Get ready for your winter sports holiday with our add-on

Whether you’ll be doing some high-impact snowboarding in Switzerland, enjoying a chalet retreat with your other half in the French Alps, or heading for a husky-sledding adventure with the family in Lapland, get your winter sports holiday covered with one of our top-rated insurance policies.

You may be asking yourself: But what’s the worst that could happen? The truth is, even the most seasoned winter sportsperson may find themselves in deep water (ok, deep snow) on the slopes. And even if you’re more likely to be found relaxing in your chalet lodge than skiing, you can properly enjoy your time away with the knowledge that you are covered.

If you take an Annual Multi-Trip policy, 17 days cover for Winter Sports is included – free of charge.

What’s covered with our winter sports add-on?

Whether you take out our penny-saving policy (the Economy plan), or our best travel insurance policy (the Diamond plan), we can make sure that your necessities are covered. You’ll get 24/7 access to our team of emergency assistance professionals; we’ll also pay out overseas medical or dental expenses, and cover the costs for any unforeseen disruptions to your holiday. What’s more, you’re always protected with our money back guarantee during the 14-day cooling off period.

With our winter sports travel insurance, we’ve thrown in a few extras too. If there’s a piste closure, or something happens due to bad weather, we’ll be on hand to help. Skiers are also covered with our add-on; depending on which policy you go with, we’ll pay up to £1,000 if your ski equipment is lost or stolen.

For more information about what’s included in each of our policies, have a look at our travel insurance guide.

Please note: your winter sports travel insurance will not cover you if participate in any activity in a professional capacity.
