Skiing and Winter Sports

Making sure you’re insured on the slopes

If you’re planning on heading up to some snowy peaks and hitting the slopes, you’ll want to ensure you’ve got the right cover just in case something were to happen when skiing or snowboarding.

Travel insurance with winter cover is essential for any snow sports trip, giving you the knowledge that if your trip is effected that you’ll be able to resolve snow-related issues in a straightforward way. Our winter sports cover is included as standard in all our annual travel insurance policies at no extra cost, and you can easily add it onto our other existing policies if you’ve decided to take a surprise skiing trip.

Top Winter Sports Travel Insurance FAQs:

What does ski insurance cover you for?

There’s a whole range of benefits to ski travel insurance in addition to the standard travel insurance benefits like medical cover and replacing lost items. These include:

  • Ski and snowboarding equipment insurance (hired or owned)
  • Ski pass insurance in case you lose your pass or it gets stolen
  • Off-piste insurance, provided the resort hasn’t marked the area as unsafe
  • Ski pack cover, including any ski school or instructor fees
  • Pre-existing conditions, provided we’re informed prior to your ski trip
  • Ski cover for over 65s, so you can enjoy the slopes no matter your age
Does travel insurance cover skiing?

Standard single-trip travel insurance policies typically won’t include winter sports or skiing unless you’d added it onto your policy when you took it out. Adding winter sports cover as an optional extra is usually very easy though, and usually only requires a small addition to your insurance premium.

However, we include winter sports and skiing cover as part of our annual travel insurance policies.

Do I need travel insurance for skiing?

As with any form of winter sport or extreme sport, it is highly recommended to take out a travel insurance policy with skiing cover as the risk of getting into an accident can be quite high.

Any medical assistance which is required could leave you out of pocket if you don’t have insurance in place, so it’s essential to have some form of cover which include winter sports insurance before you get up on the mountain.
