Africa Travel Insurance

Africa has so much to offer the foreign visitor. This continent is home to a vast array of cultures and opportunities. Some of the most interesting wildlife in the world is found here, and there are different types of adventure activities on offer. You will not have to work hard to have a good time in this part of the world, but it is important to bear in mind that there will be risks associated with travelling. By choosing an appropriate travel insurance policy, you can have the peace of mind of knowing that you are covered should things go wrong.

Do you need Travel Insurance to Africa?

Even if you are only going to be in Africa for a short trip, it is strongly recommended that you purchase some type of travel insurance. There are many parts of the continent that are considered more dangerous than the UK, and there are the risks associated with travelling in an unfamiliar part of the world as well as engaging in activities that you would not normally partake. If something bad were to happen and you didn’t have suitable insurance in place, you could end up in real trouble.

One of the most important things that you will need insurance for during a trip to Africa is medical care. In the UK we have the NHS, but free healthcare like this is not available everywhere in the world. If you have an accident during your trip, you could be in real bother unless you have adequate health insurance. Other things that you will want to be insured for during this type of trip include:

  • Repatriation back to the UK if required in the case of a  health emergency
  • Money to cover hospital expenses
  • Coverage for luggage and personal belongings
  • Personal liability coverage – this is protection for any claims made against you (for example, if you are accused of causing an accident)
  • Coverage in case you become the victim of a hijack
  • Coverage for cancellation, curtailment & trip interruption
  • Money in case you need to pay for additional accommodation
  • Coverage in the case of some type of catastrophe
  • Loss of money coverage
  • Loss of passport coverage
  • Money if your luggage is delayed for more than 12 hours

You will get all of this coverage and more with a DUInsure Insurance policy.

Peace of Mind During Your African Adventure

Most of us hope not to need to make a claim on our travel insurance, but things can go wrong and this is why it is so important to have this type of policy. Some people can get a false sense of security because they have never needed to make a claim on their travel insurance in the past. They may be tempted to skip it this time, but that can be a huge mistake. The fact that you have not needed to make a claim in the past does not make it less likely that you will need to do so in the future. By having a policy you buy yourself peace of mind.
