The Extreme Sports and Activities add-on is an Optional Benefit that travellers looking to partake in adrenaline-pumping activities can leverage to customise and craft the most suitable travel insurance policy with DirectAsia. Available for individual travellers, this Optional Benefit ensures that you are covered when participating in both non-extreme sports and activities, as well as those we deem as high risk.
As an insurance add-on only available with an annual policy, it guarantees that your insurance protects you from unfortunate incidents and injuries sustained while having fun with specific extreme sports and activities. Whether you are hiking, mountaineering, or scuba diving with a licensed guide or participating in extreme contact sports like rugby, this insurance add-on ensures that you are fairly covered and your travel adventures are enjoyed to the fullest.
So, if you would like to live a life filled with thrills and excitement, you can consider opting for a travel insurance that covers extreme sports.
