Travel Insurance General Rules

Travel Insurance is designed to cover you for unexpected emergencies that occur in the course of an adventurous holiday. Travel Insurance generally doesn't cover you for certain things:

1. Medical conditions that exist before you travel
Cost incurred due to the condition are not covered, you can still take out travel insurance for other purposes (robbery, sports, injury, etc)

2. Deliberately putting your life in danger
Travel Insurance will not cover you if you put yourself in extreme situations where survival or injury is highly likely. Chasing polar bears while drunk will not be covered.

3. Claims involving alcohol or drugs
Insurance companies use this as often as possible in order to not pay a claim, from their point of view - when drunk you take extra risks, your not in control - kept to sensible levels and look after your valuables before a night out.

4. HIV or STD's
Not covered - so safe sex is doubly important.

5. Illegal Activities
If you're involved in an activity that is illegal in the insurance company will not cover you.

Remember - all corporations exist for one purpose - to make money - if they can get away with out paying they will - so read your policy carefully, behave sensibly and carefully, indulge in adventurous activities in a responsible way - always check your policy for more information.
