Wildlife tours in Bali

Bali has a variety of beautiful landscapes and wildlife to enjoy, but going on these wildlife tours always brings with them an element of risk. Snorkelling, for example, could lead to injury if the proper precautions are not taken.

One vital step in preparation for a trip to Bali - regardless of the itinerary - is to get adequate travel insurance. Having travel insurance that covers you for the types of activities you plan on doing, like water sports – can help in case of emergencies. You don't ever want to pay for medical bills or damages out of pocket, so protect yourself with reliable coverage.

There are a number of popular tours and activities to enjoy in Bali such as:

  • Snorkelling Tours
  • Hikes through the Balinese jungle
  • Rainforest horse riding

Of course, before booking a travel insurance policy, you will want to make sure that any activities you have planned are covered under the policy before buying. To do this, simply check the policy wording (which you can do after getting a quote).

If you are taking part in more dangerous or risky activities, then you may need to add an extra premium to your policy which is done by taking out one of our three extra activity packs.
