Overseas medical insurance policyholders are looking for more from their trips abroad, according to a travel writer.
Dan Hipgrave noted that it is important to take advantage of all the opportunities available when experiencing life abroad.
"When doing these kinds of activities you forget about your day-to-day problems. You just enjoy them, then when you go home from your holiday you are able to brag about them and tell all your friends about the things you can't even imagine you've done," he explained.
Meanwhile, a survey from Travel Alberta has revealed that hot air ballooning, skiing, white-water rafting, snowboarding and climbing are the five extreme activities people want to try before they die.
One-fifth (22 per cent) of respondents said they had never tried these because they are too afraid, while 28 per cent said experiencing something they have never done before is a key part of a good holiday.
Travellers should check their international health insurance policies before trying these activities to ensure they are covered.
