Bungee Jumping

Bungee jumping is an activity that involves jumping from a tall structure while connected to a large elastic cord. When you jump the cord stretches and you fly upwards again as the cord recoils. The thrill comes from free-falling from the rebound.

Bungee jumping has become a popular extreme sport since it was first commercialised and now there are many popular locations around the world to jump from. We've listed some of the best here. 

We cover a huge range of adventure activities including Bungee Jumping with all our travel insurance policies.

 

  • Safety: The most common injuries from bungee jumping are dislocations, rope burn, back injuries and eye trauma.
  • Did You Know? It's called Bungee jumping because the cords used are similar to the strong elastic cords that have the same name.
  • The World Record: The highest commercial bungee jump in the world is 233m off the Macau Tower in China.
  • James Bond: The James Bond film GoldenEye featured the largest bungee jump ever performed at the time in 2002.
