Winter Sports Travel Insurance

If you missed out on a summer vacation this year then perhaps you’re looking to hit the slopes this Christmas for a more active kind of break. It’s true that many people are tempted to forget the daily stresses and strains of work and home for a few days in blissfully dramatic mountain scenery, on a concoction of snow, speed, blinding sunlight and après-ski social fun. Whether going with your partner, your family or a big group of your friends, skiing is a great way to celebrate the winter season, but before you embark on your big icy adventure it’s important to make sure that you are comprehensively covered by the right kind of travel insurance. With the huge amount of choice available, it can be intimidating to trawl through the multitudinous travel insurance companies to find out who has the best deal, so here are a few handy hints to cut down on the leg work and to find you the best offers.

Firstly, it’s important to consider what you require from your travel insurance. If you are planning to take your own skiing or snowboarding equipment then you will need to ensure that this is included on the policy for breakage, loss or damage. If you’re planning to hire equipment on arrival then the insurance for this is usually included in the hiring price. If you’re travelling with a family you’ll need to check that people of all ages are included on the winter sports policy and if you’re working on a tight budget you might want to consider your location as not only are some resorts vastly more expensive than others, but your choice of location can also affect the cost of your travel insurance.

Some travel insurance companies do include a certain amount of winter sports cover on their annual policy so if you’re planning to make several trips this year that could be a quick way to save some cash. However, it’s crucial that you carefully check all the small print to make sure that you’re not losing out on effective cover. Perhaps excess fees are higher or medical expenses cover isn’t quite as much – these are all important things to be aware of.

Websites such as MoneySupermarket.com will also help cut down the time you spend looking for your perfect insurance deal. Covering insurers from AA Travel to Insure Direct, it is sure to find some of the best travel insurance deals for you. Above all, be sure to feel secure in your insurance. Be satisfied with the cover that it offers you and you’ll have a much more enjoyable break.

AA is a good insurance company to buy from however it's quite expensive. The good thing though is that they cover Recreational sports for free including winter sports.

I think private sport insurance looking too expensive and so You'll need single trip or annual winter sport travel insurance.
