Protect Yourself with WAS Insurance

At Wise and Silent Insurance, we want to make sure that all aspects of your trip are covered.

That's why, if you're planning on adding any winter sports to your itinerary, you must let us know to ensure ski and snowsports insurance is added to your policy.

Why Do I Need Insurance to Cover Winter Sports?

We know there's nothing like the bracing feeling of whizzing down a mountain on skis or a snowboard. However, the risk of injury comes with the territory of winter sports.

That's true whether you're braving the black runs or just starting out as a beginner.

Therefore, you'll need to upgrade or amend your travel insurance policy to include snow activities like skiing and snowboarding if you want those activities covered.

So, if you're:

  • An expert going off-piste with a guide in Switzerland
  • Taking beginner snowboarding classes in Melbourne
  • Going cross-country skiing in Japan

You'll need to upgrade your policy to get those activities covered.

What Happens if I'm Involved in a Winter Sports incident?

International medical bills can be costly. If you take a fall while out on the slopes and need medical help, whether you were to blame or not, the fallout can be eye wateringly expensive, especially in places like the US.

This scenario is one of the main reasons to consider upgrading to an insurance policy that includes cover for skiing and snowboarding.

When you upgrade your quote to include ski and snowsports travel insurance, we provide coverage for any winter sports-related injuries sustained during your trip, as long as you were complying with the conditions of your policy.

It gives you one less thing to worry about when donning your skis of a morning!

So, What Is Covered in Our Snowsports Insurance Plan?

At WAS Insurance, we offer a range of uniquely created plans to fit in with the demands of modern travellers, even enabling you to upgrade during your trip.

Our snowsports insurance covers you in the following circumstances:

  • In the event of an injury whilst skiing that requires a change to your prepaid travel plans, we will pay up to the limit, applicable where you have selected Cancellation or trip interruption cover.
  • We'll pay for non-refundable, pre-paid ski lift passes, snow sport equipment, hire or tuition fees you can't use due to injury or illness sustained during your trip.
  • We'll pay if you're prevented from skiing at a pre-booked ski resort for more than 24 continuous hours during your trip due to insufficient snow or too much snow causing a total closure of the lift system.
  • If your snow sports equipment is lost, delayed or damaged during the trip, we'll pay the necessary cost of hiring replacement equipment.

We want to offer a customised policy that suits your unique needs, as well as being clear on the specifics of what's not covered in our snowsports policy.
