Exploring Snowmobile Insurance Options
When people rent a snowmobile, it’s unlikely that the coverage on their personal auto or homeowner’s insurance policy will extend to the rental. On the other hand, current sled owners should have a snowmobile policy that offers this protection. These policies typically provide some level of liability coverage, which includes injuries or property damage sustained by others resulting from an accident the rider causes while operating the sled.
However, the liability limits on these policies can vary widely. If the rider is involved in an accident, the available coverage may be insufficient to handle a larger claim. An injured party could sue the operator, and possibly the rental company as well, to recover any excess amount. The financial consequences could be devastating for both parties.
If you operate a snowmobile rental company, you can’t always count on the renter to have a personal insurance policy that provides adequate protection. Therefore, it’s imperative to offer coverage to renters if they need it. As you’ve probably discovered, this type of insurance is hard to obtain because of the substantial risk exposure.

You’ll have one less thing to worry about as you enjoy your snow-covered adventure.
Scenarios Where Snowmobile Rental Insurance Comes to the Rescue
Some of the typical claim situations involving snowmobiles include:
- An operator, while traveling at a high rate of speed, loses control and strikes another sled, resulting in significant injuries to the other operator.
- A snowmobile rental company fails to maintain its sleds properly, which contributes to an accident with injuries and property damage.
- If on a guided tour, the rental company’s insurance may provide extra coverage to the rider if the damages exceed the limits of the rider’s policy.
In these situations, a liability insurance policy will cover the property damage and medical bills incurred by injured parties, as well as monetary damages awarded via successful personal injury lawsuits. It will also pay for the expenses associated with mounting a legal defense, such as court costs and attorney fees.
Please note that XINSURANCE will not provide workers’ comp for employees of snowmobile rental facilities.
