Whether it's called bungee or bungy jumping, be sure you're covered before you leap.
Bungee jumping is truly the height of adventure! Standing on the edge of the platform, feeling the wind blowing on your face, the tightness of the ropes around your ankles – and the tightness in your throat and stomach as you prepare to jump! But before you do, follow our tips and make sure you’re covered.
Depending on your Country of Residence, all bungee jumps are covered on both our Standard and Explorer plans. However, it is a special condition that you must jump with a professional, qualified and licensed guide, instructor or operator, otherwise you will not be covered.
If you're a Brazilian resident: sorry, we cannot cover any bungee jumping on any plan.
We offer two plans – Standard and Explorer – each of which offers different levels of coverage. It is up to you to choose what plan has the right level of coverage to meet your travel needs and that matches your specific bungee jumping plans.
You can’t upgrade your policy after the cooling-off period so choose carefully when considering purchasing a policy. Check out your policy wording and contact customer service if you’re unsure what your cover includes.
World Nomad’s travel insurance offers cover for these key benefits, up to policy limits:
If you suffer a bungee jumping injury or accident on your jump, our emergency medical coverage may cover you for emergencies that require:
If you need medical treatment, it’s essential that you get in touch with our Emergency Assistance team as soon as possible so they can support you.
You might be bungee jumping in a canyon far from medical assistance, and our policies include coverage if you need to be evacuated to a medical facility.
Having an emergency in a foreign country can be overwhelming but buying a World Nomads policy means you’ll have access to our 24/7 Emergency Assistance team. Our Emergency Assistance team can help with a range of services in whatever part of the world you’re traveling, can speak multiple languages and they’re available 365 days a year.
If your bungee jump is cancelled or interrupted due to an unforeseen event, you may be able to recover your additional travel expenses. This includes if your jump is affected by a natural disaster, or your destination is affected by an extreme weather event.
Note: keep in mind that all plans are different depending on the plan chosen and your Country of Residence. Terms, conditions, limits, and exclusions apply. Read the policy wording carefully to choose the right plan and/or adventure sport option for your trip. If you’re not sure about anything, contact us.
While we can offer coverage for bungee jumping, there are also things we just won’t cover. These include, but are not limited to:

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 policy wording 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.
