Winter Sports Travel Insurance
Adequate travel insurance is important for any holiday, but particularly so for those involving skiing, snowboarding and winter sports.
As a condition of booking all Ski Weekender customers must have adequate medical and repatriation insurance, and have checked that this covers them for winter sports cover. If you are in any doubt please check with your insurer. We also strongly recommend that you have cancellation and baggage cover. Please remember that your policy must cover your entire stay including both your day of arrival and departure. Please ensure you bring all necessary policies and documents with you.
