Renting a yacht for a few short hours is becoming quite a common occurrence and it is often from these short excursions that people think it is a good idea to rent for a greater period. Although this is great to do, there are a few factors that you will have to take into consideration; one of those factors is charter yacht insurance and when it comes to chartering a private yacht, many people who do not even realize that they need to have insurance for themselves.
Insurance is always recommended but there are some instances where it is more important than others; for example, if you were interested in chartering a private yacht for a weeklong trip, charter yacht insurance would be more important for you than it would be if you were only looking to charter a private yacht for a few hours. This belief is brought about by the fact that an insurance is arranged when the yacht is chartered.
Personal belongings and the renters require a separate travel insurance plan to cover themselves as the insurance already arranged was just to protect the craft and her crew members. In all probability, travel insurance will not be necessary but can you afford to take the risk of not arranging this important cover to protect yourself and your family.
There are many aspects to trip travel insurance including policies that will pay compensation should a trip be cut short or medical attention is required. The variety of cover is comprehensive some of which you will need, some you may not but there are certain factors that are important to include.
Accidental death is something that you will want as part of a travel insurance package because whilst most private yacht charters result in successful, safe trips, there is always a chance that an accident could occur. Accidents, although unlikely can be much more serious when at sea and delays can occur when medical assistance is required. Do not take it for granted that your travel insurance policy will include accident death cover and if it doesn’t, have it added.
As often as not, personal possessions are something that is often claimed for so you will need to make sure you travel insurance covers these to a high enough level. You will need to ensure the travel insurance cover for personal belongings will cover the cost of replacement as many items we carry with us are expensive and no-one knows if they could be lost, stolen or damaged during the trip.
When examining this type of coverage, it is important that you thoroughly examine the fine print as many insurance providers limit the amount of money you are able to be reimbursed in the event that your baggage gets lost, stolen, or damaged. Despite the possible amount of cover required travel insurance is usually good value and should not be overlooked to save costs.
