While some people enjoy the slow pace of an all-inclusive resort, others seek out adventure and extreme sports as a way to enjoy their vacation time. It’s important that travellers ensure they have the right travel insurance if participating in extreme sports or embarking on an adventure vacation.
In general, regular travel insurance covers participation in activities such as golf, cycling, baseball, swimming and skating. If you’re injured while participating in these type of activities, travel insurance usually covers medical fees in case of injury, emergency air transportation or compensation if your equipment is lost, stolen or damaged.
However, if you participate in a sport not covered by your travel insurance, you could be liable for paying the hospitalization, medication, ambulance and treatment fees. For example, if you participate in a marathon in the United States and break your leg, the average cost of treatment is about $7,500. Without the right travel insurance, these costs would have to be paid out-of-pocket.
If you’re planning an adventure vacation or participating in an extreme sport, be sure to choose travel insurance that fits your needs. Having the extra protection rarely costs more than just a few dollars — but could potentially save you thousands.
