Jet skiing

Jet skiing is common in South East Asia, the Pacific Islands and even on a cruise. Here's the lowdown on what's covered and not covered on your TID policy when you're on a jet ski.

We are aware of a lot of scams on tourists hiring jet skis in Thailand. Make sure you check the condition of your jet ski before you go on it, as some companies will paint over damage with a paint that washes off in water so when you return it you'll be faced with a bill for the damage.

What's covered?


  • Obey any local water safety rules, laws and requirements

What's not covered?

  • racing;
  • professional sports, ie, you are receiving a wage, salary or appearance fee for training for or participating in the activity;
  • you, a member of your travelling party intentionally and recklessly placing themselves in circumstances, or undertaking activities which pose a risk to their personal safety (except in an attempt to save a human life);
  • loss, theft or damage to watercraft ;
  • damage to sports and leisure equipment while in use;
  • any search and rescue expenses; and
  • medical expenses in Australia
  • personal liability - damage you cause to someone's property or if you injure someone while on a jet ski.

This is a brief summary of cover only and does not include the full terms, conditions, limitations and exclusions. Read the PDS before purchasing.
