Man skiing downhill - hopefully he has ski travel insurance, with our winter sports cover!

What is winter sports travel insurance?

Winter sports travel insurance is a specific policy that covers you for the extra risks that come hand-in-hand with winter sports. Risks that wouldn’t usually be covered by a standard travel insurance policy.

So, if your holiday involves skiing or snowboarding, add winter sports cover to your Comprehensive policy and protect yourself against the risks that come with snow, ice and high altitudes!

  • Loss, theft or damage to equipment and ski passes
  • Equipment hire fees if your equipment is lost, stolen, damaged or delayed
  • Unused ski-school or ski-instructor fees
  • Piste closure and avalanche/landslide delays

Winter sports cover is included with all Comprehensive Annual Multi-Trip policies. So you can travel as often as you like, with the added bonus of 21 days of winter sports cover.✝

What activities does winter sports insurance cover?

Our winter sports policy covers the following activities:

  • Ice-skating (outdoor)
  • Glacier skiing
  • Guided cross-country skiing (Nordic Skiing)
  • Mono-skiing (on-piste)
  • Skiing or Snowboarding (on-piste)
  • Skiing or Snowboarding (off-piste on recognised and authorised areas only)
  • Snowshoeing
  • Tobogganing
  • Ice sailing/ice windsurfing*
  • Snowmobiling (Ski-doo)*
  • Sleigh pulled by reindeer* (when driven by an experienced driver provided by the organiser only)

Activities are only covered on a non-competitive/non-professional basis.

Know before you go

Before you travel, always check:

  • The Foreign Office (FCDO) say it’s safe to travel to your destination.
  • Your destination’s government advice, safety guidelines and entry requirements.

Important: FCDO travel advice and travel rules issued by the government are two separate pieces of advice.

"Quick and easy to navigate the site and great prices, we always use this company and won't be changing, great value"
"Always good value and easy to use and will cover medical conditions if needed"
"I was unexpectedly diagnosed with an illness that was thankfully cured by surgery. I travel a lot and was unsure how this would affect travel insurance. I phoned Staysure and was given clear and helpful information, asked quite detailed health questions and was finally given a very competitive quote for an annual policy with the option to pay monthly. Very efficient service, great company to deal with."
