Mountain Bike Holiday Insurance Why Do I Need It?
As we all know mountain biking is a high-speed high-adrenaline sport over rugged and rough off-road terrains and there are many associated risks. Unfortunately, collisions, crashes and accidents can happen while mountain biking and we see more claims from mountain biking than any other sport. These might include shoulder and arm injuries, back and head injuries and to be honest, pretty much every other part of the body! With typical claims exceeding £1000 travel insurance is vital but our mountain bike travel insurance covers not only injury but also search and rescue and repatriation which cheaper or general policies will not include.
With mountain biking travel insurance from Snowcard, you can enjoy your adventure with peace of mind and security that the UK’s longest established specialist provider of mountain bike holiday insurance insures you.

Why Use a Specialist Mountain Bike Travel Insurance Provider?
There are considerable high risks with mountain biking including collisions, crashes and accidents. Injuries to the head and upper limbs are a common occurrence but mountain bikers are susceptible to potentially expensive and life changing injuries.
A specialist travel insurance provider will cover you for injuries you sustain whilst mountain biking and importantly include search and rescue as well as repatriation. A standard travel policy will not cover you for most higher risk situations that will occur when you are mountain biking and it is unlikely the claims handlers will have the necessary expertise to deal with more complex situations in mountain resorts.
A specialist Snowcard policy will offer you the insurance protection you need. Snowcard cover has been tried and tested for 30 years with a claims service geared up to respond in a crisis including 24 hour assistance from International Medical Rescue.
