Certain sports and activities are EXCLUDED from cover. If a sport or activityappears on the EXCLUDED list, you are not covered to partake in this activity under any circumstances under the terms of this cover.

WINTER SPORTS NOTE

You can add the Winter Sports cover uplift to any DOGTAG policy for an extra premium. This uplift covers you to engage in winter sports. However, you should be aware that individual winter sports are categorised Sport, Sport+ or Extreme according to risk, as are non winter sports.

This means that as well as selecting the Winter Sports cover uplift, you will also have to ensure that you choose the correct sport category for your particular winter sport.

For instance:

Skiing & Snowboarding - simply to go skiing or snowbaording, you would need the Winter Sports uplift but since these sports fall into the SPORT category, when you go for a quotation, you should simply choose SPORT and the Winter Sports uplift.

Ski Mountianeering - Ski mountaineering falls into the Extreme category so as well as choosing the Winter Sports uplift, you will need to select Extreme.
