Travel insurance plans help cover your travel investment when traveling to participate in sportsman activities. A golf trip often has additional costs like course fees, concierge services, equipment rentals or additional baggage fees.

Travel Guard’s travel insurance plans can help protect your travel investment, so you have the coverage you need.

Can I get coverage for my golf cart?

No, unfortunately even with a Rental Vehicle Damage Coverage add-on, golf carts are considered an off-road vehicle meaning they are excluded from coverage. However, if you plan on renting a car around the area you’re staying, you may still take this add-on into consideration. 

Are there per item limits on baggage coverage?

Yes, it’s important to know that on the Essential and Preferred Travel Guard plans there is a limit of $500 for the first item and $250 for each subsequent item. On the Deluxe plan the limit is $1,000 for the first item and $500 for each subsequent item. Take this into consideration when choosing a travel insurance plan for your golf trip.

Reviews and Testimonials


“When we flew to Chicago last October, my husband’s bags were lost. We reported the loss to the airline and then to Travel Guard. Due to the close attention we got from Travel Guard, his bag was found and returned to us that evening before we started our cross-country “bucket list” train trip across the U.S. I don’t know what we would have done for three days without his bag! Thank you, Travel Guard! We’ll never make travel plans again without you!”
