Our Snowshoeing Insurance policy options

Put simply, we offer three different policy options…

1. Travel Insurance

We provide a Sports Travel Insurance that includes cover for snowshoeing abroad for leisure or competition. The policy includes cover for medical and repatriation costs, trip cancellation and curtailment, plus more.

2. Travel Insurance Bolt-On

If you have an existing travel insurance policy in place with another provider, such as your bank, but it does not include cover for snowshoeing, we can provide a bolt-on style of protection for your trip.

3. Sports Accident Insurance

Our Sports Accident Insurance is designed to protect you whilst snowshoeing in the UK. The policy offers personal accident insurance and income protection. Get an instant quote for any of our policies online.

Why do you need Snowshoeing Insurance?

Despite snowshoeing being generally considered as a safe sport that is enjoyed by people of all ages, there are certain risks associated with it.

Snowshoeing is generally used as an individual activity or in conjunction with other winter sports such as skiing and snowboarding as it allows you to access more remote areas.

Snowshoeing is seen to be a low risk activity but like with most winter sports the risk of an injury is still present, so making sure that you have personal insurance in place to protect yourself is highly advised.
