  • Are You Covered For Winter Sports?

    Filed Under: Blogging

Many international travel insurance policies don’t cover you for winter sports activities and the injuries you may sustain while on the slopes. With these injuries likely to result in hospitalization, the chances are high that you suffer large medical bills if you take part in winter sports without international travel medical insurance.

The combination of many skiing and snow boarding injuries being quite serious – like a broken leg or arm - and the quite frequent need for evacuation by air ambulance creates the potential for some serious medical bills. If you’re not covered, you will have to meet this cost yourself.

Many standard policies don’t include winter sports because insurers see them as too risky. You need to check and ask for a winter sports insurance package to make sure you are covered on your winter vacation.

Most policies like this cover skiing and snowboarding. Other policies include glacier trekking, ice skating, riding on snow mobiles and heliskiing. If you think you will be taking part in activities like these, check you are covered before you have a costly accident.
