Zorbing holidaymakers need to check travel insurance

Adventurous holidaymakers have required AXA to revise some of its travel insurance terms to include activities such as Zorbing and Octopush.

With the rise in popularity of experience-based holidays showing no signs of abating, the insurer is reminding holidaymakers that it is essential to have the right level of cover in place before undertaking adrenaline-rush activities.

For the uninitiated, Zorbing involves rolling down a hill inside a giant inflatable ball; the activity can be upgraded to Hydrozorbing by adding a couple of buckets of water.

Octopush is a form of underwater hockey, while Wind Tunnel Flying is a form of indoor sky-diving.

Tree canopy walking is self explanatory once the concept of the suspension bridge is understood and participants in Ringos are likely to be found sliding down slopes in giant rubber rings.

AXA’s lifestyle claims manager, John Dacey, comments: “Swimming with dolphins is so last year.”
