Commercial General Liability Insurance Information

As per Wilderness Tourism Licensing requirements, all companies providing wilderness tours and/or rentals must have a minimum of 1 million dollars in Commercial General Liability Insurance coverage.

Below is a list of companies that offer Commercial General Liability Insurance for businesses that provide wilderness tourism activities and/or rentals: Because wilderness tourism activities are so varied, WTAY cannot advise which insurance broker will provide you with the best insurance coverage for your particular business. Each operation is evaluated on a case-by-case basis and costs depend on the type of activities and risk management plans that you have in place.

WTAY will continue to keep our members informed on insurance issues, services and programs.  As well, if we receive any insurance tips from our members, we will be sure to forward this information on to you.   We do advise that you shop around and negotiate for the best possible service. WTAY also suggests that members consult with an insurance company or legal expert on the proper development and presentation of waivers.
