Does life insurance cover skiing?

I’m getting quotes for life insurance and don’t know if skiing is included in the cover and would it pay out if i was to have an accident on the slopes? I can’t find much information about this online. Can you help?

How the insurers view extreme sports such as skiing

This is a very common question and there is often confusion as to whether a life insurance policy would pay out as a result of a skiing accident. For most people the extent of their skiing is solely for holiday purposes, maybe once or twice per year, and ‘on-piste’. If you fall within this category then there are certainly insurers on the market who will include skiing within the cover as standard.

How often and where you ski is important

If however you are skiing more regularly, maybe at a competitive level or in more dangerous locations (possibly ‘off-piste’), you could expect a different outcome, depending on the insurer. For anyone involved in this level of skiing you could be charged an additional premium, or may even have skiing excluded from cover.

Insurers will asses each situation and offer the best terms they are able to provide, but not all insurers will come to the same conclusion.

An adviser will be able to review the market for you based on your specific circumstances and ensure you get the best terms available.

Sam Carr provided a professional but enthusiastic service and helped make the whole process very straight forward. Goodness knows I have been through enough application forms recently. My insurance product was never going to be easy to find and I had been rejected on a number of other occasions through others ironically due to well managed common health conditions. I identified Drewberry in a last and disappointing trawl on th web to find someone that actually wanted to take on a difficult case like me. Some brokers wouldn't even consider me. When we applied for my first choice product Sam wasn't at all deterred by the long wait for my GP report or the final rejection that came back from the insurer, sadly I have become used to it. Within a day he had lined up the second choice and to my surprise he had hit the nail on the head and introduced me to the correct insurer and terms for my needs whilst nogotiating an excellent premium. I am extremely satisfied with what Sam has achieved for me and I would have no hesitation in recommending either him or Drewberry to friends, family and and business contacts. In the future, Drewberry will be my first point of contact. Many thanks!
