04 Nov Stay Safe: The Importance of Travel and Medical Insurance
Going on thrilling 4×4 rooftent adventures to remote mountain locations, safari parks, and off-road tracks is exciting. But being prepared for the unexpected is crucial. While renting a 4×4 with rooftent, we have your car insurance covered. But for your own health, safety and comfort you will need travel and medical insurance. For any of your adventures with us, we consider a travel insurance crucial.
We have partnered with SafetyWing to make it easier for you to book your travel and medical insurance before going on the road! Below we have outlined a few scenarios that you could experience where you would need a health or medical insurance.
Meet Our Adventure Seekers
Scenario 1: Unexpected Accidents
Meet Mark: Mark is a seasoned adventure enthusiast. He’s driving on a challenging route, and then goes for a hike in rough terrain. He then faces an unexpected accident and requires immediate medical care and transportation. SafetyWing‘s medical coverage ensures that a helicopter is being dispatched to retrieve Mark from his remote location. He receives medically necessary treatment and is being evacuated to the nearest high quality hospital. SafetyWing provides the help and support he needs during his adventures.
Scenario 2: Coping with Sudden Illness
Introducing the Hoffman family: The Hoffmans loves exploring the outdoors. With two young children, a 4×4 adventure with rooftent is the perfect holiday. While driving through a safari park in Kenya, Kirsten, their 8 year old daughter gets a high fever and needs immediate attention. SafetyWing‘s medical coverage is their safety net, covering expenses for medically necessary treatment at the nearby hospital and ensuring access to emergency care when she needs it most. Thus, immediate care kept her safe from an escalation with unforeseen health issues. If you are travelling with children, one child older than 14 days, but less than 10 years old, per adult, is included in the insurance without added cost.
Scenario 3: Luggage Theft
Say Hello to Emily and Tom: Emily and Tom are traveling in Kyrgyzstan. When they return to her vehicle after a nice hike, they find their car broken into and their laptop and iPad stolen. Their car insurance covers vehicle damage, but their SafetyWing add-on insurance covers their loss of electronic equipment.
Any of these scenarios could happen during your adventure. That’s why we are happy that we can offer SafetyWing insurance.
