Storm Chasing Travel Insurance

A few years ago, we were asked if we’d provide storm chasing travel insurance. At the time, we’d never even thought about it but when we looked into it, we couldn’t see why not; it looks very exciting and just the sort of crazy thing that DOGTAG’s customers get up to. In fact, we wouldn’t mind trying it ourselves- if somebody held our hand!

Why do I need Travel Insurance that covers Storm Chasing?

Although tornadoes are considered the most dangerous part of a storm cloud, they are not the most dangerous threat during a storm chase.  It is actually the challenging weather conditions that you are driving into and away from, that would cause the biggest risk.  Part of the excitement of the storm chase is the driving towards the storm, and into what could be a dangerous situation, which would not be covered under a standard travel insurance policy.   This is why we would suggest that anyone taking part in a storm chasing holiday, buys specific storm chasing travel insurance.

What am I covered for under Storm chasing Travel Insurance?

You would have all of the standard cover you would expect from a travel insurance policy, such as, cancellation, lost baggage and emergency medical cover.  But you would also have cover for the extra risks associated with storm chasing, such as heading into a dangerous situation caused by severe weather.

Can I get cover for my group under Storm Chasing Travel Insurance?

Storm chasing is a group activity, after all someone needs to hold the camera so you can be in the footage!  So, a group travel insurance policy would be an ideal policy for you and your storm chasing friends, ensuring you all have the correct level of cover, with the ease of all being under the same policy.
