Common Injuries whilst Quad Biking
Quad Biking is an extreme sport and thus carries with it many risks of injuries and even fatalities. For this reason, Travel Insurance is essential, and sometimes literally life saving, if you are considering partaking in the sport when on holiday. As Quad Biking is an all terrain activity, there is the risk of being thrown off your Quad Bike if it hits a pothole or some other bump in the road. Quad Bikes can also be difficult to handle and can overturn easily.
Accidents and fatalities have been known to occur when a person has lost control of the bike and suffered a collision with another object. As they are not designed to carry more than one person at a time, riding with or as a passenger can also increase the risk of the bike toppling over. When using a Quad Bike, always make sure you are wearing a helmet to protect yourself from injury. Be aware of the dangers in and risks inherent to the sport whenever you are Quad Biking on holiday.
Quad Biking Equipment
Two things are necessities when Quad Biking: the Quad Bike itself and a helmet. You should never, ever go on a Quad Biking trip without wearing a helmet. Additional protective gear would be a good idea too this gear may include gloves, a jacket, padded clothing and protective (sun) glasses.
It is important to purchase Travel Insurance policy before you leave the country. If it’s just going to be one trip, you will be all set with our Single Trip Travel Insurance policy. Those who plan to do more than one trip a year might want to look at the Annual Multi Trip Travel Insurance policy.
