CHOICE Travel Insurance Buying Guide
DID YOU KNOW?
Many policies don’t cover risky activities such as motorcycle, moped riding, skiing, parachuting, scuba driving or surfing. Make sure the policy you choose covers you for your holiday destination and the activates you’ll be undertaking. Don’t just pick insurance that’s the cheapest.
