where and when to (safely) practice it. As such, to facilitate your search, we sincerely recommend a number of trusted insurance providers and cover types.
