Why Buy Travel Insurance Adventure Cover from Snowcard?
Although other insurers may include adventure sports travel insurance, be mindful that typically this will come with very low cover levels which could restrict you on your adventure holiday.
With standard travel insurance, adventure activities are not covered, particularly with packaged multi trip travel insurances provided free with bank accounts. Always take into consideration that the more adventurous your activity and the higher the associated risk, there is an increased likelihood that a standard travel insurance will leave you underinsured.

Tips for Getting the Best Adventure Travel Insurance
When it comes to buying adventure holiday insurance it’s important to remember that price alone should not always be the deciding factor, as the level of cover may not match your own unique requirements. Whilst our prices are competitive, we do appreciate that it can be difficult to decide which policy to take, especially when so many insurers offer adventure travel insurance as an optional extra and cover limits can look very similar. However, as we’ve already mentioned purchasing standard travel insurance can potentially leave you underinsured, especially when it comes to more adventurous activities.
All Snowcard policies are underwritten by Ageas insurance and have been for over 25 years. Their award winning service is not based on being the cheapest, or by avoiding paying claims. We have a longstanding and close working relationship with Ageas and together we adopt a pro-active approach to understanding the specialist needs of each and every client as adventure travelers.
