If you are going on a winter sports holiday, it is important to ensure that you have the right insurance in place, so that you don’t receive a substantial bill should you suffer an injury or if your expensive ski equipment gets lost or stolen.
The right cover
Although many standard holiday insurance policies include medical, loss of baggage and cancellation cover, these standard policies might not cover you for some activities you may wish to participate in on your winter sports holiday. Therefore, it is important to carefully read the policy’s terms and conditions and be aware of any exclusions.
It is sensible to purchase a policy specifically designed for winter sports travel, with cover including:
– Off-piste skiing/snowboarding
Purchasing your policy
Be aware that some insurers may refuse to pay out if you have an accident but have failed to follow local rules/skied against local authoritative advice e.g. wearing helmets, the do’s and don’ts for pistes or if you’re under the influence of alcohol.
