For more details regarding your ski and snow sports coverage take a look at some of our FAQ's below.  
  • Am I covered for skiing without purchasing Zoom's ski sports add-on?
  • No. If you are taking part in any kind of winter sports activity, you must purchase our ski and snow sports pack in the payment process to be covered.

  • What do I get when I purchase the ski add-on?
  • In order to be covered for winter sports including skiing, snowboarding, tobogganing or tubing (on groomed ski slopes) you must purchase our ski and snow sports pack. This pack cover provides cover for Unlimited overseas emergency medical and hospital expenses, $1,000 cover for piste closure, bad weather & avalanche, and $1,500 for loss or damage to your own snow sport equipment. You will also be covered for the value of any unused ski pass, ski hire or tuition fees (up to $750) following the loss or theft of your ski pass, or you being unable to ski following accident or illness.

  • What age limits apply to ski insurance policies with Zoom?
  • Zoom's ski and sports pack covers those travellers under the age of 69 only.

  • Are my skis covered? 
  • Yes you are covered up to $1,500 for loss or damage to your own snow sport equipment. However we do not cover for damage to your equipment while it is in use.

  • Can I buy ski cover for just a portion of my holiday?
  • Unfortunately not. Our ski and snow sports pack needs to be purchased for the entire duration of your trip.

  • Am I covered for helicopter evacuation off the slopes?
  • Yes, if you have a serious accident on the slopes, we will pay for helicopter evacuation to get you to the nearest hospital.

  • Am I covered if I ski or snowboard off-piste?
  • No, Zoom only covers you when you are skiing within resort boundaries with a licensed instructor, not for backcountry winter sports of any kind.

  • Are my skis covered if they are stolen?
  • Yes. Zoom covers you up to $1,500 for theft of your ski gear as long as you have not left it unattended and have taken proper care of it in the first place.

  • Am I covered for the whole season?
  • No, you are only insured to ski in ski season: this would be December 1 and April 15 for travel to the Northern Hemisphere, or between 15 June and 30 September for travel to the Southern Hemisphere.

Like all travel insurance plans, they don't cover everything. Just the unexpected.
You should read your policy document (PDS) carefully to ensure you select the cover that is best for you.

You can add optional cover for extras such as Rental Vehicle Excess if you are hiring a car, Sports Activities Pack if you’re feeling adventurous and Snow Cover if you are hitting the slopes.  These can be added during the quote process.
