Travelling is a tricky business. Between booking flights, accommodations, trips, and tickets, people around the world spend thousands of dollars on a week away from home. But what happens if something happens to interrupt your trip? What if a flight gets cancelled, or you get sick and can’t go on the trip? Travel insurance is an often-overlooked but necessary addition to any trip, regardless of destination.
We are a start-up organization aiming to provide support and general knowledge about travel insurance—particularly regarding extreme sports and skiing. These activities require the transport of expensive equipment and can pose hazards to your health; if your baggage is lost on the way, that’s several hundred dollars wasted; if you suffer a concussion, that’s a big bill you must pay out-of-pocket. We want to help traveling athletes make smart, informed trip decisions: that starts with travel insurance.
