"This collaboration is a natural one for Intact Insurance. Our company is a benchmark when it comes to insuring recreational vehicles like snowmobiles and quads, and we're the official insurer of the Fédération des clubs de motoneigistes du Québec (FCMQ) and the Fédération Québécoise des Clubs Quads (FQCQ) ," Mr. Desautels added.

"Finally," he said, "we wish to take this opportunity to remind sledders and ATV users of the importance of riding on marked trails and obeying all signage and speed limits, to keep this activity safe and fun for everyone."

An insurance and roadside assistance "combo" for snowmobiles
By choosing My Snowmobile and me® or My ATV and me® to insure their recreational vehicle, people who enjoy off-road sports get solid protection at a very competitive price.

What's more, by insuring their snowmobile against the damage it may suffer (section B), they will get another important benefit: a roadside assistance for snowmobiles* program , available 24/7, at no extra cost.

This program, one of the most complete on the market, entitles the snowmobiler to three service calls per year amongst the following :  towing within a 100 km radius, battery boosting and gas delivery (up to 10 litres). Added to that are additional services like personalized trip itineraries and a concierge service.
