Ski and Snowboard Travel Insurance

Ski and Snowboard Travel Insurance


Following numerous requests from the past, All About Travelling provides a new service: special insurance for ski and snowboard “Sport & Fun”! We all know that travel medical insurance is concluded for a limited time, and covers emergency treatment necessary as a result of uncontrollable and unpredictable events during the trip. However, they exclude, in general, events related to the practice of high risk activities, such as extreme sports.

Ski and Snowboard Travel Insurance


To cover these risks All About Travelling allows you to travel medical insurance dedicated to these sports. Insurance policies can be completed online, being offered by the company QBE Insurance.

Before going abroad in a skiing holiday, end of insurance is more important than any other trip, especially because of dangerous situations where you may be exposed on the slopes. From previous years experience we find that many skiers go to ski without having previously completed an adequate medical travel insurance.



To understand the necessity to end such insurance, but also that costs rise even a small intervention, will present the following specific case study:

“A skier who just spent his holidays in Austria ski the slopes fell and suffered a cartilage tear. Initially, it was thought that can be transported in the country, but the Austrian doctor has not taken responsibility and eventually surgery took place in Austria. ”

Unfortunately skier in our example has a special medical travel insurance, so he had to bear all costs of medical treatment. To be able to provide a clear picture of health care costs in Austria will present actual data. They are:

  • Costs of surgery – 6000-9000 Euro
  • One day of hospitalization – 300-400 Euro
  • A visit to the doctor’s office – 200-300 Euro
  • Evacuation by helicopter – 2000-3000 Euro

Thus, All About Travelling introduced to protect skiers and lovers of extreme sports of skiing and snowboarding insurance special. This can be included in the stay of skiing, but can be purchased separately.
