Winter sports like skiing and snowboarding are great fun for adrenaline junkies and families alike but do carry a high risk of injury when out on the piste, in the board parks or even stepping foot outside the front door as the snow and ice are a hazard to even the most balanced of us.
So taking in to account the above, ski insurance must be at least number two on your list when booking that fun filled ski holiday (number one being what resort to experience and have loads of fun in!). There is a lot of peace of mind that comes from having insurance (and is a requirement these days of the ski tour operator) as it lets you and your family or friends enjoy the whole skiing experience safe in the knowledge that if there is a medical emergency then you are covered for all eventualities.
Ski holiday insurance can be bought for a single holiday trip or an annual multi trip so before buying consider how many trip you will be doing that year. Insurance covers you for a multiple of eventualities from injury, rescue, piste closure, ski and snowboarding equipment, different types of activity and also for lost luggage and damage in transit.
Before you buy your ski insurance just double check and make sure it covers you and all your family and friends for everything you are going to be doing whilst on holiday and then you are safe in the knowledge that everything is taken care of and the fun can begin.
We do not sell ski trip insurance and we cannot advise on the correct insurance policy for you. There are many good travel insurance companies with excellent winter sports cover, but when looking ensure that the policy is in accordance with the holiday operator’s terms and conditions whom you are travelling with. Also, check that the policy suits you and your group’s activities.
NB – Please ensure that the ski insurance taken out is the correct insurance as some accommodation providers are very strict that any insurance policy taken out independently has to marry with their Terms and Conditions.
