Africa Travel Insurance
When travelling on holiday or business on the African continent, travel insurance is a vital part of planning the trip. Things do tend to go wrong on occasion and it is essential to plan ahead with adequate travel insurance cover for each eventuality.
African destinations are becoming increasingly popular for adventure sports. Whether it’s diving with the great white shark or bungee jumping from a bridge in South Africa, sand boarding in Namibia, or a motorcycling tour through the heart of Africa, it is essential to have the correct travel insurance cover. Even entry level policies cover some of the adventure options available in Africa. When it comes to motorcycling, the Backpacker and Standard policies give the best cover, while the Silver and Gold policies will give the same cover and conditions, but only for a 14-day trip, so always plan ahead.
Of course, not everyone is planning such adventurous activities. However, everyone does need cover for the possibilities of losing their laptop, camera or luggage while away on an African trip. Thought should also be given to an emergency occurring back home, making a need to cancel the trip at the last minute. Rather than lose all the money that has been paid out for flights and deposits, this gives the traveller the opportunity to rebook the trip and have a great time in Africa.
