  • What’s covered when skiing or boarding?
    Not all adventures are covered, as some of you love pushing the limits when away from home. When getting a quote, make sure to let us know what adventure(s) you're doing while on your trip. Once you've selected your plan, simply enter the activity under “Search sports/activities” and we'll provide you with a quote right away. Paying the extra in premium for your adventures before you travel is better than having to pay part of your claim because you were not properly covered. For further info, click here.
