If you’re heading off on holiday, you might just be planning to relax by the pool or play the odd round of golf. However, we know that a lot of our customers prefer something a little more active, and thats why we’ve teamed up with Columbus Direct to offer you military travel insurance that includes 150 different sports and activities as standard.
If you visit Rwanda, Uganda or their neighbouring countries you might well want to take up on the opportunity to see gorillas in their natural habitat. Gorilla treckking not only offers you the once in a lifetime chance to see the animals themselves close up, but usually includes a tour of the sub-tropical forest itself. Plus, the cost of your tour usually contributes towards conservation programmes to protect the area you are visiting.
Tandem Skydives are available in most countries, always offering a once in a lifetime experience but with some truly breathtaking views on offer depending on where you are travelling. Columbus Travel Insurance will have you covered for a Tandem Skydive for all the usual features on your policy, but excludes Personal Accident cover. Its worth checking whether this is available through your skydive school, as it can usually be purchased separately.
River Bugging is similar to white water rafting, but you travel individually on an inflatable raft through a downstream. All the correct safety equipment (helmet, buoyancy aid, wetsuit and flippers) is very important as you travel feet first with the aim of navigating yourself down the rapids, pushing yourself away from rocks and branches. You can take part in river bugging in the UK as well as abroad, and its available at most white water rafting centres. There is no personal liability cover included for River Bugging so make sure you ask if this can be bought separately.
Shark diving (caged only!)
Shark diving is certainly suited for the adventurous – you’ll have a chance to get up close and personal with the ocean’s top predators. Keeping safe within a cage, this is an opportunity to see the animals in their natural habitat, and even better, you’ll be fully covered with travel insurance from Trinity.
Elephant trekking is a once in a lifetime opportunity for many tourists across Asia, offering a chance to interact with the magnificent animals. If you buy with Trinity, there’s no need to worry about whether you’re covered, as Elephant trekking and riding is included as standard with all travel policies.
