Why is Winter Sports Travel Insurance particularly important?
Winter Holidays are more popular than ever and many Brits are taking to the slopes for a bit of winter holiday action. Yet travelers are often surprisingly reluctant to take out Winter Sports Insurance, despite the potential costs associated with something going wrong on the slopes.
Winter Sports cover will be different from regular Travel Insurance due to the nature of the activities participated in whist away. Snow sports can be dangerous and equipment is expensive to replace whether you own it or have rented it.
It is important to consider investing in a Winter Sports Travel Insurance policy that will cover you should you be unlucky enough to sustain an injury, serious or otherwise. It is also important to ensure that your ski or snowboarding equipment is covered, as these have the potential to get lost or stolen and could be costly to replace.
Unfortunately standard Travel Insurance is not likely to cover you for Winter sports activities as this is a common exclusion. If you already have an Annual Travel Insurance policy, then make sure you understand what is covered, and you may be able to bolt on Winter Sports cover as an additional extra.
Winter Sports cover does cost slightly more than a standard Travel Insurance policy, but it should be viewed as a necessity rather than a last minute thought.
