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 and restrictions that might not properly cover you on your adventure holiday. At Snowcard we offer specialist adventure travel insurance which is tried, tested, personalised and tailored to suit your activity holiday.
With standard travel insurance, many 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 standard travel insurance will leave you underinsured.
With adventure travel insurance from Snowcard, you can rest assured that as one of the longest-running specialists in activity holiday insurance, we truly do understand your needs. Our policies are designed to respond in a crisis and you have access to emergency assistance 24/7 wherever you are in the world with International Medical Rescue, who have more experience than general insurers in dealing with adventure travel emergencies in remote worldwide locations.
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.
Snowcard policies have been avaialble to adventure travellers for the past 30 years. We have a longstanding and close working relationship with our underwriters and together we adopt a pro-active approach to understanding the specialist needs of each and every client as an adventure traveller. We are dedicated to proving the best adventure sports travel insurance possible for everyone.

Why Buy Adventure Travel Insurance?
If you are planning adventure sports activities on your holiday then standard travel insurance will not fully cover you.
Whilst many standard policies say they will cover some hazardous activities you will be better off using a dedicated specialist for adventure sports like rock climbing, scuba diving and mountaineering because of their more specific policy wordings and claims handling service based on experience of managing sports injuries.
If you don’t have specialist adventure insurance then you may find some expenses might not be covered, particularly for search and rescue or helicopter evacuation.
Here at Snowcard we offer dedicated adventure travel insurance designed to respond in a crisis and is based on over 30 years of experience in claims management for adventure sports travellers.
