Our ski insurance is designed to combine traditional travel cover with protection for those added winter sports activities.
As standard, all of our Sports Travel Insurance policies include benefits such as 24 hour medical assistance and cover for medical fees, search and rescue cover, including repatriation back to the UK if required and cancellation cover.
We provide £200 worth of equipment cover as standard on our policies, which includes items you may rent such as skis, goggles or poles. The level of this cover can be increased to up to £5,600 on our Gold policy.
If you already have travel insurance but need to cover an activity during a trip then our Activity TopUp is perfect for just that.

More about skiing
Prior to 1860, skiing was primarily used for practical transport purposes in snow-rich areas but since then recreational skiing has massively grown in popularity, with competition also being introduced. Perhaps most popular is alpine skiing and with 1.2 million British people hitting the slopes each year, questions of safety are on the rise. Currently about 40% of skiers chose to wear a helmet which reduces the risk of head injury and it is hotly debated that helmets should be made compulsory. The boom of the ski industry and the introduction of the Winter Olympic Games in 1924 means winter sports are more popular and varied than ever but precautions should be taken. From heli-skiing to cross country skiing to ski jumping, make sure you’re fully covered with one of our comprehensive policies.
