Bungee jumping is an extreme sport and involves jumping from a large height relying on a large elastic cord that is attached to a large usually static object. Once the jump has been made the elastic cord continues to oscillate up and down until all of the energy has been dissipated. Bungee jumping can happen from buildings, bridges or even helicopters. It is very popular in the USA, Canada and New Zealand. Bungee jumping is extremely popular amongst backpackers. Although bungee jumping is a relatively new activity having only been around for 30 years it has evolved within that time from having only your ankles attached to the elastic cord to your body with a body harness. It is important to ensure that your insurance fully covers the whole bungee jumping experience as when you’re jumping from a great height the last thing you want to be worried about is your insurance policy!

It is also essential to ensure that all aspects of your trip are covered by your insurance policy, not just the bungee jumping, so always remember to read all the terms and conditions carefully. Some, for example, will only cover one jump so if you are brave enough to head to the top for a second go then make sure you have adequate cover. If you are unhappy with your policy you do have a 14 day cooling off period with any insurance policy you take out. If you don’t go bungee jumping every holiday it may be a good idea to look at a single trip or even single day or activity policy instead of an annual travel insurance policy.

What our Experts say

"Are you a thrillseeker? Many standard travel insurance policies will not cover more adventurous sports or activities. If you want to be able to bungee jump, or take a hot air balloon ride or just take part in a spontaneous activity that may be a little on the riskier side then opt for a travel insurance policy which includes or allows you to add on additional cover for more adventurous pastimes. That way you are more likely to be able to say yes!"

Things to consider when bungee jumping

It is very important to check the safety records of any bungee jumping site before taking a jump and also get a professional to check all your equipment and prepare you for your jump. Injuries from bungee jumping can as small as cord burns and headaches but as serious as whiplash and haemorrhages.

Although there are apparent high risks involved with bungee jumping many of the jump sites around the world have extremely good safety records, due to the fail safe mechanisms introduced to protect jumpers.
