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.
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:
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:
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.
