Our travel insurance policies offer cover for more than 150 activities, sports and experiences from skiing in Whistler, to hiking in Alberta and mountain biking in Montreal. We can also cover some water-based activities, including kayaking and white-water rafting. Some of these activities may require you to use specific safety gear or to be accompanied by a licensed guide, and other terms and conditions may apply – these will be outlined in your policy wording.
We offer two types of travel insurance plan – Standard and Explorer. While there are many activities covered on the Standard plan, those feeling extra adventurous may need to upgrade to the Explorer Plan. You’ll also want to read the exclusions section of your policy closely because some activities such as Mountaineering or professional sports are not covered.
Remember, if you’re not sure if something you’re planning on doing while on holiday is covered, please contact us before you organize your policy.
Please note that this information is a summary only. It does not include all terms, conditions, limitations and exclusions of the plans described. Please refer to the policy wordings for complete details of coverage and exclusions.
