Make sure your covered for your ski / snowboarding snow holiday to Niseko! One of the most important things to consider when coming on a ski or snowboarding holiday to Niseko Japan is INSURANCE.

Low Cost Ski Insurance

It is a must for anyone who will be participating in any on mountain activities. Snowboarding, skiing, snowmobiling are considered an extreme sport, injuries can happen so easily even to the most experienced skier or snowboarder. Just in general walking around in icy and snowy conditions can cause injury.

I always make sure I have insurance. A few years ago I had the misfortune of breaking my leg while snowboarding and was thankful that I had cover. I was covered with 1 Cover  and they made the process of claiming and getting back to Australia a simple process and took care of all my travel arrangements and costs which was a great relief.

I was flown first class(one bonus to breaking your leg) back to Australia all my transport from Niseko to Sapporo Airport was arranged for me  with someone to meet me at all the airports with a wheel chair and assistance on hand. I was transferred from Brisbane airport to my home in private transport.

6 weeks later when I had my cast removed I was returned to Japan to recommence my trip. I was also refunded my lift ticket price as I had a season pass which I was no longer able to use. Once again really thankful I had the right cover to suit my needs.

Make sure you read your policy and get the best cover for you in case you do have an accident as medical in Niseko Japan is expensive and often if you have serious injury you will have to be moved to a larger hospital.

So make sure you are covered for the unexpected. Checkout the link and get a quote.
