Travel insurance

We are delighted to announce that we have worked with our insurance providers to ensure all those whom we select to represent England will have fully comprehensive travel insurance which covers competing, when they travel to the Europeans/Worlds.  Many standard travel insurance policies will not cover competitive sports and activities, so we are investigating the possibility of extending this offer to all EADA members who compete internationally.
