Travelling in pursuit of adventure is an exciting way to see the world and add to your life experiences and skills. However, when you are travelling with the specific intention to engage in adventure activities such as winter sports, not only are you opening yourself to the normal travel dangers and disruptions, you are also inviting a whole new class of unforeseen circumstances which can quickly ruin your trip if not kept in check.

The way to keep the dangers and risks of winter sports under control when you travel is to have specialised winter sports travel insurance in place before you leave. Insure and Go offers Winter Sports Travel Insurance is designed to be as inclusive as possible, so that all you have to worry about is your technique.

Features of Insure and Go Winter Sports Travel Insurance

Insure and Go has a list of 90 activities which are covered under their winter sports travel insurance and to be protected by this cover, the option must show on your policy schedule. Without the winter sports cover upgrade to your Insure and Go travel insurance, you will not be covered for any claims directly or indirectly related to winter sports.

Winter sports travel insurance is part of the adventure travel insurance package from Insure and Go, which includes cover for trekking in the Himalayas, scuba diving, white water rafting and hot air ballooning. The 90 activities included in the winter sports upgrade allow you to be covered automatically for free and dependent children are included on your policy too.

Your Insure and Go travel insurance includes cover for unlimited medical expenses incurred overseas and gives you 24 hour access to insurance assistance wherever you are. Adventure travel can also be more expensive because of the specialised equipment which is often required, but you don’t have to worry about your travel insurance blowing the budget, because cover with the winter sports travel insurance package from Insure and Go can be just $27.
