Protect your investment in wintertime fun and adventure
Some people settle in for a long winter's nap when the snow starts to fly. Not you. The shorter days mean it's time to fire up your sled and enjoy exhilarating rides in the wilderness with family and friends. Whether you prefer groomed trails or forging your own path through powder, your hobby allows you to reach places during winter only a snowmobile can. Make sure your prized sled is properly protected so you don't have to suffer cabin fever in the event of a claim. Safeco specializes in covering most makes and models of sport, touring, and regular snowmobiles, so talk with a local Safeco agent about the right policy for your lifestyle.

What Your Snowmobile Policy CoversYour mandatory snowmobile insurance requirements will vary depending on where you live. Of course, Safeco policies are written to satisfy all state requirements, so talk with a local independent agent to learn about mandatory insurance levels in your area including:
Protection for your sled
Comprehensive coverage helps pay for repairs or replacement if your snowmobile is stolen, vandalized, or damaged in some way other than a collision. This coverage also protects you against loss or damage from flooding, fire, falling objects, wind, and collision with an animal.
This coverage helps pay for repairs to your snowmobile for damage caused by an accident regardless of who is at fault. So you’re covered if your snowmobile is hit by or collides with another object.

This helps pay for hospital bills, medical expenses, and other costs related to an accident you are responsible for that injures someone other than a guest passenger. This coverage is the amount available to other people in the event of an injury. Since even relatively minor snowmobiling accidents can incur significant medical costs, having enough bodily injury liability is important for your protection. Talk with a Safeco agent to assess your risk.
+Guest Passenger Liability-Guest Passenger LiabilityGuest Passenger Liability
Specifically covers medical expenses for a guest passenger riding with you on your snowmobile. This does not include your spouse, or other household family members, who are already protected under your medical coverage. Though this coverage is optional, it's highly recommended if you like taking friends out for rides.

+Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist (UM/UIM) Coverage-Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist (UM/UIM) CoverageUninsured/Underinsured Motorist (UM/UIM) Coverage
