Shipshaped Travel Insurance

Our new Travel Insurance Policy designed for sailors

Hands up if you’re worried that the cheap online travel insurance you’ve just bought for your family holiday to _____ (fill in your chosen destination) won’t be worth the paper it’s written on?

When you’re away from home, in a foreign country – whether it’s for work or for pleasure – the last thing you want to happen is to find your insurance doesn’t cover your airline going bust, or your teenager losing their passport (even though they only had it for the 5 minutes it took to get through passport control!).


What you really want is peace of mind that in the event of something bad happening, there is someone at the end of the phone who can help you (within reason – we can’t help entertain your kids on a delayed flight I’m afraid!).

Meet Sailaway, our new Travel Insurance, which is designed to give you that peace of mind!  It even has an optional sailing pack extension to help with those unexpected mooring fees following an accident!


We have been working behind the scenes with Aston Lark and Millstream Underwriting, a travel insurance specialist, to provide you with a flexible insurance policy designed to give you peace of mind.

As well as medical emergency, cancellation, curtailment, delay and lost and stolen luggage, you will also benefit from:



Cover for unexpected additional mooring fee charges following an accident & hire boat/yacht waiver excess cover in the UK/EU for accidental damage & theft.
