Whether it's called bungee or bungy jumping, be sure you're covered before you leap.
Bungee jumping – when it comes to adventure sports, there’s nothing that will give you a bigger adrenaline rush! If you’re planning to unleash your inner daredevil, find out how our policies may help you just in case things don’t go to plan.
Travel insurance is designed to include cover for many types of sports and activities, including some high intensity ones such as bungee jumping. There are many reasons why you should consider travel insurance. For example, if you were to suffer a severe injury while bungee jumping, and you’re not covered, you could be in hospital recovering for days, meaning a sky-rocketing medical bill that will cause you added pain in your back pocket.
Under World Nomads plans bungee jumping is considered a Level 1 activity. This means you can be automatically covered on both the Standard and Explorer plans. However, you must be with a professional, qualified and licensed guide, instructor or operator when going bungee jumping.
You can always upgrade your cover for a range of other activities and sports. You must select the activities (listed as Level 2 and 3 in Section 8.1 of the PDS) and pay any additional premium at the time you purchase your policy.
Some of the key benefits that you may be covered for (up to the policy limits) include:
We want you to have an amazing trip filled with adventure, and so we’ve designed our plans to cover more than 150 activities, sports and experiences, including bungee jumping and other high-intensity sports.
The most common injuries from bungee jumping are dislocations, back injuries, eye trauma and rope burn. While that might seem worrying, our policies can help with medical costs and evacuation if you suffer an injury whilst bungee jumping and need to seek medical treatment.
Our policies can also help if your bungee jumping adventure is cancelled by the tour provider due to unforeseen circumstances such as extreme weather and you’re left out of pocket.
We offer two plans for Australian Residents – Standard and Explorer. Each policy provides different levels of coverage depending on what you need:
Depending on the level of cover you choose, our policies may cover you for the following (up to the policy limits):
Travel insurance is not designed to cover everything so understanding what’s not covered is important. There are several situations we can cover you for, but there are also some we just won’t cover.
These include, but are not limited to:
Note: don’t forget to keep all receipts and written reports to support your insurance claim.
This is only a summary of cover and does not include the full terms, conditions, limitations and exclusions of the policy. You should read your PDS in full, so you understand what is and isn’t covered. That way there won’t be any surprises if you need to use it. If you have any questions, please get in touch.
Traveller tip: if you’ve already arrived at your overseas holiday destination and you forgot to buy travel insurance before leaving Australia, don’t panic. You can visit the World Nomads website at any time of the day or night to purchase a policy.
