If you're heading out into the snow on your backpacking trip, you need to ensure you're still protected for any winter sports you choose to try. Our Winter sports cover is easily added on to your policy and
protects you for a wide range of issues not covered for by your basic backpacker travel insurance policy. Some winter sports, such as heli-skiing, are more dangerous than others and so similarly to our
cover, the more dangerous the sport, the higher level of cover you need. Less dangerous sports such as ice skating, skiing and tobogganing only require
our basic winter sports cover - but for the more adventure types who want to try sports such as ice climbing or snow mobiling our B or C Winter Sports packages are required.
These winter sports policies include essential cover for your equipment or equipment hire as well as covering your lift pass when you're skiing or snowboarding. You will also be covered for piste closure and cover
if an avalanche delays your arrival or departure from your booked 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.
