Going away on holiday or a short break? No one wants the unexpected to happen when they go abroad, but unfortunately there is no such thing as a totally risk-free winter sports holiday. Last year, there were more than 400,000 travel insurance claims by holiday and business travelers, according to the Association of British Insurers.
Ski travel insurance and snowboarding insurance is not so much an optional extra as an
integral part of any winter sports break. Our specialist winter sport ski travel insurance and snowboarding insurance policies cover the obvious problems, such as an accident or an illness, a stolen wallet or purse. Our insurance also provides cover for all your ski and snowboarding equipment.
Ski Travel Insurance also provide compensation for delays and cancellation, for damaged or lost luggage, and even a telephone help line for emergencies. Off piste ski and snowboarding is covered with our ski travel insurance and snowboarding insurance policies.
Planning more than one trip away?
The advantage of a multi trip travel insurance policy is that there is no need to worry about arranging cover for each journey you take and it’s usually better value than buying individual policies for two or three trips a year. A multi-trip travel insurance policy allows you to travel as many times in the year as long as each trip is not longer than 45 days. Up to 17 days ski insurance and snowboarding insurance is included free with most annual travel policies. However, if you’re going to be skiing or snowboarding for more than 17 days, you can either purchase a single trip or long-stay ski insurance and snowboarding insurance policy for each trip.
All winter sport activities can be covered, even heli – skiing / boarding. This is the home of the ski insurance and snowboarding insurance specialist. Multi trip travel insurance and ski insurance and snowboarding insurance is also backed by the largest insurance carriers. Multi trip travel insurance including ski insurance and snowboarding insurance is an even better deal for families. Insurance for a couple will be cheaper than for two single adults and cover for a family with children under 18 is not usually much more expensive than cover for a couple. Do watch, though, for restrictions on how the cover works.
Some family travel policies only cover the family if everyone travels together. The best policies will cover each adult travelling on his or her own, and even unaccompanied trips by the children.
What type of policy is best?
The simplest way to buy ski travel insurance and snowboarding insurance might seem to be through a travel agent or tour operator. Sometimes, these policies are free, but where they are not free they can be expensive. Travel agents are no longer allowed to insist that holiday makers book ski travel insurance and snowboarding insurance through them and it’s almost always possible to find a better deal by shopping around.
The traditional way to buy ski travel insurance and snowboarding insurance is to take out cover for each trip and this is usually how tour operators sell their cover. If you only make one or possibly two trips abroad a year, this might be the best option. A growing number of travelers, however, are opting for annual travel insurance that include ski travel insurance and snowboarding insurance cover. An annual travel insurance policy may provide up to 17 days ski insurance and snowboarding insurance cover at no extra cost.
