According to the company, the arrival of summer in the northern hemisphere has meant an increase in people heading outside for entertainment (easing of lockdown restrictions has also helped, presumably), and now that people are allowed out again, they are trying out new sports and activities. Thus, MAPFRE has improved its adventure travel and sports travel insurance policy by increasing the number of activities for which it will cover its clients.
Conditions do apply, unsurprisingly; for example, clients must undertake these activities in designated areas. Coverage is also available for those that are taking part in competitions and training for the same.
There remain some activities that are excluded from MAPFRE’s travel insurance offering, such as mountain climbing over 3,500 metres, and trips that are for scientific exploration purposes.
In order to encourage uptake of the extended travel insurance policy, MAPFRE has offered a 10-per-cent discount on the cost of the policy between June and September.
