An injury may have a bigger financial impact than you’re expecting. The average individual health insurance deductible is over $4,000. Add in copayments, coinsurance, and all of the other expenses— like a damaged kayak your personal cost of a wreck may leave you in a frustrating position. With protection from Buddy, you can worry less about the cost of an accident and focus on the paddle ahead.
Answer a few questions (don't worry, it's way shorter than your average BuzzFeed survey).
