Question – I am looking to do mountain biking and hiking, which both are under 14,000 feet / 4267 meters, while I am on my trip with friends this summer. Do I need extra adventure sports coverage on my travel health insurance for these activities?
- Most low-level activities or exercises do not require extra adventure sports coverage on your travel medical insurance.
- However, you will want stronger medical coverage on your travel insurance, https://www.gninsurance.com/travel/sports, for activities with a higher risk. Examples of these adventure sports would-be white-water rafting, SCUBA diving, or trekking at a high elevation.
- A good rule of thumb to know if an adventure sport is a higher risk is if the general public is doing that adventure sport. If they are, that usually means the adventure sports is not a high risk.
Question – I am going on a trip for 10 days but only going to be ziplining for 2 of those days. Is it possible for me to only get adventure sports coverage on my travel medical insurance for those 2 days?
