Winter Snow Travel Insurance: Protecting Your Winter Holiday - Marketwire.
With these figures in mind Asda Money looks at how securing the right travel insurance can offer you peace of mind, and allow you to fully enjoy your winter sports holiday.
Benefits of travel insurance
Travel insurance is always a good idea for any kind of holiday, including those based around winter sports activity, helping to meet the cost of medical expenses and hospital stays should you incur injuries while on your winter snow holiday.
The best travel insurance policies are the ones that provide the right level of cover for your needs within your budget. Most ski insurance policies will cover the costs of any medical treatment required, as well as things such as on-piste rescue and the cost of an air ambulance.
Ski insurance may also provide cover for items specifically linked to ski holidays, such as the loss of ski passes or reimbursement of equipment hire costs, ski lesson fees and lift passes should you suffer an injury. Some policies may allow you to claim back the cost of a ski pass should you be unable to ski due to a lack of snow.
