European Winter Sports Travel Insurance

Traditionally the majority of people going on winter sports holidays from the UK tended to visit countries close by which were host to the most popular winter resorts and where the respective winters in these countries coincided with the UK's. The demand for European winter sports travel insurance or European ski insurance naturally increased during these periods. France and Switzerland are typical examples of the winter resort havens enjoyed on this basis.

Nowadays however there are many more winter resorts available that are still within Europe, but being a little further afield it means that there are no restrictions on any particular month that the winter sports holiday can be taken. As a result winter sports travel insurance for Europe has become popular all year round with people travelling to new resorts such as Slovenia and Bulgaria and enjoying their holidays there. Of course, the advent of the budget airlines has facilitated these types of holiday with more flights and cheaper fares to these destinations.

Our cover is exceptional and comprehensive and summarises as follows:

Cover includes both on and off piste and a huge range of other winter sports activities; tobogganing, ice-skating, snowmobiling, mono-skiing, plus much more.

  • • Loss, Damage or Theft of Winter Sports Equipment & Ski Pass Cover
  • • On and Off Piste Cover
  • • Up to £15,000,000 Medical Emergency & Repatriation
  • • Up to £2,000 Lost, Stolen and/or Damaged Luggage
  • • Up to £3,500 Cancellation & Trip Curtailment
  • • Avalanche, Landslide and Piste Closure Cover
  • • 24 Hour Emergency Helpline
  • • Kids go Free

It is very important that the correct travel insurance is taken out for these trips as the usual travel insurance is unlikely to fully cover the individual. European winter sports travel insurance is vital as the risk of an accident is theoretically greater due to the type sports undertaken and the environment where it takes place.

European winter sports travel insurance should also cover the equipment relating to the particular sport that is to be pursued on holiday. For example, the skis are expensive as are many of the other specialist items required and therefore should be covered. Also the winter sports travel insurance for Europe should cover the particular winter sport being practised. It is vital that the European winter sports travel insurance policy is checked to ensure that not only skiing is covered but other sports such as tobogganing.
