Do I Need Insurance Before Going to Burning Man?

If you’ve attended Burning Man before, you’re likely pretty well versed about what it’s like to be a “burner.” But going to Burning Man is not just about being a burner. In fact, you need to make many provisions before you go, especially when it comes to your insurance needs.

Comprehensive Car Insurance
Burning Man is a “city within a city” that’s erected in Black Rock Desert, Nevada. And, to get there, many people who can’t afford private planes (which is most people) get there by driving a car. With that many vehicles on the road at the same time, an accident is bound to happen. For that reason, you need comprehensive car insurance — it’s not just reserved for people with brand new cars. Rather, comprehensive car insurance will cover your car from back to front — if there’s any kind of damage, you’ll be covered for it. What more can you ask for?

Renters Insurance
As the name indicates, this is only for renters. Let’s say you’re renting a house, and you have all of your precious belongings in there. Whether you have a little or you have a lot of things, those things need protection, especially if you’re going to be away from home for an extended period of time (like you will be when you spend your time and your money in Black Rock Desert for the week).

Whether something simple (like a robbery) or something tragic (like a fire) happens, renters insurance will cover the damages and losses. Best of all, comparatively speaking, renters insurance costs a lot less than any other type of insurance out there — on average, about $20 a month is all you’ll spend to ensure that your personal property is protected. Make sure you talk to your agent to ensure that you’re getting the best renters’ insurance for your needs — remember, no two plans are alike!

Different Types of Health Insurance
So now you’re out in the desert, “burning” and absolutely enjoying yourself, when all of a sudden, you’re struck ill with a horrifyingly high fever. You need to get to a doctor, and fast. But, needless to say, you don’t want to spend tens of thousands of dollars on your treatment — which is why you’ll need health insurance. Fortunately, thanks to the Affordable Healthcare Act (also known as Obamacare), there are many types of health insurance available for all of your needs.

RV Insurance
A recreational vehicle, or RV, is the perfect thing to bring to Burning Man. You’re going to need protection from all of the elements that are out there in the Black Rock Desert, and besides, it’s much easier to enjoy Burning Man after a shower and a good night’s sleep.
