Good news - most backpacker policies will insure you for a whole host of sports and adventure activities. For example, an Allianz Assistance policy includes activities such as jet-skiing, glacier walking and mountain biking to name just a few.
Your policy wording will give you full details of what is and isn’t covered – just make sure you check before you commit to an activity.
Most winter sports won’t be covered in a standard backpacker policy, so be sure to add-on winter sports cover if you’re planning on skiing or snowboarding.
Don’t fall prey to the myths above; if you’re about to set off around the world, take advantage of Allianz Assistance’s worldwide protection and care.
