Summer Adventures Around the Corner, But Risk Lurks Too

Summer is here and it’s the perfect time to experience the great outdoors with activities like jet skiing, hiking, and off-roading. It’s a time to relax, get outside and go adventuring. But what about the risk?

With over 77% of the travel market in the UAE accounted for by vacations, the draw to find new adventures and see the world is only expected to grow. Every year, according to the World Travel & Tourism Council, outbound trips from the UAE are forecasted to rise from 2015’s staggering 3.5 million. In fact, a 3.8% rise is predicted annually. From London to the Maldives, there’s no better time to zip line, base jump or skydive like summertime.

But what about the risk?

Why Get Insured?

As with anything, there is a degree of risk with activities that get the adrenaline pumping. From the United States to the far reaches of Asia, each country has their own set of standards and monetary systems. Medical and dental costs vary from country to country but expenditures can add up quickly, no matter where you are – even at home.

According to The National Electronic Injury Surveillance System (NEISS), over 4 million injuries have resulted from seven of the top extreme sports in the world. With the highest levels of injuries occurring being seen in skateboarding and snowboarding accounting for 227,127 major injuries. Unfortunately, nothing comes without risk. Even things that may seem routine can carry hidden potential to create issues. From boating to bungee jumping, all of it can be dangerous and lead to unforeseen issues.

Sometimes life hits us like a ton of bricks, leaving us with monetary loss, injury or worse. Where it’s a case of wrong-place-wrong-time or making a simple mistake, it can happen when we least expect it and can be devastating for you and your loved ones.

Fortunately, it’s not all doom and gloom, there is good news. You can ensure a stress-free vacation by covering yourself and your trips and activities with comprehensive insurance. When you get insured, you mitigate that risk with a policy that covers anything that you need it to.
