Having adequate travel insurance cover is an essential part of any travel and especially for ski holidays. It’s highly recommended to take out an insurance policy at the time you make a booking and pay the deposit. This enables you to get immediate coverage on things like cancellation fees if you are forced to cancel in certain circumstances.

Suresave Travel Insurance

SkiJapan.com recommend SureSave who offer cover specifically for snow sport holidays. They provide a number of options including single and family cover and also provide cover on a range of pre-existing medical conditions.
In addition to unlimited cover on medical expenses incurred overseas, SureSave policies provide cover on cancellation costs, ski resort closures as well as cover on ski equipment. You can take out a policy online, it’s quick, simple, cost effective and, like most insurance, you’ll be very thankful you have it if you need to use it.

IMPORTANT: You must select the Winter Sports Option at the time you purchase your policy and pay an additional premium in order to have cover for all events normally covered by the standard cover. See the Winter Sports Option on page 23 of the PDS for details.
