Some of the best holidays include some mountain air, deep powder and amazing scenery. We love getting on a mountain whenever there’s a chance to slide down it again and again…and again!
You’ll already know that it can be a costly past time with all the gear, travel and accommodation anywhere that’s alpine. But if something should go wrong whilst you’re at the top of a mountain, the cost of travel insurance will seem insignificant.
Imagine injuring yourself on a mountain, overseas. First, you pay for a helicopter to get you to the nearest hospital. Then, you pay the local hospital costs (remember that you will probably need to prove you can pay before you get help in most countries, or get credit card approval at least). Then, you’ll need to rebook your flights home and pay to change all of your plans. You might even need an ambulance to the airport. Ouch!
The medical costs are going to hurt a whole lot more than your broken leg and probably for a lot longer!
Our travel insurance will look after your medical evacuation, hospital and doctors’ fees and we’ll even pay for the changes to your flights and get you back home safe and fast. Phew!
Ski and snow cover is already included
Did you know SCTI's TravelCare policy provides comprehensive travel insurance including ski and snow cover at no additional cost? Now you do.
What you need to know
You’ll need to make sure you’re skiing or boarding in an amateur downhill ski field and you’re within the designated commercial area. Just don’t go forging off into closed sections or ‘off-piste’ in areas outside the designated ski field area - unfortunately we can’t cover you for that.
You should also be aware, that sporting equipment (skis or snowboards), will not be covered for damage whilst in use. For example, if you were skiing, had a tumble and broke your leg and your skis, you would be covered for your broken leg, but not for your damaged skis. But, if you your skis were broken while they were in checked luggage (and your airline refused to compensate you for the damage) you would be covered.
As with any insurance policy, terms and conditions apply. Please read the Combined FSG and PDS including Policy Wording to make sure TravelCare is right for you and your next ski or snow adventure overseas.
