Talk about dredging up the past.

Finally found a link in one of my back up files. I have used this company, they seem to still be in operation. Fees and coverage looked good but thankfully, can't tell you about their back up service.

I understand this is way too late for those asking in the thread however I hope this helps in the future.

Hazardous Sports Rider

Optional Hazardous Sports Rideris available for the adventurous traveler. This Rider adds coverage for the Amateur sports listed in the following exclusion for an additional 20%.
Injury sustained while taking part in the following activities:

1. Amateur Athletics or professional sports or athletic activities, except this does not include Amateur sports or athletic activities which are non-contact and engaged in by the Member solely for leisure, recreational, entertainment or fitness purposes unless such sports or activities are otherwise excluded by this provision; and
2. mountaineering where ropes or guides are normally used; and
3. aviation (except when traveling solely as a passenger in a commercial aircraft); and
4. hang gliding, sky diving, parachuting or bungee jumping; and
5. snow skiing or snowboarding, except for recreational downhill and/or cross country snow skiing or snowboarding (no cover provided whilst skiing away from prepared and marked in-bound territories and/or against the advice of the local ski school or local authoritative body); and
6. racing by any animal or motorized vehicle; and
7. spelunking; and
8. subaqua pursuits involving underwater breathing apparatus; and
9. jet skiing; and
10. any other sport or athletic activity which is undertaken for thrill seeking and exposes the Member to abnormal or extraordinary risk of Injury.

I was unaware there were so many exclusions to Travel Insurance.

I have no idea what number 7 is but I'm not sure it's legal in most European countries except France.
