Aviva urges snow-sporters to get covered

Research commissioned by Aviva has revealed that whilst for a quarter of skiers and snowboarders their holiday this winter will be their first winter sports holiday only 40% of them will have winter sports travel insurance.

There is a significant correlation between experience with winter sports and insurance, with 70% of those who consider themselves expert taking out coverage, compared to just 45% of self-assessed beginners.

Preparing for such a holiday takes time, but of those surveyed over a third (37%) stated they had yet to take out insurance, of whom a quarter indicated they would not take any out.

Simon Warsop, director of business development at Aviva, pointed out that the average medical claim in 2011-12 was £1,410, but adding winter sports to Aviva travel insurance costs just £6 or £7.
