Why does Ski insurance matter?


If your baggage is sent to a different destination, or left at the starting point due to no fault your own, it can be a very inconvenient start to your holiday.


What does Ski insurance cover?


Ski travel insurance policies do cover expenses for a limited amount of emergency supplies until your baggage arrives. They do not cover expenses for non-emergency items.


You must keep receipts for all emergency supplies and obtain a report from the carrier stating the length of the delay.
