    Angling & Fishing Travel Insurance

    Travel Insurance Saver policies through nib will cover fishing adventures provided the participants are not intoxicated while they fish or travel into International Waters from the country that they are visiting.
    When we go overseas we want to enjoy what the locality has to offer, this could be a fishing adventure, but not without a good travel insurance policy. As Australians, we love the ocean, and with plenty of us love to fish – when we are on holiday this is no different.
    There are so many good fishing spots around the world, and a lot of them are in Australia.

    Extras

    Travelling by Fishing Boat

    Some of the general exclusions include travelling into international waters in anything other than a cruise ship. You should always check with your guide whether or not you will be crossing into international waters. Entering international waters will automatically exclude you from receiving travel insurance coverage. 

    Fishing is generally a harmless exercise to be enjoyed with friends and strangers alike. There are many different types of fishing and angling. If you are fishing with a professional charter for work, your travel insurance coverage will be affected. 

    The same applies to professional fishing competitions, if you receive a medical injury while you are participating in a sports fishing competition, your travel insurance coverage will be affected. No cover for professional competitions applies to all policies.

    Fishing travel insurance 
    If a pre-existing medical condition is exacerbated by your taking part in a fishing expedition, your medical travel insurance may be inhibited. You should always pack the appropriate safety equipment when you go fishing, this means having a pair of plyers handy to remove hooks if necessary. If you are travelling on a boat you should always ensure that your boat has enough fuel, that you have life vests, oars, and that your radio receiver is functioning.

    Just because you have purchased travel insurance, does not mean that you can throw caution to the wind, or sea. You should always take due care to ensure your safety will fishing or angling.
