DOGTAG 100% Proof Travel Insurance is well known for providing Snowsports Travel Insurance; in fact the guys that launched Dogtag have spent their lives deeply involved with snowsports and we started the company by launching our first product specifically as a snowsports travel insurance product.
Make sure you to select Winter sports cover on your way through the quote process. And remember, there are several types of Snowsports from simple in-resort skiing & snowboarding to heli- and cross-country skiing, each of which is rated differently for cover. So have a browse through our Sports page.

Single Trip Snowsports Cover:
For Single Trip cover for a trip of 10 to 31 days, you can select to cover the whole period simply by clicking on the Winter Sports option when you go for a quote..
If you're traveling for a longer period of several weeks or months and want to add winter sports cover, you can add winter sports cover to all or only part of the period for cover. Just select the overall dates of travel and then select the period within that when you'll need skiing or snowboarding cover.<
Annual Multi-trip Snowsports cover:
This is one of our best sellers for people who take two or more trips per year. An annual Multi- trip policy will cover you for unlimited trips of up to 31 days per trip (or 62 days if you upgrade) and you can add up to 17, 24 or 31 days of winter sports cover so you can take a skiing or snowboarding holiday as well as a summer holiday.
Types of 'Mountain' Winter Sports Cover:
As well as covering the simple things like in-resort skiing and snowboarding, Dogtag can also provide Winter Sports travel insurance for things like Off-pist skiing and snowboarding, Helicopter Skiing & Snowboarding and Ski Touring & Mountaineering and Freeride.
As well as the Winter Sports travel insurance upgrade, some of the above winter sports require an upgrade to a higher level of sport cover so make sure you check the Sports list to see which level you'll need (Sport, Sport+ or Extreme).
Other Sports that also require Winter Sports Travel Insurance:
- Cross Country Skiing
- Glacier Skiing or Glacier Walking
- Ice Climbing
- Kite Skiing/Snowboarding
- Ski Randonee
Do I Need A Helmet?
We know that some insurers make the wearing of a helmet mandatory in order to qualify for ski or snowboarding cover. At Dogtag, we don't take this line. Statistics so far seem to indicate that most injuries are experienced in the lower limbs and torso and that head injuries are in a very small minority. We also think that our customers are mature enough and safety conscious enough to know when special equipment is necessary for their own safety - so we leave it up to you to decide if you need a helmet or not. For what it's worth, our own personal experience is that a helmet is most useful when
- it's damned freezing - helmets are warmer
- when you're skiing fast or steep - the full 200 meter face-drag is more fun with a helmet
- skiing in trees. Trees are hard, heads are not; trees win every time: sonny Bono - 0; Trees - 1.
