Important to check if your travel insurance policy covers winter sports

An ABTA (Association of British Travel Agents) research states that travelers over 55 are more likely not to check if winter activities such as skiing and snowboarding are covered by their policies in their travel insurance.

More than a third of the respondents, over 55 years of age, said that they do not review the policy, while only one out of seven respondents between 18 and 24 years old said they do not.

It is important for all travelers, to buy the adequate insurance that covers their needs and winter activities, so that in case of having an emergency, it is covered.

Fit 2 Trip offers winter sports coverage that includes own winter equipment insurance, piste closure, avalanche and other emergencies. Insurance is available for single trips or on annual multi-trip basis, and can be bought as medical only, or as multi-risk policy.

Always make sure you read the policy and remember that if you have annual multi-risk insurance you should check that it includes winter sports, or otherwise we recommend extending your coverage.
