Our Skiing Insurance policy options

Put simply, we offer three different policy options…

1. Travel Insurance

We provide a Sports Travel Insurance that includes cover for skiing abroad for leisure or competition. The policy includes cover for medical and repatriation costs, trip cancellation and curtailment, plus more.

2. Travel Insurance Bolt-On

If you have an existing travel insurance policy in place with another provider, such as your bank, but it does not include cover for skiing, we can provide a bolt-on style of protection for your trip.

3. Sports Accident Insurance

Our Sports Accident Insurance is designed to protect you whilst skiing in the UK. The policy offers personal accident insurance and income protection. Get an instant quote for any of our policies online.

            500+ Sports Covered

            Being a specialist in Sports Insurance, we provide cover for over 500 different sports & activities, far more than other providers.

            What makes our policy different?

            It’s important to remember that some travel insurance policies will exclude skiing, snowboarding and many other activities on the slopes. So, if you have an accident and are not covered, you could be left to pick up the bill.

            At SportsCover Direct we cover a variety of ski disciplines including off-piste skiing, cross-country skiing, Nordic combined, ski jumping and a whole host of other activities on the mountains.

            Our policy comes with benefits such as 24 hour emergency medical assistance, search and rescue, cancellation cover and more. If you need to be evacuated from the mountainside or repatriated back home, this will be covered under our policy.

            Our Sports Travel Insurance policy lets you choose the skiing insurance that suits you. Just tell us exactly what you will be doing on your ski holiday and we’ll provide you with the cover you need.

            Why do you need Ski Travel Insurance?

            The possibility of getting injured whilst skiing is relatively high due to the nature of the sport. With this in mind, it is important to financially protect yourself against the costs of receiving medical treatment in a foreign country. 

            Moreover, if you happened to accidentally crash into another skier or snowboarder, our Skiing Insurance policy includes Personally Liability which will cover your legal liability resulting from accidents causing death, bodily injury or property damage to a third party.

            You may also deem it important to cover your skiing equipment against loss, theft or damage. Our policy allows you to add up to £5,600 worth of equipment cover.
