Paragliding - covered?


#1

BNZ platinum insurance is great - we had to use when stuck in Bali and claim process was easy and good service, thanks. Paragliding is not on the exclusions list however I suspect it is not covered as could be considered an adventure sport? Hang gliding is on the exclusion list but it is on Airnz insurance exclusion list too however they DO cover paragliding. Thanks, hamster

@Hamster Fantastic to hear about your recent great experience with BNZ 90 day Platinum Leisure travel insurance! In regards to your Paragliding question - you are correct only Hang-gliding is outlined as an exclusion under our Hazardous sports or activities, however, it does note that the list ‘includes but is not limited to’.
We always recommend you call our BNZ Travel Insurance team on 0800 BNZ Travel (0800 269 872) to go through the eligibility questions and they will be able to confirm if you are covered in this instance. They will also record any activities such as this to ensure we have on file whether you are covered or not. Hope this helps and enjoy your upcoming travel!
