White water rafting travel insurance

Going white water rafting is an exciting way to spend time exploring nature with friends or even strangers. Depending on the time of year and the complexity of the river it can be quite an adventurous sport so you’ll need adequate travel insurance.

All our travel insurance policies covers over 50 sports and activities, including white or black water rafting adventures up to grade 4. It’s important to note that not all courses are covered and so you’ll need to add extra extreme sports travel insurance to your policy if you’re setting off to ride the hazardous courses of grades 5 or 6.

As always terms and conditions apply, so check the policy wording for full details of these and the other activities we cover.

Why do you need travel insurance for white water rafting?

Whilst incredibly fun, white water rafting can also be a risky activity. Safety equipment issues, slipping overboard or wayward paddles can cause serious injury. It’s important to make sure you have a travel insurance policy that will cover you in the event of an accident or injury. We can have you covered!

We can cover your kids for free!

If you’re going away with your children, we can cover them on your policy at no extra charge, whether you buy an annual policy or single trip cover.
