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 or adventurous water sports activities which have higher associated risks of injury. Many general travel policies will only cover the lowest risk sports and limit or exclude cover for search and rescue or personal liability insurance 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 water sports cover.
