Ask Our Experts: What are your tips on travel insurance for outdoor activities?

One of the greatest benefits of travel insurance is peace of mind. You don’t need to be an extreme adventurer to benefit from travel insurance, and we can offer various policies based on the types of activities you’re planning to experience.

Basic travel insurance plans often cover mishaps like lost luggage or delayed flights. Obtaining coverage for medical emergencies may require a more comprehensive plan or additional policy.

Ski vacations are a good example because they involve a perfect storm of conditions, so to speak. There are hard costs involved — lift tickets, equipment, accommodations — so naturally you’ll want to protect your out-of-pocket investment. Then, whether you’re a seasoned skier or a first-timer, there’s the risk of injury or illness, plus the possibility of inclement weather, which is why many policies offer specific terms for skiing and other outdoor winter sports.

Other “soft” adventures such as snorkeling, hot air ballooning and caving can appeal to travelers of all ages and abilities. In case of injury or lost equipment, you may choose an upgraded level of insurance to ensure your claims are processed and approved.

And remember, travel should inspire you to push beyond your comfort zone! Maybe you didn’t plan on whitewater rafting or jet boating, but once you see others in action the temptation will be too much to overlook. Just give us a call and we can discuss various plan options.
