Explorer Travel Insurance - Camel riding


Camel riding can be done in select places over the world, popular areas include Gran Canaria, Egypt, Lanzarote and even Australia! Camel riding tours can take place over a few hours or take a whole day, and most of the time visitors will be helped by a guide to ensure that they are able to ride the camel effectively. Camels are more difficult than horses to ride especially noticeable in the mount and dismount of a camel. It is important to ensure that before you begin your camel riding expedition you are fully covered by your insurance policy.

It is essential that you are covered for your camel ride whilst on holiday as well as all the other activities and aspects of your holiday, to ensure this you must remember to read the terms and conditions carefully. Don’t worry if you have just taken out a policy and realised it doesn’t fully cover you, as you have a 14 day cooling off period with any insurance policy you take out. It may be useful to consider, if you don’t go camel riding every holiday, to only take out a single trip policy instead of an annual 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 Camel Riding

The main injuries when camel riding are gained from falling off - including head and spinal injuries - so it is important to ensure that insurance companies cover this. However there is the possibility of gaining sunburn, sunstroke and muscle aches and strains. So consider taking along water, suntan lotion and cover up when going on a camel riding experience.

Although there seems to be a large number of risks, camels are generally docile creatures and camel riding can be a very exciting experience.
