Although Portugal and Spain are both very safe travel destinations, and cycling is statistically a very safe sport, it's important that you cover yourself for the unexpected by arranging Travel Insurance before you go.
Written by Fernanda Mateus
As world travelers and cyclists ourselves, we looked long and hard for a simple, inexpensive but broad covering insurance that would have us covered on our active travel adventures. The very first time we felt we should get travel insurance, we were already on our way and frantically hunted for a full coverage plan. We settled on World Nomads as we were able to easily buy fairly priced insurance online before we even reached our starting destination.
We were also able to increase the coverage during the journey to cover more activities and we were very happy with the service and have used them ever since! We also like that fact that they support local communities through their Footprints initiative and feel they are the best choice for active travelers and now recommend them to all our riders.
For all these reasons and since we have had many requests for active travel insurance, beyond our Crash & Theft insurance, we have added a simple form on our site where you can get a real time, no obligation quote. Safe travels!
