How do I purchase ski insurance?

Some insurers have a separate ski insurance policy, others require you to purchase a snow-sports add-on within the payment process. Use our comparison tool above to get quotes for your ski trip today. 

Does ski insurance cover for off-piste?

Most insurers only cover you when you are skiing or snowboarding off-piste within resort boundaries with a licensed instructor. Although there are a couple that let you ski "true off-piste" check out our off-piste guide for more information. 

If I take my owns skis on holiday, are they covered?

Yes, ski policies usually cover for loss or damage to your own snow sport equipment. However, there are normally restrictions for damage to your equipment while it is in use.

Am I covered for helicopter rescue off the slopes?

Yes, should you need, most insurers will cover you for helicopter evacuation to get you to the nearest hospital for overseas trips. For domestic ski policies you will need to check with your insurer as many domestic travel insurance policies do not include medical benefits. 

I'm only skiing for a weekend - can I buy ski insurance for a portion of my holiday?

Most insurers require you to buy ski insurance for the entire duration of your trip, even if you are only on the slopes a small portion of your holiday. However, Travel Insuranz and Insure4Less allow you to add ski cover for just the number of days you're skiing.

Are my skis covered if they are stolen?

Yes a ski policy usually covers theft of your ski gear as long as you have not left it unattended at the airport or the slopes for example.

What does it mean when it says I am covered for bad weather?

If you're delayed because of bad weather, a comprehensive policy will usually cover your additional travel and accommodation expenses. Also, if there is an avalanche your policy may cover you to go to an alternative resort, or get reimbursement for unused ski passes. 

Are there any exclusions to be aware of?

Most insurers only cover you in "ski season"! This means between December 1 and April 15 for the Northern Hemisphere, and between 15 June and 30 September in the Southern Hemisphere.
