  • The Impulse Bungee Jumper and Hazardous Sports Insurance

    Filed Under: Blogging
    Author: Blog Writer
According to a recent study, one in three Britons impulsively try out risky and adventurous activities such as bungee jumping and white water rafting when traveling abroad. If the decision to participate in an extreme sport was impulsive, the traveler probably did not purchase additional hazardous sports coverage as part of their international travel health insurance plan.

So when should you purchase the plan? After all, a vacation makes you do crazy things! The first thing to do is to take an honest look at yourself. If you are the adventurous type, or have enjoying doing something like this in the past, look at the possibility of adding the rider to your international travel insurance.

Also consider your destination: If you think you’ll spend a lot of time doing cultural activities such as visiting museums, you might not need the extra insurance. If you’re going to be busy meeting clients all week long, and your idea of unwinding is an HBO movie with a can of beer, you don’t need the extra insurance.

If you decide to purchase the extra cover in your international travel insurance, find out what it covers and what it does not. Ask any number of questions if you have doubts about insurance coverage.
