Camping

From camping on the beach in France, tent-only campsites in Germany’s Black Forest, to campervan friendly campsites in Switzerland or head to Sweden for their freedom to camp wild policy.

If camping is not for you, there is a new alternative called ‘glamping’ – otherwise known as glam camping. It is the perfect blend of outdoor adventure and comfort in one. Incredible glamping accommodation allows you to hear the sounds and see the beauty of nature from the comfort of a warm place and without having to carry everything with you. On the other hand, with backpacking being a major trend with young travellers; camping seems like the most cost-effective option.

Like with any holiday, a camping holiday especially requires you to be covered with a travel insurance policy. And here at TopDog, we can help with just that.  We understand camping equipment is not cheap and if you were to lose or have it stolen or even damaged, it would be highly disappointing. So, to avoid disappointment, cover yourself with a TopDog policy and rest assure you won’t be out of pocket if something was to go slightly pear-shaped.

Why Choose Our Travel Insurance For Camping?

Whether you are camping in a European destination or on the other side of the world on an Australian road trip, you’re going to need travel insurance either way. And with a TopDog Policy your camping equipment will be covered. All we ask is that you are actively trying to keep all your belongings secure and that you are camping in a trusted, safe campsite.

All of our policies will also cover you for the following:

  • Camping in the Kruger National Park and want to take part in a trekking safari? If your answer is ‘yes’ then not to worry as all Top Dog’s policies will automatically cover you for 100 sports and activities.
  • We cover you for any unforeseen expenses, ranging from medical emergencies, lost luggage to delays and cancellations.
  • £10 million emergency medical expenses including air ambulance and repatriation, providing you with full peace of mind regarding pear-shaped related to any accidents you may have.
  • All our policies offer the option to include any pre-existing medical conditions you may have. Remember this is IMPORTANT if you are wanting to make a claim.
  • You’ll be pleased to know our single trip policy has no upper age limit and Top Dog’s multi-trip policy covers for ages up to 85.
  • A 14-day cooling-off period if you change your mind and decide the policy does not meet your specific requirements.

TopDog’s Best Policy to Choose for a Camping Trip

The answer to this question is that any policy can be used when you go camping, it just all depends on the duration and the specific needs. If your trip is less than 31 days in duration then our Annual Multi-Trip Policy will suit you (especially if you have a number of smaller trips planned throughout the year), or if your trip is no longer than 50 days then our Single Trip Policy will suit you even better. Or perhaps you’re going on a trip of a lifetime and backpacking around different countries on a budget; meaning TopDog’s Gap Year Policy would be your most suited option.
