The One Thing Every International Golfer Needs
Posted by August 04, 2015in Insuranceon
Whether you’re heading to Scotland to play one—or all seven—of the courses at St. Andrews, or you want to take your game to the Caribbean and the Casa de Campo in the Dominican Republic, you’re going to travel across international borders. While the rules of the game remain the same, your insurance coverage is likely very different.
Did you know that most insurance coverage does not extend to foreign countries? Your golf vacation is not the time to worry about how medical expenses work in a foreign country. You can alleviate your concerns with Atlas Golf.
Just imagine you’re finally stepping off the plane in Australia to take that dream golf vacation and hit the links at Royal Melbourne. You’re waiting at the baggage claim for your suitcase and, more importantly, your golf clubs. But they never come.
Regular golf insurance covers the cost of your equipment, but we know paying a claim when you return won’t save your international trip. That’s why Atlas Golf also pays up to $500 per day for equipment rental. You might not be using your own clubs, but you’ll still get to enjoy that vacation as you intended.
Or how about that trip to Los Cabos, Mexico? You and your friends are going to finally play at El Dorado Golf and Beach Club. You’ve done the research and decided to go in July, because according to your research, they have an average of just one rainy day in that month. But while you’re there, they have a fluke rainy season, and there’s a downpour every day you’ve planned for golf.
Atlas covers that. Atlas Golf uses a “Misery Index,” charting the expected rainfall in many regions all over the world. If the rainfall exceeds that expected amount while you’re there and when you’ve planned to play golf, we will send you a check.
Atlas Golf was created to take care of unexpected precipitation levels that can dampen a golf vacation. And just like when you’re on the course evaluating your next shot before choosing your club, you should do the same before choosing which travel insurance is best for you.
There are many things to distract you from the game—the amazing scenery, the loud plaids sported by flashy golfers, or daydreams about quitting your day job to go pro. Don’t let your worries over the weather, your clubs, or an illness be another distraction. Trust Atlas Golf with your golf vacation.
