Winter holidays travel insurance

It may seem strange to think about winter in the height of summer, but if you have booked to go on a winter holiday this year then you should start to think about your holiday insurance if you have not done so already.
When travelling abroad it imperative that you have the correct level of travel insurance to cover you and anyone else in your family that is travelling with you. If you are choosing to go on a winter holiday then you may need to carefully consider what activities you may be doing and check prior to leaving, if you are covered for those in your holiday insurance as often they will not cover certain sports.
Skiing and snowboarding are very often done when going on a winter holiday but usually require an upgrade of insurance or even a different insurer as the risk of injury is increased when taking part in these sorts of activities. Other activities that you may wish to try out include husky rides and tobogganing. Do not leave it until the last minute to check you are covered for such activities as if you are not you may need to go to another company to get your cover. If you have already taken out the policy within the last 14 days check as soon as you can as you may be entitle to a refund if you cancel early.
