Insurance for US
« on: March 13, 2019, 07:38:20 PM »
I'm heading over to the Don Matthews CZ World Championship in California next month & need to sort insurance for when I'm racing.
The only place here in New Zealand that provide cover is AON, now for the scary part, they want $1500nz for the day & a half coverage which is roughly half the cost of the airfares
Any suggestions of who to try for something a bit more managable

The insurance I need is medical incase something was to go wrong. The second motocross is mentioned things get either very expensive or we don't have a policy that will cover you
I contacted ridersurance in the states who specialize in finding coverage for racers but they are only able to do annual policies where I'm only there for 1 weekend of racing

medical insurance in USA IS very expensive if you dont us it. If you have to use it it can save your life and your bank balance, just ask Toby Price

Doesn't sound excessive at NZ1500 if they are covering you for ambulance rides including in the air and hospital treatment. I assume extended travel insurance would cover any medical needs for return air trip.

long shot, Is it a FIM sanctioned event ? if it is M.A can arrange insurance, I used it in 2017 to compete in the world emergency services games at Glen Helen, was pretty reasonable price too from memory.
