One in 10 holidaymakers have suffered an adventure sports injury.
Holidaymakers planning adventure sports or activities must check the small print of their travel insurance deals, esure has warned.
According to new research from the insurer, more than one in 10 holidaymakers have been injured while taking part in such an activity abroad.
However, less than three-quarters of respondents said that they would check their travel insurance deals to make sure they were covered, while 13% said that they would take part in an activity even if they knew their policy was inadequate.
Mike Pickard at esure advises holidaymakers to compare travel insurance offers to ensure that they are covered for everything they intend to do, “With a surge in the popularity of, and access to, more adventurous sports and activities at holiday resorts across the globe, it's crucial for holidaymakers to take out travel insurance and check what they're covered for. Have an accident without insurance and the medical bills could turn a paradise trip into a nightmare if you're not properly covered."
