It is recommended that additional Travel Insurance be effected for all players, coaches and officials when traveling on overseas rugby trips connected with the club. Note that general travel policies may not extend to medical or related expenses when playing rugby, so a tailored policy may be required. Travel Insurance does not provide medical insurance or repatriation expenses in the event of injury sustained by a player overseas.
Travel Insurance policies generally provide high limits of medical expense coverage (the Rugby AU sports injury policy limits medical expenses to $3,000 per injury and does not include coverage for illness) as well as other covers such as baggage, money, loss of deposits, cancellation of travel, emergency assistance and repatriation, etc.
When sourcing or procuring travel insurance separately it is important the policy does not exclude injuries arising from playing/training Rugby. We can assist clubs with a Travel Insurance policy which compliments the existing Sports Injury coverage and does not exclude injuries resulting from Rugby.
