Can you explain the different insurance terminology you use?

What is Personal Accident insurance?

Personal Accident insurance cover is a benefit that a member can claim if they are injured by themselves (e.g. falling off your bike, tripping up as you run) or by someone (e.g. a cyclist or vehicle collision into you) or something else (e.g. a branch falling on you whilst running in the woods). Compensation is paid from the insurers to the member claiming. The member will only pay the excess to activate the claim. You could incur significant financial losses as a result of being injured. Personal Accident insurance can help offset some of these unexpected expenses.

What is Public Liability insurance?

Public Liability insurance is defensive cover that protects a member if they cause an accident injuring or damaging someone else or someone else’s property. This only applies if the member is legally responsible for the accident. Compensation is paid from the insurers to the person pursuing the claim with the injury/damage.

What is Professional Indemnity insurance?
Professional Indemnity insurance protects British Triathlon coaches that provide advice or a service to their customers who are training towards a triathlon goal.

Do I have to be a member to take part in an event? How do I purchase a Race Pass?

Non-members are welcome at most events listed on our website. However, the event organiser will charge non-members a Race Pass fee to compete. Also, to win titles and medals at your Home Nation's Championships or to represent Great Britain internationally you must be a British Triathlon member.


A Race Pass can be purchased while registering and paying for a British Triathlon permitted event through an event organisers online entry system. It can also be purchased separately through the British Triathlon event search, on the website, where this option is not provided. Locate your event here.

Is commuting covered under my insurance?

The Public Liability policy does not cover commuting unless you are training towards a genuine triathlon goal, and are able to evidence the ride formed part of your training plan, such as a defined training log, and the route, the bike you were using, the clothing you were wearing and the event you had entered into for which you are training, Insurers would then consider each claim on its own merits.Alternatively this may be covered under your household insurance or if you have separate bike insurance this may be extended to cover commuting.
