Snow Sports highlights:

Are you a keen snow bunny bound for the slopes? Perhaps you’ve got your eye on Japan’s fluffy peaks, New Zealand’s fun terrain parks or Canada’s vast ski resorts. Deep pow and bluebird days will make for a gorgeous time, but accidents can still happen, so it’s a good idea to get Snow Sports cover.

Skiing and Snowboarding

We provide cover on and even off-piste – provided you are not going against local advice or warnings.

Heli-Skiing and -Boarding

Freely provides coverage if you are on a guided tour with a licenced tour operator.

Medical Costs

We’ll take the sting off any medical bills or additional expenses you rack up whilst skiing, snowboarding or snowmobiling on-piste – as well as cross-country skiing.


Freely Coverage

You can add snow sports cover once you have your Freely Explorer coverage. We’ve grouped the travel insurance essentials here to make things easy.
