Sailing in UK waters

We appreciate many of you who sail, may not go further than UK waters, if you obtain an MPI policy for UK and Ireland, then there would be cover for certain aspects for example:-

  • Cancellation and curtailment when renting a boat
  • ‘Get you home’ cover if you fall ill or have an injury*
  • Personal belongings

*please note there is no cover for medical treatment in the  UK

Summer Seasonaire

Whether it's bar work, cooking, sailing teaching or other activities, we have the perfect summer seasonaire travel insurance for you.

Our summer seasonaire cover has no days limit within the insured period, it will cover the main elements on this page, for longer durations, plus of course working cover*.

Plus there is now cover for your liability when ski hosting, leading or teaching in a voluntary capacity and babysitting in a private capacity.

* There is no personal liability cover whilst working, as this should be covered by an employer and might be a good idea to check.
