South Africa Travel Insurance

South Africa is quite literally a world within a country. The endless sandy beaches around the coastline, the inland deserts and wine lands, plus the exciting game parks like Kruger National Park with the fascinating Big Five on offer, are just some of the attractions on offer. The modern and cosmopolitan cities with their endless shopping, dining and entertainment experiences, make South Africa a great destination. However, when visiting this vibrant country there are some things to think of to ensure your peace of mind. South Africa is also a great location for a golfing holiday, so make sure you’re covered with golf travel insurance before you go.

According to the South African media, medical costs are sometimes up to five times higher than those in other countries and while on the whole medical services are excellent, it is essential to take out the right medical travel insurance cover.

Adventure Travel Insurance

Besides the obvious attractions, South Africa also offers many options for the adventure traveller. Whether cage diving with great white sharks, bungee jumping from incredibly high bridges, or white water rafting, ensure you have the right cover for your adrenaline rush.

Theft is a common crime in South Africa, so besides always keeping your camera and mobile devices in a safe place, also ensure that you have adequate cover in the event of the worst happening. Bear in mind, however, that this kind of loss might be covered by your home insurance.

Whatever your plans, by ensuring you have the right travel insurance cover, you can have a great holiday in South Africa with total peace of mind.
