Does That Travel Insurance Include Winter Sports Cover?

Share Article

Recent studies into Travel Insurance policies covering Winter Sports have shown that cover can vary a great deal depending on which provider someone is purchasing from. Quintessentially Covered give their expert opinion on what needs to be considered when purchasing travel insurance in the winter climates.

Before heading off on that winter ski holiday, contact Quintessentially Covered, who can provide travel insurance that covers everything from skiing to snowboarding. With any insurance it is important to check it includes winter sports cover and doesn’t have any exclusions, or caveats that could cause an issue, should a complaint need to be made.

With frequent skiers and snowboarders be aware that a number of policies only cover hitting the slopes for a number of set days per year or a maximum number of ski trips. With Quintessentially Covered, those who are planning multiple winter sport trips can be covered for the whole Piste duration.

When off on a ski trip, additional cover is required that will entitle someone to sports’ equipment cover, a ski pass if going off-piste, as well as piste closure, avalanche closure and emergency transport to and from hospital if required. Standard travel insurance will only cover cancellation, baggage, and medical cover, but for those who will be holidaying in the European Union, securing an EHIC (European Health Insurance Card) is essential.

Quintessentially Covered will also recommend paying a small premium fee for local insurance covering rescue and transport on or off-piste. For example skiers in France can purchase a Carre Neige pass for a few Euros per day - covering rescue and basic doctor bills.
