Travel Insurance Coverage for High Fliers

Travel insurance can cover many types of air activities. These policies will likely include coverage for common sightseeing vacation activities, such as zip lining or hot air balloon tours. Some of the policies that can cover these activities may also have coverage for thrill activities like skydiving, hang gliding, and bungee jumping. Certain travel insurance policies can even cover pilots flying an aircraft, as long as they are legally licensed.

Coverage for Air Activities

What Can Travel Insurance Cover?

Travelers who buy travel insurance for air activities are often concerned about injuries. Specifically, these travelers want a policy with the Emergency Medical and Medical Evacuation benefits.

Emergency Medical can cover the cost of treating an injury during an insured trip. If the injury requires immediate transportation to a hospital, Medical Evacuation can refund those expenses. In addition to coverage for a medical emergency, policies with Trip Interruption coverage can reimburse a traveler to return home and for their unused trip expenses.

What to look for when buying travel insurance for air activities:

Travel insurance for air sports or activities can vary significantly from policy to policy. Activities that can be covered by one policy, may be specifically excluded from the next. For this reason, for travelers who plan to partake in specific air sports or activities, it’s important to check a policy’s certificate for a list of excluded activities before purchasing. When buying travel insurance for air sports or activities, Squaremouth recommends at least $50,000 in Emergency Medical coverage, and $100,000 in Medical Evacuation coverage.
