What would you say if we told you that snowboarding is actually more dangerous than skiing? It is. Statistics from the 2009 winter season show snowboarding injury rates of 3-5 injuries per 1,000 snowboarder days. Skiers are injured at a rate of 2-3 per 1,000 days.
Just as a point of reference, a snowboarder day is measured as a single day spent on the slopes by a single snowboarder. So if 500 visitors use a resort in a given day that would be considered 500 snowboarder days. At a potential rate of five injuries per 1,000 days, snowboarding must be considered a dangerous sport.
If you plan to make snowboarding part of your next holiday, it goes without saying you need snowboarding insurance from Downunder. Without insurance, you're risking severe financial consequences in the event of an accident and/or injury. Do not take that risk.
More Than Just Snowboarding Insurance
When you purchase snowboarding insurance through us, you get more than just cover on the slopes. We protect you against financial loss from injuries, lost or stolen equipment, and unexpected delays, but also provide you with comprehensive travel insurance that covers just about any unforeseen circumstance you might possibly encounter. It will get you through even the roughest times should your holiday not turn out the way you expected.
When you take out our snowboarding insurance with comprehensive cover, you get the following:
• cover for medical expenses and repatriation - up to £10 million
• personal accident cover - up to £30,000
• hospital benefits
• cover for personal effects and baggage - up to £1,500
• cancellation, curtailment, and delay cover
• cover for lost passports, travel documents, and cash
• missed departure cover
• personal liability and legal expense cover
This list of benefits gives you a good idea of what our comprehensive insurance covers. However, it is by no means a conclusive list. We are able to offer a full range of additional choices in order to supply you with the perfect coverage for your trip. We don't offer a one-size-fits-all policy because we know every individual is different.
It Won't Cost an Arm and a Leg
If you are planning a snowboarding holiday, you're going to need the use of all your arms and legs. So rest assured one of our insurance policy wouldn’t cost you any of them. We do everything we can to keep our prices extremely affordable including controlling overheads, concentrating on younger travellers who are cheaper to insure, and by offering you an online platform for purchasing your policies. At the same time, we don't skimp on coverage or customer service.
At Downunder, we want your next snowboarding holiday to be completely worry free. That's why we work so hard to offer you such great coverage. We can offer you snowboarding insurance for trips as short as five days or, if you prefer, longer trips as well. If you are planning to be away for more than 45 days, we'd be happy to offer you a custom quote.
