Austria’s tourist office provides this important advice, which ensures you peace of mind can go skiing:
It can be very expensive if you encounter an accident during a ski holiday without insurance coverage. In addition to liability insurance, it is also advisable to spend a little extra on accident insurance when you go skiing or snowboarding as it is considered an extreme sport in many places. Some insurance covers a single ski holiday, but there is a separate type of policy that can cover multiple trips. Others cover regular races on the piste, but not off-piste games, etc. You should, therefore, ensure that your insurance covers what you need. Here are some of the things you need to be aware of:
– Check that the entire family is covered and entered into the policy if required.
– Make sure you are covered by off-piste skiing if you or someone in your family is of the adventurous type.
– Also, remember that travel insurance always covers only injuries and illnesses that have occurred on the trip. Therefore, you may need a medical advance assessment to know if the insurance covers other pre-existing conditions.
