Mountain biking is one of the best ways to explore new destinations all over the world. However, by riding a mountain bike in far flung places there is always a risk of injury, missing a flight or perhaps losing your luggage.There are many different elements that can affect your holiday, which is why we require all participants to have a mountain bike travel insurance prior to your trip.

There are plenty of different mountain bike travel insurances out there and from our experience we have found that Global Rescue is offering some of the most comprehensive cover for adventure sports and especially mountain biking. Therefore, we recommend them for your peace of mind and we are also proud to be a Global Rescue Safe Travel Partner.

As a Global Rescue Safe Travel Partner, we are committed to excellence in every aspect of your trip experience, especially when it comes to safety. Since 2004, Global Rescue has been the worldwide leader in field-rescue, evacuation, security extraction, and virtual health services. They offer two products suitable as a mountain bike travel insurance; Signature Travel Insurance & Global Rescue Membership. You can read more about these products below or on their website.
