She will be skiing in her leisure time. Is the World Nomads cover all she should need? Seems considerably cheaper than other insurance companies...

    Hi Kerri

    Katrina from WorldNomads.com here.

    Unfortunately, I cannot tell you if the cover available at WorldNomads.com will be all your daughter will need.

    All travel insurance plans will cover different things, so it is best to have your daughter read the policy wording carefully to make sure she understands what's covered, what's not covered, and any policy limits or conditions to cover. That way she can decide if the cover is right for her (and all of the things she'll be doing).

    The cover is different on all of the plans we offer, depending on your daughter's country of residence (which you don't mention here), so it is tricky to generalise on the type of cover available. You can see what's covered (per country of residence) here:

    Please make sure you check the adventure sport cover list to make sure your daughter chooses the correct plan to include cover for skiing and working holidays:
    http://www.worldnomads.com/travel-insurance/adventure-travel-insurance.aspx

    Some plans automatically include skiing, others do not (for example, depending on your country of residence, you might have to either upgrade the adventure sport coverage or buy a different plan).

    Our pricing is quite competitive as we don't pay large commissions to travel agents and we negotiate direct with our insurers to provide plans to suite a wide range of travels, working holidays and experiences as described in the full description of cover/policy wording.

    I do suggest that you contact our customer services team if you have specific questions about what's covered and not covered - you can reach them here:

    I hope your daughter has an amazing time. There is certainly lots of snow in Canada right now!

    All the best,

    Since the person is going to Canada it would make sense to apply for coverage from a Canadian Insurance company. Some benefits of going with local insurance providers include:

    Easier to file a claim and receive your money back

    Canadian insurers mostly set up direct billing so that you don't have to pay out of your pocket (as is the case with backpackers insurance)

    Comprehensive coverage and benefits (sports and all kinds of work included)

    Local branches where you can come and speak with a representative

    Sports related injuries are covered which makes it perfect for young people who want to enjoy their time in Canada.

    While it is true that dealing with a Canadian company may help during claim time, some of the US companies also have competitive prices, and are used to dealing with claims issues anywhere in North America. the arbetov site doesn't quote any american policies, but this Bestquote site does (and has all the same Canadian plans that Arbetov has and a few more too!)...
