Cabin confinement? Attacked by a squirrel? Bitten by a turtle? These are just a few of the most bizarre claims made on travel insurance from 2018.

Southern Cross Travel Insurance detailed the list here.

Just a few of our personal favorites from the list:

Other strange claims included, a customer who was bitten by a rattlesnake in the US, racking up a large medical bill for anti-venom and a long hospital stay worth $272,000.

While on the road in Europe, another customer hit a deer, severely damaging the rental car and claiming $1500 in insurance.

Another unlucky traveller required an electric wheelchair in the Pacific after injuring themselves.
