It goes without saying that a winter sports trip generally carries more risks than your average holiday (and that’s probably why you love it!); however the risk of travelling without snowboarding insurance is not one you want to take. An injury during your snowboarding holiday could easily develop into many other complications and who knows what else! With more and more providers offering cheap snowboarding travel insurance policies there really is no excuse not to buy yourself a safety net.
Snowboard travel insurance provides standard cover that you would expect with your usual travel insurance policy, such as luggage cover and cancellation of your holiday. In addition, it will also cover you for all the misfortune that might befall you while snowboarding.
Policies tailored for snowboarding insurance also offers specific cover for medical emergencies that could arise on the slopes (such as piste rescue and closure) as well as other extras such as cover for lost snowboard equipment – whether it is hired or owned.
Whether you are taking a single snowboarding holiday or going for the season you can select either a single trip or annual snowboard insurance policy. Always check your policy statement to make sure you are covered for all activities you would like to do at your destination such as skiing or paragliding.
Travel alone, travel with your family, travel with friends – the choice is truly yours. Be a responsible snowboarder and protect yourself with snowboarding travel insurance!
