Make the most of your snowboarding holiday with our travel cover

Lets be frank, there are some sports that just shout out the need for insurance before you try them out and snowboarding is one of them. It’s exhilarating, fast and ever so slightly risky. We want to ensure you have the very best snowboarding holiday experience, hence the introduction of our Snowboard Travel Insurance Policy. Our snowboarding travel cover includes helicopter recovery, air ambulance and, for an additional premium, search and rescue, if required. What’s more, it’s great value and can provide immediate cover.

Your snowboarding travel insurance can be easily adapted to suit your individual requirements. It’s available either as single trip or annual multi-trip travel insurance, the latter being particularly useful if you are planning on taking more than one holiday within the year.

Winter sports such as snowboarding attract risk. There are so many factors out of your control when you jump onto the ski lift and head upwards. The weather conditions on the mountainside can be critical. Then there is the questionable ability of some of the people who are moving all around you on the slopes. Can they keep control? Finally there’s the specialist equipment to consider. Potentially, it could be a very expensive holiday if something were to go wrong, unless of course, Columbus Direct is looking after you. We can take the financial risk away as well as ease the usual travel related problems that can crop up on any trip from home.


The benefits from snowboarding insurance include:

  • Full medical assistance if required
  • Lift pass cover
  • Piste closure cover, to compensate for lack of snowboarding
  • Avalanche delay cover
  • Snowboarding and skiing both included under the plan
  • Snowboard and ski equipment cover
  • Pre-existing medical insurance available

You will also benefit from our standard, comprehensive travel insurance. You are automatically protected for over 150 sports and activities at no additional cost, whichever policy you choose. Other than the Single trip policy, you have the option to take out the Annual Multi-trip travel insurance policy. You can select either 11 or 24 days of winter sports cover per year and go elsewhere on holiday without having to spend any additional money.

Our advice is to make the most of the slopes and enjoy the ride. Just make sure you’ve protected yourself before you head down hill. Let us join you on the piste and we will be there for you if you need us.


Terms and conditions apply:

If you purchase travel insurance online you will receive a 10% discount off the price of standard cover.

Discounts do not apply to any additional medical conditions or policy options requiring an additional premium payment.
