Each summer Good Neighbor Insurance, www.gninsurance.com/extreme-sports/ , provides travel and health insurance for sports teams on good-will assignments overseas. This year, we will insure soccer teams going to Japan, Mexico, Bahamas and the Czech Republic.
We also help individuals find sports insurance that covers their adventure sport. Travelers who bungee jump, jet ski, rock climb, sky dive, scuba, paraglide and do other hazardous sports need the protection of extreme sports insurance. You may want to watch our video at www.gninsurance.com/video-library.asp explaining this.
Sports insurance covers such things as:
- In-country hospital and doctor fees
- Medical evacuation
- The return of the body back home should someone die
- A bed-side visit by a friend or family member
Insurance companies have different exclusions for what they won’t cover. BUPA adventure sports travel insurance covers full contact sports, but not motorsports. ATLAS , www.gninsurance.com/extreme-sports/ , sports coverage is good for mountaineering and rope climbing because it has no height restrictions. PATRIOT EXTREME offers sports coverage for international trips from 30 days to 3 months.
Fees are conditioned by age, length of stay and the nature of the sport.
