Hit snowy slopes confidently with our skiing travel insurance
Whether you are a beginner or an experienced snow demon, getting away from it all and enjoying a skiing trip is a great way to banish the winter blues.
But whilst you may be confident in your abilities - for those with a few hours under their skis! - you can never be sure that you won't be one of the unlucky few that suffer an accident whilst out on the slopes.
Whilst skiing accidents have steadily declined in the last 30 years, some types of injury have actually increased, such as knee ligament damage. And being out there exposed to the elements means that if you have an accident, it may not be due to your lack of expertise - the terrain can change rapidly and icy patches can be treacherous.
And of course, there is always the risk that you could get hit by another skier or snowboarder, especially from behind. If you can see them you may have a chance of getting out of the way but being caught unawares can result in serious injuries.
And if you get hurt whilst out on the slopes, the last thing you want to have to worry about is whether you can afford medical treatment. Taking out winter sports travel insurance before you go away will make sure that if the worst happens, you can concentrate on getting better and forget the finances.
We have a dedicated claims team at the end of a phone around the clock so if you have a mishap, whether it's just losing your passport or a medical emergency, you will have the help and support of an experienced claims advisor to help support you from beginning to end.
Whilst we hope you aren't one of the unlucky ones that suffers a mishap whilst you are away on holiday, if you do, you can rest assured that help and advice is always just at the end of the phone, providing all the support you need so that one little hiccup doesn't ruin your entire break.
