What is winter sports travel insurance?

Are you planning a winter sports adventure? Before you hit the slopes, consider purchasing Winter Sports Travel Insurance. This specialized policy provides coverage for the unique risks associated with snow, ice and high altitudes. Unlike a standard travel insurance policy, Winter Sports Cover can protect you from loss, theft or damage to your equipment and ski passes, as well as equipment hire fees if your gear is lost, stolen, damaged, or delayed. You’ll also have coverage for unused ski-school or ski-instructor fees, and protection in the event of avalanches or landslides. Upgrade to a Signature policy for even more coverage, with protection for 28 days of winter sports travel over two trips – giving you the peace of mind to enjoy your holiday to the fullest!

What activities does Winter Sports Insurance cover?

The following activities are included in your Winter Sports add-on package:

  • Glacier skiing
  • Guided cross-country skiing (Nordic skiing)
  • Ice-skating (outdoor)
  • Mono-skiing (on-piste)
  • Skiing or snowboarding (off-piste on recognised and authorised areas only)
  • Skiing or snowboarding (on-piste)
  • Snowshoeing
  • Tobogganing

These pursuits are only covered if they are done in a non-professional or non-competitive capacity.

What’s Covered?

  • Winter sports equipment:
    If the equipment you own is lost, stolen, or damaged in any way, you may be compensated for the cost of renting replacement items. You are going to be required to provide them with receipts as well as written confirmation of the initial purchase and the hire of its replacement. When determining the value of your missing items, Staysure will take into account how old they were.
  • Ski pass:
    In the event that your ski pass is stolen, lost, or destroyed in any way, you may be compensated. In order for this protection to take effect, you will either need to have been transporting it at the time of the incident or have stored it in a secure location.
  • Ski pack:
    If you are unable to participate in winter sports due to illness or injury, you may be reimbursed for the unused portion of your ski pack. A ski pack will cover the cost of a lift ticket, as well as the cost of a ski lesson or ski school.To withdraw from your activity, you must provide them with a medical certificate stating that you were unable to participate due to illness or injury.
  • Winter sports equipment delay:
    If the carrier can verify that your luggage was lost for over 12 hours while you were travelling to the starting point of your trip, you may be eligible for financial compensation.
  • Piste closure:
    You may be covered to travel to another location if you are unable to participate in activities at the resort you pre-booked for more than 24 hours in a row due to the total shutdown of the lift system caused by a lack of snow. If this occurs, you will be eligible for coverage.
  • Avalanche or landslide:
    In the event that avalanches or landslides prevent access to the ski resort or cause the cancellation of public transportation services, you may be entitled to reimbursement for reasonable additional lodging and travel expenditures.

Do I need to be vaccinated against COVID-19 to be covered?

With the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak, it’s important to ensure that you’re protected and covered against any potential risks. This means having all the necessary vaccines, including booster jabs, to keep yourself and those around you safe. If you’re wondering whether or not being vaccinated against COVID-19 is necessary for insurance coverage, the answer is yes. To be covered on their policies for COVID-related claims, it’s crucial to have had all doses of the vaccine offered to you. Of course, Staysure understand that some individuals may be unable to receive the vaccine due to medical reasons, and in those cases, coverage can still be provided. However, if you’ve refused any doses of the vaccine, it’s important to note that you won’t be covered. Ultimately, getting vaccinated not only ensures your own safety and well-being but also the well-being of others.
