Good Neighbor Insurance (www.gninsurance.com and dev.gninsurance.com) agents understand the importance of having adventure sports coverage while overseas. Most travel plans do not cover extra sports coverage. Yes, the average travel insurance, which Good Neighbor Insurance provides works exceptionally well wherever you go outside your home country. But if you are planning to do sports while you travel like scuba diving, surfing, flying a private plane, jet skiing, kayaking, mountain biking, windsurfing, or any other adventure sports it is best to have travel insurance that includes these activities.
There are a couple plans that include these sports activities already packaged into your travel insurance and there are other travel plans where you can add their sports rider for an added premium.
