With winter just around the corner, skiers are waiting for the powder so that they can hit the slopes. Ski holidays in Europe are becoming more popular, and as a result, accidents are also becoming more common. Having adequate international travel insurance will ensure that a minor accident will not prove too costly.

If you’re going on a ski trip, you might need to purchase either an international travel insurance plan tailor-made for skiing, or one with hazardous sports coverage. Look for the following benefits in your travel insurance: emergency medical evacuation, physiotherapy, and trip cancellation and interruption. These will prove very handy, as an accident might influence many parts of your trip.

Regardless of whether you have insurance, following some basic guidelines when skiing can help you stay safe. Try and ski in a group, or at least have a ski partner on the slope who can check that you are back safe. Ski on runs that suit your ability, and make sure that you follow all signs and safety procedures outlined by the resort.

Remember not to drink any alcohol before skiing. Not only is it dangerous--in case of any accident, the presence of alcohol in your blood may be grounds for rejecting your insurance claim.
