Bungee jumping, white water rafting, mountain biking, cycle touring, scuba diving, scooter riding, trekking, camel riding! There’s over 200 covered adventure sports, work, study & volunteer experiences that you can try while you’re away.
First, check out the list of all the sports, work , study and volunteer experiences that can be covered (also found in detail in Section 8 of the policy wording).
Then, when you’re buying your policy, add all the activities you plan to try on your trip. Just remember that you won’t be able to make changes after you buy your policy.
Check the policy wording carefully for any specific requirements related to the adventure sports, work or other activities you’ll be doing; e.g. you may need to be qualified/licensed or be with a professional qualified/licensed guide or operator in order to be covered (see Section 8 – Adventure, Work, Study & Volunteer)
Adding some higher risk activities may also add a bit extra to the cost of your policy (for obvious reasons).
If a sport or activity isn’t listed on your policy, this doesn’t necessarily mean that you can’t be covered if you want to give it a try during your trip. So how do you find out if it’s covered? Easy!
Choose carefully the first time (otherwise you’ll need to buy a new policy to cover your higher level activity).
When you’ve listed your activity correctly, if something goes wrong while participating, the cover that may be available includes:
We're pretty sure we've thought of most of the activities and experiences our adventurous travellers might want to try, but if what you want to do isn't listed, just contact us and we'll confirm if it can be covered or not.
There may be specific exclusions and conditions that apply depending on what you'll be doing. You'll find these in Section 8 of the policy wording where we tell you what is not covered while participating in an adventure sport or activity. Also, be sure to read the General Exclusions for other scenarios and expenses we don’t cover.Of course always read the full terms, conditions and exclusions in the policy wording so there’ll be no surprises if you need to use it.
