While on vacation, many travellers try out new sporting adventures or extreme activities—bungee jumping off a bridge, white-water rafting or off-road mountain biking. But preparing for these adventurous activities involves more than simply packing. Many travellers fail to realize that injuries caused by these extreme activities can result in a serious financial burden if the proper travel insurance wasn’t purchased.
Although certain activities are covered by travel insurance, circumstances play a critical role in determining whether an activity is covered. Do your plans simply include a swim in the resort pool or are you planning to plunge into the sea with sharks? While both activities involve swimming, the risk of injury is certainly not the same and therefore different types of travel insurance would be required to ensure proper coverage.
When planning your vacation, make sure that you are scheduling activities that are covered by your travel insurance plan. Even better, you should speak to a licensed agent at SecuriGlobe Inc. to see what coverage is best suited for your vacation plans. They can help you find the right insurance for your dream getaway—even if it includes extreme activities!
