Snowboarding doesn’t come without its fair share of risks and if you’re thinking of hitting the slopes you'd be mad to go overseas without packing snowboard insurance.
Snowboarding travel insurance policies are specifically designed for boarders and skiers, however if you’re planning on doing dangerous stunts or tricks be aware that these may not be covered.
Evacuation off the slopes: Winter injuries tend to come with quite the price tag! Helicopter rescue in Australia could cost as much as $15,000. And in Canada, you’re looking at a whopping bill of $40,000. Do you have that sort of spare change lying around? Thought not!
Avalanches: Bad weather can really put a spanner in the works of your snowy trip. At least if an avalanche causes your trip to shorten, or your resort to close you can go to another and your travel insurance will reimburse you for any lost fees and deposits.
Injury: Winter sports come with their fair share of thrills and spills, and the hospital fees overseas will make you turn green. Japan, popular for snowboarders is one of the most expensive places to find yourself stuck in hospital from a slip on the slopes. If there is one reason you need travel insurance - this is it.
Ski pack: Should you no longer be able to continue on your holiday due to sickness or injury, all your ski pack and pre-paid expenses are covered with snow insurance.
*Please note, in most cases you are ONLY COVERED for snowboarding with the addition of a winter sports add-on*
