Why Standard Travel Insurance Including Watersports Is Not Always Suitable
When buying water sports insurance remember that standard insurers will not necessarily cover what they deem to be more hazardous water sports activities, particularly if white water is involved. Many general travel policies will only cover the lowest risk sports and limit or exclude cover for search and rescue, personal liability insurance and equipment which are extremely important for any water sports enthusiast.
It's important to not fall into the trap of making price alone the only deciding factor when purchasing Kayak Trip insurance or canoe insurance
