Insurance will be one of the most important things you bring with you. Chances are, you won't need it. However, if you ever do, you'll be more than thankful that you have it. A broken wrist alone will set you back thousands of dollars; a broken back will be well over a hundred thousand dollars. But, as long you hook yourself up with some quality insurance before you leave the UK, you can avoid a lifetime of debt.
NOTE: Here at Season It Accommodations we always reccommend riding with a credit card in your pocket. If the worst happens and you do need medical attention, Whistlers Health Care Centre and Clinic require you to pay upfront in advance for any treatment. They DO NOT accept your insurance details as payment and will require you to pay by cash or credit card right there and then.
There are many different insurance companies out there. Each one is slightly different and will offer different coverage. You want to make sure that the coverage you choose will cover you while doing extreme sports, playing in the backcountry, and jibbing in the park. The cheapest policy out there is not likely to cover you for all your needs.
