Travelling to a major sporting event? Here are 3 things to consider

What with flights, tickets, and the possibility of extending a trip, a holiday assembled around a major sporting event like the Rugby World Cup is already shaping up to be an expensive one.

An added expense travel insurance may be, but it can hardly be interpreted as unnecessary. Here are three ways in which it can make an essential contribution to your travels if things go south:

Health – You might not be risking injury yourself as a spectator, but with visitors descending on one city from all over the globe, there is ample opportunity to become unwell.

Medical expenses on travel insurance can be easily arranged depending on your overall health and age, and given the costs of treatment abroad shouldn’t be neglected. Even if you have found it difficult to secure this insurance in the past, speak to a broker or specialist provider about protection to suit your circumstances.

Tickets – Some insurance policies will cover the cost of tickets to events if you have to cancel your holiday or are unable to make the trip in certain circumstances, but only if the tickets are legitimate. Don’t run the risk of being turned away from an event by making sure your tickets are purchased from an authorised website and keep receipts and records of your payments in case you do need to make a claim.

Gadgets – If you’re hopeful of capturing incredible shots with an expensive camera or have brought along a tablet to view maps or translate menus, you need to make sure they’re included on your policy. Gadget cover isn’t standard, but for an additional cost can be added. Prices vary but could be well worth it if your equipment is worth a lot of money; check the “single item limit” on the added features to make sure it’s enough.
