Questor Insurance, a vehicle hire excess and travel insurance provider, has created a new golf travel insurance policy to meet the needs of golfers during their golfing holidays abroad.

Designed to meet traveller’s particular requirements, the new policy has been introduced keeping in view of 4.2 million registered golfers in Europe alone, with around 750,000 Britons taking golfing holidays each year, according to the European Golf Association.

Besides providing cover for specific golf related expenses such as golf equipment and green fees to a pre-specified limit, the policy also includes cover for emergency medical expenses and personal money, passports and documents.

Commenting on the insurance policy, Questor Insurance CEO Andrew Lawrence said, "With 4.2 million golfers in Europe alone, scores of golfers will be combining their passion for travel with their love of teeing off at any one time.

"Questor’s golf travel insurance policy has been designed to meet the needs of this group, ensuring that the only thing they need to worry about on their golfing holiday is improving their handicap."

Currently offering insurance in three product classes, Vehicle Hire Excess, Travel Insurance and Excess Protection, Questor Insurance is an independent privately owned insurance intermediary that is authorised and regulated by the UK Financial Conduct Authority.
