Travel Insurance

As a current professional cricket player, you are covered by a 365-day a year travel policy, that includes travelling abroad.

Any travel insurance requirements for overseas pre-season cricket with your county/region should be covered by your Club.

2024 Information:

1. There is a £250 excess on all non-medical claims.  If your potential claim falls below £250 we will be unable to process a non-medical claim.

2. Please remember that booking your holidays/flights with a credit card gives you another level of protection and it is always worth doing this.

3. Since 2021 the PCA cannot guarantee the travel policy, through Allianz, will respond to cancellation cover due to the “known issue” that is COVID. You should not expect short term notice bookings to places with known issues to be covered.

As current players you are covered by a 365-day a year travel policy. You are covered to travel abroad and play professional cricket for up to 12 months. Any travel insurance requirements for overseas pre-season cricket with your county/region should be covered by your Club.

  • There is a £250 excess on all non-medical claims.
  • Allowed to make multiple trips.
  • Cover includes married partner and children where applicable.

Please note that unmarried partners of members and/or officials, who are not their lawful spouse or legally recognised civil partner, are covered by our travel policy, but only whilst accompanying the respective PCA member/official unless they reside at the same address and then full cover is offered.

If you need a doctor or dentist while away please pay for treatment there and then. Once you have returned, please call Ali Prosser on 07769 880888 or email for a claims form.

  • Please note all claims must be logged within 28-days of the occurrence.

Similarly, X-rays, scans and emergency physiotherapy should also be paid for at the time and only be carried out after a doctor’s referral (if not, your claim may not be paid on return to the UK). Full receipts should be kept in all instances. Ongoing multiple treatments whilst overseas should be reported to Ali Prosser for the claim to be logged on a claim form.
