Ski accidents are costly

Even a minor accident can ruin a holiday and leave you with bad memories instead of good ones. In some places like Japan, proof of insurance may be required before treatment is given.

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 paid, 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

Understand what’s covered and what’s not

Before you leave on your snow trip, make sure you know 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 skiing or snowboarding 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.

* Medical and dental cover will not exceed 12 months from the onset of the injury or illness. Reduced limits may not apply for customers 70 years of age or over at the Relevant Time. Limits will be shown on the Certificate of Insurance.
^ As long as you are on-piste, not racing and not participating in a professional capacity.
