You’ve done it. You’ve planned the perfect group ski trip. You look forward to great days on the slopes and great evenings of devotionals and bonding with your youth group.
Excitement is building as the day of departure gets closer, but then the unthinkable happens. The flu sweeps through your group, and you’ve got a bunch of really sick kids on your hands. They’re in no condition to ride a bus for 12 hours to a high elevation and then ski for a few days.
Those sick kids also ponied up several hundred dollars for this trip. It’s too late for the resort to rebook the rooms. There’s no refund happening this late in the game.
This is where group ski trip insurance comes in. This scenario impacts an entire group, but even when bad luck causes one person to cancel at the last minute, money is wasted. And trip insurance doesn’t just insure trip cancellation due to illness. Take a look at what it can cover:
- Trip cancellation or interruption
- Medical evacuation
- Medical expense and transportation
- Lost or stolen baggage
- Car collision coverage
- And more, all depending on your circumstances and the plan you choose
Ski Daddy recommends Travel Guard insurance for our groups. We don’t sell the insurance ourselves, but our groups purchase directly from Travel Guard. There are several policies to choose from and as a group leader you can purchase insurance for the entire group and build it into the package price, or you can leave it up to the individuals in your group to purchase their own policy if they choose.
It’s important to understand the terms of your travel insurance policy – exactly what’s covered, how you can make a claim, and any time limitations on the coverage. But a little extra legwork now can save a lot of disappointment later.
However you decide to handle the insurance, this is just another way you can reduce the stress of planning a group ski trip. Let Ski Daddy show you how it can be a stress free process!
