Travel Health Insurance with bike cover!!

Just wanting standard travel insurance, no baggage cover, but with allowance to ride a 600cc motorbike for a month in morocco!! Help, if I have to trawl through much more small print I'm going to explode! Any ideas?

Many Thanks

Hiya

There is a company called Campbell Irvine that specialise in health insurance for people riding bikes abroad, and so it covers medical expences even in a bike accident. I dont have there contact details on me but if you do a search on this site i am sure they will come up.

Hey David

A year down the track and I am in a similar situation to you - how did you get on in the end?

Cheers

Check out the list of Medical Insurance providers in the Trip Planning section of the site as a starting point. Scroll down for the contact details. Club Direct looks good and has been recommended.

Good luck.
Susan

Hi there.

Another source to add to the list is Insurance Services of America. Their website is:

http://www.missionaryhealth.net/

They specialize in providing coverage for missionaries, but have a plan to suit just about anyone. They cover citizens from any country as well.

I used this agency for a two week motorcycle trip through Cambodia in February and they specifically cover motorcycling, as long as you are not racing. You can also get quotes online.
