Skiing Travel Insurance
Planning a ski trip? Whether you are heading to Japan, Canada, New Zealand, USA, Europe or even the Australian slopes more skiers are finding that travel insurance is a wise choice.
Experienced skiers and boarders are addicted to fresh tracks, floating through powder and the speed of a downhill run. While beginners grapple with bindings, balance, getting on and off ski lift chairs and stopping!
It doesn’t matter how skilled you are, skiing is extremely unpredictable. The catching of an edge, an unintended collision or falling the wrong way can all cause injury. Also, as people usually travel with family and friends, an unfortunate incident can affect everyone’s holiday.
Why You Should Get Travel Insurance
Here are some key reasons why you should add ski cover to your travel insurance:
- Compared to the cost of transportation, accommodation, equipment, lift tickets and entertainment, travel insurance is a small cost that can protect a significant ‘ski’ investment.
- Travel insurance can cover you if you or someone in your family becomes ill or gets hurt before your holiday. For example, if you sprain an ankle or contract an illness and you don’t have travel insurance, then your will be out of pocket for all non-refundable expenses such as airfares, accommodation, and pre purchased ski lift deposits. However, if you have travel insurance and an accompanying doctors certificate then your costs will be covered.
- If someone is injured on the mountain, travel insurance will cover medical evacuation, medical care, cancellation costs and the cost of extra airfare to return home for all policyholders.
- If you have travelled overseas, travel insurance can cover weather-related flight delays plus accommodation and meals if the airport closes and you are standard.
There are compelling benefits to purchasing travel insurance for a skiing holiday. Also, it is advised you purchase cover as soon as you have paid for any flights and/or deposits. It is also preferable to select a travel insurance policy that has unlimited medical cover and medical evacuation cover. Heli-rescues and foreign medical care can run into the hundreds of thousands of dollars.
