About Ski Trip Preserver

We help keep vacation dreams alive.

You’ve been planning this vacation for months, maybe even years, and just before you leave, a family member is hospitalized. Or maybe your company decided to transfer you to the new office on the other side of the country. Or more likely, you’ve been keeping an eye on a threatening storm, or a disappointing snowfall in the Rockies, and it’s starting to look like your plans will be affected.

Fortunately, the Ski Trip Preserver vacation rental travel insurance plan includes trip cancellation & trip interruption benefits that may reimburse you for pre-paid, non-refundable deposits as a result of unforeseen covered events.

We understand that vacation travel is full of hopes and dreams, as well as expenses. When the unexpected happens, we want to help you recover your pre-paid, non-refundable deposits made towards the planned vacation along with the ability to plan again.
