(soorry I kn ow this has been done 1000 times before)
I used the search and it brought up almost as many links as using Google so apologies for starting yet another thread on the subject. Off to Marrocco for 10 days and will be running the Marrakech half marathon while out there. Anybody recomend some decent value holiday insurance that will cover us for this?
I've got health and travel insurance through Axa PPP - they cover for running events abroad, including marathons, as long as I am competing as an amateur. (I think for elites there is a different level of cover).
I'm an insurance broker (for my sins!) and one thing I would recomend is making sure you check the section about 'medical expenses' whenever you get quotes for travel insurance from anyone. With a lot of the online companies, you might think you're getting a great deal on price but when you check the cover for medical expenses you realise why. I looked at one recently that only gave a maximum payout of £250. This might seem ok but if you were to break a leg (for example) whilst abroad and were unable to fly home this would have to pay for all your costs, possibly including return flights, for as long as you're stuck there. As you can imagine, that's not going to stretch far, especially if you're there as a couple etc.
Worth bearing in mind!
