So you’ve trained for months (or years!), chosen the race, booked your flights and bike box and now you’re looking for an all inclusive insurance to cover you for all eventualities.
We’ve spent a long time looking for a suitable insurance provider to recommend to our customers and finally we’ve partnered with Yellow Jersey.
Yellow Jersey Cycle Insurance 10% Discount using the discount code BBOX10
Insurance that covers you and your bike.
For the last few years, we have developed a partnership with Yellow Jersey. Their comprehensive policies and excellent customer service mean we’re happy to recommend them as we know they cover all the requirements of our riders.
Their policies are available as short-term and annual, so you can get cover for a single trip or, if you go away a few times a year, get covered for riding all year round which works out significantly cheaper. The two policies work in tandem to keep both you and your bike fully covered for your trip.
If you already have insurance…
A cycling specific holiday requires specialist insurance and you don’t want to find out the hard (and expensive) way that you’re not covered.
Be sure to check the fine print of your policy as you may not have the cover you think you have.
See a few reasons below why we choose to work with YellowJersey

If you think you already have travel insurance, make sure you check the small print. Many insurers exclude cover while cycling if it’s the main reason for your trip.
The majority of hospitals in European cycling destinations are private and will not accept a European Health Insurance Card.
