Why standard Ski Insurance is not enough!
A common question asked by those searching for ski instructor course cover! Here is a breakdown of why a standard winter sports policy would not cover you for a course.
- The main thing here is curtailment cover while doing the course. Ski instructor courses last from 5 to 14 weeks and cost anything between £5,000 to £15,000. Should you be injured within the course duration and cannot complete it ( but you have already paid for it ), then you can claim back part or all (if it is a cancellation claim )
- Most standard winter sports policies will only cover you for recreational skiing on piste; when taking part in Ski instructor courses, you will learn to instruct in all ski genres and will spend some of the course off-piste skiing, with intense ski training and avalanche awareness learning.
- Believe it or not, ski instructor courses are in one of the higher categories when getting travel insurance coverage; this is because you are learning to teach others how to ski, these may be beginner skiers, and you also are skiing in a group with other people learning how to ski instruct, this leads to more risk of an injury happening.
- These courses are pretty intense. You cannot just stay on the chalet for a few hours before heading skiing. You must be at the course at 9 am and often do not finish until 5 pm.
Does The Policy cover my Pre-Paid Course Fees?
Our policy is designed explicitly for Ski Instructor courses and the fees that come with it. We know it's not a cheap process; this policy covers Cancellation and Curtailment up to £5,000 when taking Parts A and B cover.
Cancellation: If you were to fall sick or get injured before your trip / Instructor Course and you were no longer able to travel, this would cover up to £5,000 for any pre-paid course fees, Flight, and Accommodation that come with most ski instructor course inclusive packages.
Curtailment: If you were to fall sick or get injured during the course and could no longer continue your ski instructor course.
If your course fees are higher than the £5,000 cover, then we have additional Top Up Cancellation cover, which will cover up to £50,000.
When to do a Ski Instructor course?
Part of your Gap Year - If you have just finished school and are not ready for University and love winter sports, then it's a great course to do,
You are going for a Season and looking to work after you have finished the course for the rest of the Season, you can work as a ski instructor or do other work, but you have qualified ( s)
You want to pursue ski instructing as a career.
You want to travel for a few years and gain your ski instructing qualifications so you can work in different countries like Japan, Canada, France, and Switzerland. NB: make sure your qualification allows you to work in these countries as they have additional requirements depending on what course you have completed.
Change of career. I am fed up with the 9 to 5 and am looking for a job outdoors, so gaining the qualifications on a ski instructing course is a great start.
