Ski insurance – what to look for

Before taking out a ski holiday insurance policy it’s important to rea the policy documents carefully to ensure your travel insurance fully covers you for any an every eventuality. These are some of the common features of ski insurance policies which you should look out for:

Medical expenses

How much does the policy over you for if you require medical treatment following injury while skiing, or in the resort

Piste closure

Some policies will pay you if posted are closed unexpectedly, meaning you can’t ski

Avalanche cover

Should avalanches cause ski slopes to be closed this ski insurance policy feature will cover you

Ski equipment

Equipment is expensive so ski insurance policies should cover damage to your skis, snowboard or other equiptment as well as the cost of renting new equipment should yours be damaged before the end of your ski holiday

Personal liability cover

An important part of winter sports insurance policies as should you be liable for injury or damage to other skiiers you will be covered to the specified amount

Cancellation

Cancellation cover is worth looking out for on a ski insurance policy as ski holidays can be expensive and should you need to cancel unexpectedly and be unable to recover costs from your travel agent
