Protect Yourself with Travel Protect

At Travel Protect, we want to make sure that all aspects of your trip are considered. If you plan on adding any winter sports to your itinerary, you must let us know to ensure that the Snow Pack is added to your policy.

Why Do I Need Travel Insurance to Cover Winter Sports?

Winter sports activities such as skiing and snowboarding come with an increased risk of injury. Therefore, it is essential to upgrade your travel insurance policy to include the Snow Pack if you want those activities covered. This is true whether you are braving the black runs or just starting out as a beginner. So, if you are an expert going off-piste with a guide in Switzerland, taking beginner snowboarding classes in New Zealand, or going cross-country skiing in Japan, you'll need to upgrade your policy to get those activities covered.

What Happens if I'm Involved in a Winter Sports Incident?

If you take a fall while out on the slopes and need medical help, whether you were to blame or not, the medical bills can be extremely costly. This is one of the main reasons to consider upgrading to a travel insurance policy that includes cover for skiing and snowboarding. When you upgrade your quote to include ski and snow sports travel insurance, we can provide coverage for winter sports-related injuries sustained during your trip, as long as you were complying with the conditions of your policy. This gives you one less thing to worry about when donning your skis in the morning!
