Planning a trip to the snow?

Winter sports holidays are always fantastic fun - however, they also carry an increased risk as you're dependent on the weather conditions, other skiers or snowboarders around you, and you're travelling with expensive equipment. We know how much a great holiday on the slopes means to you, and our policies offer specially designed coverage to protect you, your family and your equipment  - so all you need to do is focus on having a great time on the piste.

Take a look at some of the key features:

  • Up to $25 million cover for overseas medical expenses.
  • Ski pass cover.
  • Piste closure cover.
  • Avalanche delay cover.
  • Off-piste is covered (within resort boundaries with a qualified guide and not against local authority warning or advice).
  • Pre-existing medical cover is available.
  • Winter sports equipment is protected.

In addition to the above, our Winter Sports policies include all the benefits of our standard travel insurance cover. You can also add our Winter Sports Cover to an Annual Multi-Trip travel insurance policy. This would give you unlimited days of winter sports protection throughout the year. You can take as many trips as you like (to the snow or anywhere else) with just one travel insurance policy and each trip can last up to 60 days.

Our winter sports cover is top dog, but you should be aware of some limitations to our cover. These include ski or snowboard jumping, and heli-skiing or boarding. Due to their higher-risk nature, we also can’t cover any professional sports, or if you are working as a ski instructor or on the slopes (as this is manual/hazardous labour, which is a general exclusion on the policy).  If you’d like more details about Winter Sports Cover conditions and exclusions, refer to your policy wording document or give us a call.

The views, the fresh air, the sound of the snow as you carve your way down the slopes, they way dinner always tastes amazing after a day in the mountains. Yes, we understand why you love the snow. Hey, why not take us with you?
