Why Should I Insure?
It is actually part of the terms and conditions of your booking (section 13)
Insurance gives you peace of mind that you will not be out of pocket should something untoward happen.
Nowadays insurances cover you for covid 19 or other illness that mean you are unable to travel. Very handy indeed as it takes the worry out of the run up to your trail.
“I’m Kiwi it’s not my thing bro”
This applies even if you are a Kiwi, travelling with NZ. No one is bullet proof, even with the best will and intention something can strike out of the blue and you are unable to travel.
Over the years we have had so many things happen to our customers before they even set out on the trail, that were out of their control.
- New hip operation
- Diagnosed with cancer
- Head butted by a cow
- Covid 19 or Flu
- A relative gravely ill/ died
- Cancellation of flights by airline forcing rebooking at much higher rates
All of these were way out of their control and certainly out of our companies control.
Our boutique horseback adventures have small numbers of riders to give a more personal experience. Most riders generally book a year in advance of trails. Once you have booked a saddle, we close off the bookings. If you cancel within 80 days of the trail, it is highly unlikely we will be able to fill your seat again.
What’s the Go Bro?
As a business we have prepared for the trail.
Accommodation is paid, our taxi driver has already made contact, horses are shod, food is prepped and ready. Often times horses are already transported to a trail waiting. All of these expenses have been laid out. Insurance means that your cancellation does not cancel other riders holidays.
Where will I Find Insurance?
Here are a couple of examples of companies providing insurance cover that our riders have utilised:
