Whether you’re shuffling down the bunny runs or swooshing down a black – there’s one thing that
every skier or snowboarder needs - travel insurance.
Select our Snow Ski Cover to ensure that you have adequate cover on the slopes.
If you have a serious accident and need to be rescued or evacuated off the mountain, our snow ski cover has your back.
Don’t lose out on your pre-paid expenses if you have to cancel your ski trip due to injury, illness or bad weather.
If your journey is delayed more than 12 hours because of avalanche or bad weather, we’ll cover your extra costs for travel & accommodation.
Ski equipment is expensive. You're covered for theft of your ski gear as long as you've taken proper care of it in the first place.
We cover off-piste skiing and snowboarding as long as you are with a qualified guide or instructor.
We cover for alternative snow and ski equipment following accidental loss, theft or breakage of your snow skiing equipment.
You're covered no matter where you're hitting the powder. We cover all ski resorts, as long as it is open and safe.
Your health is our number one priority. Our emergency assistance experts are just a phone call away 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Why not get covered in snow all year round. If you’re planning several trips this year a frequent traveller policy can save you time and money, both on and off the slopes.
Our annual multi-trip policy covers an unlimited number of trips over a 12 month period. We give you the same level of cover as our comprehensive international plan, meaning you get full coverage for less. You can tailor your individual trip duration from 15 days up to 90 days. Please note this policy is only available for customers under the age of 64.
Ski insurance is designed to insure the average skier or snowboarder who’s enjoying the slopes, not professionals doing backflips, skiing off-piste and taking all sort of crazy risks. Does that sound like you? If you’re not sure, check out these areas where we will not cover you.
Out of season: Skiing outside the official ‘season’ is not covered: 1 December and 15 April for travel to the Northern Hemisphere, or between 15 June and 30 September for travel to the Southern Hemisphere.
