Ski and snow travel insurance

Skiing and snowboarding overseas can be great fun. But when you're speeding down a mountain on a piece or two of wood, the chance of an accident might be higher than if you're just wandering the pavement of an historic city. That's why our travel insurance allows you to add additional ski and snow cover to your policy.
