Even the most experienced skiers and snowboarders have accidents. Don’t let injury, lost equipment or other mishaps interrupt your winter sports holiday—consider snowboard and ski travel insurance from Cover-More as an add-on when you get your travel insurance.
Why should you get a quote for travel insurance with winter sport cover? Even a minor accident can ruin a holiday. Proof of insurance can even be required before treatment is given in Japan. The average cost of a simple emergency room visit in the USA now exceeds US $1,200.
Cover-More policyholder Clara discovered this when her son was snowboarding on Mammoth Mountain in eastern California. He fell and broke his wrist resulting in costly US medical expenses. The total claim was more than $2,594 — which Cover-More covered so the family wasn't out of pocket for his injury.
“Cover-More was efficient and prompt in paying the bills (which are notoriously high in the USA!). I will choose Cover-More again for travel insurance!” Clara, Cover-More customer
Our winter sport cover can protect your trip whether you’re skiing in Canada, taking advantage of a ski package at a ski resort in Japan or just headed to Queenstown for a long weekend.
For an extra premium, you can add quality ski, snowboarding or snowmobiling cover to any Cover-More travel insurance policy during the quote process. If your winter sports holiday includes tobogganing, ice fishing or hockey, cover is provided at no extra cost.
To make it an even better deal, every Cover-More international travel insurance policy automatically comes with a host of great benefits, including:
And skiing isn't the only adventure sport we cover; if you’re headed for the beach rather than the slopes, we also offer travel insurance for paragliding, scuba diving, jet skiing and much more.
Before you leave on your winter sports holiday, make sure you understand when you are and are not covered. As always, the best way is to read the complete policy wording in the Product Disclosure Statement for full details.
For example, skiers and snowboarders will not be covered if they are off-piste, racing or participating in a professional capacity. Snowmobilers will not be covered for personal liability as a snowmobile is considered to be a mechanically propelled vehicle.
If you do need to make a claim, be sure to keep receipts and check what documentation you’ll need to make the claims process as quick and painless as possible.
