Travel InsuranceDon't leave home without it

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.

Travel Insurance

Don’t wait to get covered

When you book an overseas holiday months in advance that leaves plenty of time for accidents to happen. recommend you take out travel insurance as soon as you pay the deposit on your holiday. The cost of travel insurance is cheap when medical expenses in a foreign country could cost you thousands of dollars!

What your policy should cover

Overseas medical expenses
Expenses for ski related injuries – some providers consider skiing and snowboarding as outside their normal cover
Cancellation fees for flights, accommodation, transfers, ski equipment rental & lessons
Ski resort closures

If you or your group have any pre-existing medical conditions make sure you consult the insurance company’s product disclosure statement to make sure you’re covered.

Where can I get insurance?

When travelling from other countries we recommend you look online for an insurance provider or even investigate whether your credit card provider has travel insurance.
