For fans of the white stuff, the chance to escape the British winter and have a blast on a pair of skis can be very tempting. However, anyone planning on enjoying a winter sports holiday should think about travel insurance before they climb on to the ski lift.
There are not many recreational skiers who don't spend some time sitting on the snow with their skis pointing in the wrong direction and an unlucky few end up with more than a bruised ego. Winter Sports Cover is there to make sure that if the worst happens, you don't have to worry about paying for medical treatment, the cost of which can run into thousands of pounds. But Winter Sports Cover includes a lot more than just medical insurance.
But if the worst happens, you don't want to get your trunk in a knot worrying about how to sort things out. Knowing that a member of the Elephant Travel Insurance team is at the end of the phone, ready to help with any problems, means that you can relax and enjoy your break.
Damaged or stolen equipment could be expensive to replace but an Elephant Travel Insurance Winter Sports Policy includes either repair or replacement costs, up to the policy limits.
Even if you don't hurt yourself and your equipment remains in good working order, there are other financial losses that you could suffer. Not being able to ski because the piste is closed can be a major disappointment but receiving compensation of £25 or £50 per day (up to a maximum £250 or £500 depending on level of cover) can help to soften the blow.
You can also claim for lift passes or skiing lessons if they remain unused due to illness or injury. So, for some fun-filled escapades on the slopes, and of course the après-ski, let Elephant Travel Insurance take care of it.
