Ski Insurance

Cheap Ski Insurance

 

Because skiing is a recognised high risk sport, and due to the uncertain weather conditions inherent to mountainous regions, all snow goers should spend time sourcing cheap travel insurance quotes and taking out comprehensive cover, that includes cancellation, as soon as accommodation and travel is booked.

To ensure a high degree of protection, companies such as niche insurance company, ski-insurance.com.au, and online travel insurers, 1Cover.com.au, have put together domestic and international medical travel insurance policies specifically with the ski market in mind.

Buying single trip or annual multi trip cover direct through the travel insurer will potentially be up to 50% cheaper than policies purchased through a travel company, therefore, before purchase travellers should compare travel insurance quotes to find the most economical and comprehensive option for their destination.

Cover for the Australian Ski Fields

In winter, the Australian alpine regions play host to thousands of snow enthusiasts enjoying downhill and cross country skiing, telemark “free heel”, tobogganing and more.

To avoid financial disappointment, holiday insurance should be taken out for local snow holidays and ideally should include:

  • Unlimited cancellation fees and lost deposits
  • Piste, bad weather and avalanche closure plus travel delay
  • Emergency rescue, accidental death, permanent disability and loss of income
  • Luggage and personal effects
  • Equipment hire, ski pack and rental vehicle excess
  • Personal Liability and additional expenses

Cover for the International Ski Fields

Each year thousands of Australians ski New Zealand, the U.S.A., Europe and Japan and hundreds risk their financial future by not taking out an adequate travel/medical insurance policy.

International travel insurance requires additional aspects to be covered and policies should include all the key areas of a domestic travel policy, as listed above, plus:

  • Unlimited overseas emergency medical assistance plus unlimited overseas medical, hospital and dental
  • Lost or stolen travel documents, credit cards, cash and traveller’s cheques plus loss of luggage and personal effects and delayed luggage
  • Travel delay and alternative transport
  •  

Low Cost Insurance for Groups

Groups of ten or more may qualify for discounted travel insurance with no loss of benefits and the freedom to arrange their own travel.

Groups benefiting from cheap travel insurance quotes are not excluded to organisations and may include family groups, friends, student groups such as bands and language clubs, exchange and church groups as well as civic, fraternal and social organisations, professional associations, government and sporting groups and more.
