Edinburgh, United Kingdom (PressExposure) July 03, 2009 -- People are increasingly seeking out the thrills and adrenalin rush of an adventure holiday and activities such as zorbing and bungee jumping are becoming more popular - even on a standard break. What holidaymakers don't realise is they may not be covered under a standard travel insurance policy and should be comparing travel insurance providers to make sure they are taking risks with the right insurance in place, warns Insurancewide [http://uk.insurancewide.com/], one of the UK's premier insurance comparison sites.
So before you embark on your next activity holiday - whether it be climbing Mount Kilimanjaro or white-water rafting in New Zealand - take some time to look at your travel insurance policy and compare different options.
Skiing is a common winter break and maybe not classed as 'adventure' as such, however in most cases it still warrants specialised insurance - a quick search will allow you to compare the differing policies for this type of holiday. If you suffer a fall, treatment in some of Europe's most exclusive ski resorts could really add up, so it's worth making sure you are covered. If you fancy trekking in Nepal or maybe climbing some of the world's most stunning mountain ranges you will have many stories to tell - but you don't want them to be of how much you ended up paying out as a result of an injury.
Even if you're more of a fan of relaxing on the beach, you may have been drawn into trying a fun activity such as water-skiing or scuba-diving on the spur of the moment, without giving your travel insurance a second thought. After all this is what holidays are for - enjoying new experiences that come your way - however if you arekeen to try a new activity, check and compare travel insurance policies to ensure you aren't leaving yourself vulnerable if something were to happen.
When you compare travel insurance [http://uk.insurancewide.com/insurance/travel/] you may be tempted to tick 'no' to the list of activities you will be undertaking to take down the cost of your policy. Yet for peace of mind and the flexibility to travel somewhere a bit different, or try something new on your usual beach holiday, it's extremely important to make sure you have the right travel insurance in place.
