Road, camping, off-road and outdoor insurance for the adventurous

Road, camping, off-road and outdoor insurance for the adventurousWhen we talk about insurance in general, we aren’t just talking about the policy document you’ll be holding in your hand when it comes up for renewal. Ask any insurance company or broker and they will only be too happy to tell you that you must also play your part in underwriting and securing your property and life. What does this mean then? You need to adhere to company advice and/or recommendations on how to secure your goods from burglaries. You also need to take note of and comply with their safety recommendations, particularly where driving is concerned.

Covering all base camps

A number of our previous posts have been centered on outdoor activities and extreme sports. So this post won’t be much different. It focuses mainly on the initiatives that you should be taking to cover yourself adequately when outdoors or on camping trips, and both on or off the road with your truck or SUV during outings.

Factoring in good insurance in these scenarios always has safety as a main theme. A useful starting point here is Light Bar Report which gives recommendations on new LED light bars and how you should go about making a personalized choice for your vehicle.

You also need to ensure that your heavy duty vehicle, built for both conventional and off-road use, is, indeed, roadworthy. This advice is non-negotiable. And if you are going away on a camping trip, make sure that your home is fully and properly secured.

Camping-wise, make sure that all your gear and utensils are adequately insured (and never under-insured). You can do annual valuations of your small, moveable property when your insurers give notice to renew your domestic and car insurance policies. They generally give you more than enough time to conduct your honest valuations. They will even enroll a qualified assessor to do this for you, if this is necessary.

While travelling long-distance in your (roadworthy vehicle) make sure that you adhere to the speed limits. Do not deceive yourself into thinking that you can quite literally get away with murder by driving faster, simply because the roads appear to be quiet. Out in the countryside, wild animals may inadvertently be crossing the road out of your line of sight. Also make sure that you and your passengers have all buckled up.

Having a great time in the company of others

Speaking of companionship, you may well have a penchant for adventure and have a natural urge to try things out on your own. This is not a good idea. Accidents can happen. So whether hiking along trails or just camping, please make sure that you enjoy communing with nature with at least a small group of likeminded and hardy companions.
