We all love going on holiday, beautiful scenery, hot weather, and a lot of other things we do not get at home, but for the golfer going away it can be something really special. Maybe you are going to another country to play on a golf course designed by a professional or one that is part of the PGA series.
Whichever golf course you are going, it will certainly be a fantastic experience that you can tell your friends and family about for years to come. You have spent months planning everything out, but did you remember the golf travel insurance?
In most cases, the answer is that the golf travel insurance has been forgotten. This can be a major problem, especially if you have expensive golf clubs, as you may find that normal travel insurance does not cover them. This is because they only usually cover certain items to a fixed amount, and that is not usually enough to cover expensive golf clubs.
On top of that, you need to be aware that if you are flying then the clubs need to go in the cargo hold, they cannot be taken on as hand luggage. That means that your sacred clubs are going to be thrown around like normal luggage is, so you need to make sure they are well packed.
Due to the obvious design of gold clubs they can easily get damaged in transit, so you will also need to make you have them in a travel bag designed for use on airlines. Once you arrive at your destination and have collected you clubs, given them a full bill of health, then you are ready to continue to your destination.
Golf insurance will also cover you for theft and loss, but most of these specialized polices will also cover you for any damage while using them. Mind you, as they are so important to you, then you are likely to be treating them better than your family, but the insurance cover is a welcome bonus.
In order to find the best insurance for golfing equipment, then just do a search online, and check the first 20 results. Note down those that look the best, but do not go ahead and buy a policy. First of all check the online reviews for the sites in question, and when you have done that, go onto a few golfing forums and ask what the members think about the insurance companies that interest you.
Whether you are off to the Algarve for a spot of golfing in the sun, going to Singapore to play on Sentosa Island, or doing something a little weird like playing on the golf course in Death Valley, knowing everything is safe with your golf equipment will ensure that you have a more enjoyable holiday. Even though you have insurance, you should still ensure that your equipment is never let out of your site until it is back in the hotel room.
