Insurance is one of the few things we don’t offer in our packages. The reason is, that we’re not an insurance company ourselves, and policies vary by individual.

With everything that is currently happening in the World, insurance is going to be more complicated than ever before.  It’s not all doom and gloom though, and as we move forward so are the insurance providers. Many companies now offer comprehensive COVID cover for illness and subsequent cancellations. Below are links to some insurance providers, who we feel offer suitable packages for Instructor Courses and are worth contacting to discuss options.

Snowboard or ski instructor course insurance is a prerequisite in our terms and conditions, so clients taking part in any of our training programmes must have adequate insurance. Air tickets will not be issued until we have full details of your policy.

Ask Questions

There are so many providers out there all providing packages for different nationalities. Do your research, ask questions and check that you’re covered, don’t risk the cheapest option without thoroughly reading their policy and asking the right questions:
How long am I covered skiing/boarding?
Am I covered for a Course?
Can I work as an Instructor?
What is your Covid policy?
What happens if I come home for a period?
Do you want your money back? Unfortunately, in most circumstances we won’t refund anything if it’s 8 weeks or less before your departure; this is where your insurance comes in. So think about what you are willing to risk and get the suitable level of cover you’re happy with.
If you have any questions please contact us! However, we are not insurance providers, so legally can not recommend a policy.
