Activities covered for free

on all 24/7 travel insurance policies

There are many people who go abroad these days who want to take part in more adventurous activities. Not all travel insurance policies cover activities free of charge. At 24/7 we want to make sure that you are protected by your travel insurance. That’s why we have included a number of sports & activities at no extra charge.
