Travel insurance for winter sports

Going skiing or snowboarding? Get travel insurance for winter sports

If you’re dreaming about hitting the slopes this winter, it’s important to get travel insurance for winter sports.

Buying the right travel insurance means adding a winter sports or ski extension to your standard travel insurance. Not having the right insurance cover when you go skiing or snowboarding can put you at risk of being out of pocket if you are injured on the slopes and require emergency medical treatment.

What’s different about travel insurance for winter sports?

If you go skiing with standard travel insurance, you won’t be covered if you have an accident while skiing. This means you would have to pay any medical costs yourself.

Ski insurance will also generally include some additional sections of cover including cover for your ski equipment, ski lessons and lift pass.
