Winter Sports Ready

The snow is on its way

The winter sports season is just around the corner, so get your skis and snowboards ready, because this season looks set to be a great one for winter sports enthusiasts.

Whilst it can be tempting to save money on some aspects of your winter sports break, there's one thing you definitely shouldn't scrimp on and that's travel insurance.

Adrenaline junkie

Adrenaline junkies will love the opportunity to escape the wintry UK weather for the slopes of Switzerland this year. Or why not head further afield for some great winter sports action in the USA?

Staying in a popular ski resort is about far more than just taking to the slopes - you'll find an active social calendar and great night life at most ski resorts and if you head to the same resort each year you're sure to meet plenty of likeminded people.

For beginners and those travelling with children, look out for child-friendly slopes or resorts offering discounted instruction. If you can leave the kids to their lessons for a couple of hours, it gives you more time to discover the more challenging slopes!

Specialist cover

Did you know that you can get specialist winter sports cover when you travel? Whilst regular single trip travel insurance will provide you and your family with medical cover and protect your bags if they're lost or stolen, just think about how much money you've spent on your snowboarding or skiing equipment?

Specialist winter sports cover will protect you if your equipment is lost, stolen or damaged, as well as providing you with medical cover, lost or stolen luggage cover and cancellation/curtailment cover. You're not just limited to one activity either winter sports travel insurance will cover you for a whole range of activities including skating and tobogganing, so no matter what you get up to, you'll be protected!
