Insure yourself on your volunteering adventure!
|Just like at home, you can get in trouble in Africa and be in need of assistance. It is then good to know that you are well insured. Ecomambo offers, in partnership with World Nomads, a specialized travel insurance for people who like to do more than sit on a beach for two weeks. The travel insurance covers you anywhere in the world. In general it also covers more adventurous sports and activities such as scuba diving, horse riding, bush walking and rock climbing. Exactly which adventures World Nomads will and won't cover varies, depending on your country of permanent residence.
Why should I have a travel insurance?
What isn't covered?
A good rule of thumb is to remember that insurance is there for things that might go wrong and will not cover extreme risks such as:
You can still take out the insurance for other benefits but you should be aware that costs of treatments that you knew were likely or possible before you travel won't be covered.
Trekking across the arctic in a t-shirt is not conducive to picking up your pension
Apart from the risks that you take while off your face in a place that you aren't familiar with, you probably won't get your claim paid.
We know this is a little weird but if you contract STD's or HIV while you are away, these aren't covered. We are working with our insurance partners to review these exclusions.
