East Hartford, CT (PRWEB) December 18, 2008
Travel Insured International (http://www.travelinsured.com) , a leader in travel insurance, encourages skiers and snowboarders booking a winter sports vacation to purchase the right travel insurance coverage to protect downhill skiing activities often not covered by a normal policy. Today's adventure-minded skiers and snowboarders have strong interest in heli-skiing, off trail touring, extreme skiing away from conventional trails, racing and other higher-risk activities excluded from most travel insurance plans.
A Sports Coverage Option is available with all types of Worldwide Trip Protector plans, including Travel Insured's signature Worldwide Trip Protector comprehensive plan, Trip Protector Lite & Lite Expanded for budget-minded and family travelers, and Trip Protector Gold for luxury trips. The Sports Coverage option, offered for a $25 supplemental premium to your choice of Travel Insured plans, eliminates the normal sports exclusion. Clients who purchase and have paid for the option can engage in all types of skiing activities during their covered trip without fear of losing their policy's medical coverage in case of an injury.
Protect Prepaid Ski Passes & Rentals
Travel Insured's Sports Coverage Option also protects rentals, ski passes and equipment. Prepaid ski passes and ski rentals can be covered up to a combined $1,000 per insured if you miss a ski day due to a covered reason. Additionally, the option provides reimbursement of ski equipment rental costs needed to replace a covered skier's owned equipment that was delayed or misdirected by a common carrier.
Taking to the slopes is even more fun when you know you have excellent ski protection behind you. Enjoy your ski vacation all the more knowing that your ski trip insurance will cover equipment, and any unforeseen emergency medical needs that should be needed.
The same Sports Coverage Option can protect you from bodily contact sports during non-winter trips as well. Activities during your trip, including spelunking, skydiving, hang gliding, parachuting, caving and bungee cord jumping, all normally excluded from policy coverage, can be covered provided the Travel Insured Sports Coverage has been purchased and paid for. Golfers can enjoy protection of prepaid, non-refundable greens fees and golf rental equipment thanks to the Sports Coverage option, as well as the reimbursement of club rentals necessitated by a golfer's owned golf equipment being delayed or misdirected by a common carrier.
