Boat Insurance: What is Emergency Travel cover?

If you have to halt your voyage because either the vessel suffers insured loss or damage, or a crew member is injured meaning you have insufficient crew, this boat insurance option can pay towards the cost of emergency travel to get you and your guests home. In addition, if the problem occurs abroad, this cover can pay towards the travel costs of you sending out a crew to bring the vessel home.

You select what cover limit you require up to £5,000, and there is no excess for you to pay in respect of a claim under this cover.

There are various exclusions which apply to this option, such as if the vessel is easily repairable within a reasonable time, or where this cover option was not in force at the time of the loss.

This option is only available if you have also selected the ‘Vessel Loss or Damage’ option.

The Policy Booklet contains full details about how this cover operates, including any exclusions or conditions. Existing policyholders can download copies of the applicable Booklet for their policy by following the guide described here.
