ski insurance

If you're heading onto the slopes on your backpacking trip, you need to ensure you have the appropriate winter sports cover added to your policy. Winter sports cover protects you for a range of potential issues not covered for by your basic backpacker travel insurance policy. These include cover for your winter sports equipment, lift pass, ski pack and winter sports equipment hire protection. You will also be covered for piste closure and cover if an avalanche delays your arrival or departure from your booked ski resort, as well as receive additional cover for physiotherapy in the United Kingdom if you do suffer a winter sports related injury whilst abroad.

It is simple to add your winter sports add-on pack to your travel insurance - you can do this whilst making your way through our secure online quote system. You'll also be able to add on a range of additional extreme sports if you are looking to really add some excitement to your backpacking holiday.
