Our winter sports insurance goes further

From the Alps to the Rockies, or wherever else you might be going, Direct Travel Insurance is just the ticket. Whether you are planning to spend your holiday on black runs or beginner slopes, we’ll cover your needs. Our easy to understand policies allow you to switch off and enjoy the freedom of the mountains.

We can provide cover for you to take part in winter sports from 17 to 31 days, on an Annual Multi-Trip policy.

Cover for most pre-existing medical conditions can be added to any winter sports policy.

Claim for lost or stolen luggage, including lost, stolen, or damaged winter sports equipment.

Not enough snow? Maybe too much? Claim if the piste is closed for more than 12 hours.

Had an accident? Don’t worry - call our 24hr emergency helpline for free advice and medical assistance.

Going on a few breaks?

We don’t just offer Single Trip policies! If you’re planning more than one ski or snowboarding holiday then check out our Annual Multi-Trip winter sports holiday insurance. This cost-saving option takes away the hassle of having to buy multiple policies.

Travel whenever you like, with cover valid for up to 31 days over the course of the 365 day period, depending on insurer and cover limits. This covers multiple trips and with winter sports added, including cover for skiing, snowboarding, husky dog sledding, and many other winter sports and activities.
