Bungee Jumping Insurance
Imagine the wind rushing through your hair. Your cheeks being pressed back into your face. Your scream being drowned out as you fall. You cannot get enough of that rush of falling until the cable tightens and pulls you back up. The yo-yo effect.
You live for the jump. But did you know that if an accident happens while bungee jumping in a foreign country, your domestic insurance probably would not cover it? You need insurance to keep you protected from bungee jumping accidents or a bungee jumping injury while you are on vacation. Atlas Travel® insurance from HCCMIS can keep you covered for eligible injuries that occur while bungee jumping.
While many insurance companies charge extra to cover extreme sports, Atlas Travel insurance includes coverage for injuries that occur while bungee jumping abroad at no additional charge. With Atlas Travel insurance you would be covered in the event of an eligible bungee jumping accident or injury on your vacation. You do not want to find yourself in a situation that requires medical attention or emergency medical evacuation without insurance. Atlas Travel is an affordable insurance solution, and you can keep yourself covered against the high costs of medical care for covered injuries that could occur while you are bungee jumping. If you are traveling outside of the U.S., you will want to consider Atlas International® insurance. If you are traveling to the U.S. to get a thrill, Atlas America® is the medical insurance plan for you! So if you are considering doing some recreational bungee jumping on your upcoming trip, then purchasing Atlas Travel might be a great idea!
