Why we like it:
BUPA is one of the best policies for extreme sports travel insurance up to age 69 from most nations (Not available for travelers from the USA, Canada, Brazil, Thailand and Nigeria). It covers most recreational and adventure sports without an additional rider. And it has the option to add trip cancellation to protect your non-refundable deposits. It is also a great plan for TRAVEL TO THE USA.
We like that it pays 100%, has no copays and no deductibles, and has an unlimited medical maximum dollar amount. You can also pay in four currencies. And trip policies are available in multiple languages. (Multilingual staff assist customers in more than 20 languages.)
There is also an annual travel version of this plan that covers unlimited trips per year >>
Note: We recommend you also select the “non-medical travel benefits” option when purchasing this insurance.
- Most extreme sports included on policy
- Non-U.S. / Non-Canadian travelers up to age 69
- Covers 100% of most travel medical claims
- Covers “high-risk” activities and countries
Note: When you click “Buy Online” or “Get a Quote,” sometimes the online application form for this plan can take 3-30 seconds to load.
We apologize for any delay since the security connection and form is coming from the carrier’s site.
