Alpine Elements Insurance
A Specialist Policy
We believe your enjoyment and safety are of paramount importance when travelling with us. It is therefore a requirement when booking one of our holidays that you have adequate Active Sports Insurance Cover before you travel, especially if partaking in hazardous activities such as mountain biking, sailing, skiing or rafting. Many policies do not provide an appropriate level of cover, and so Alpine Elements have partnered with Endsleigh to develop a bespoke policy that is specifically designed for you whilst partaking on our holidays. This policy is available to both UK and non-UK residents and will cover trips in Europe. See “Your Responsibility” below.
If you are in the process of booking an Alpine Elements Holiday or have already booked you may want to consider what level of insurance protection you have in place in case the worst were to happen. As a customer of Alpine Elements we would always recommend you purchase adequate and fit for purpose travel insurance. Unlike many travel insurance policies the Alpine Elements policy provides full cover for activities such as Winter Sports, Mountain Biking and much more.
Cover Against Cancellation
Taking out your travel insurance at the time of booking your trip is a really good idea as cover for pre-departure cancellation starts from the policy issue date, that is, when you have paid for the policy. This means you’ll have cover to recoup your costs if you have to cancel your trip for an insured reason such as illness or serious accident preventing you from travelling.
How much does it cost?
The below premiums are based on either per person or couple / family rates, cover only within Europe and also include IPT (insurance premium tax). If you are not compeletly satisfied, you can request a full refund of this insurance within 14 days (or departure date if sooner)
Please use the Winter / Extreme policy for Activities such as: Rafting, Canyoning, Hydrospeeding, Skiing & snowboarding, Via Ferrata. If you wish to view the full list of these extreme activities see the Extreme Activity List.

When should I purchase the policy?
You can purchase insurance at any point up until your departure date, however we strongly recommend that you book it when you book your holiday, so that it will cover you in the event of insured reasons for cancellation such as illness or an accident preventing you from travelling.
You are required to take all reasonable care to protect yourself and your property and to act as though you are insured. Please be sure you tell Alpine Elements or your insurers about anything which may affect your cover, including any pre-existing health and medical conditions. It is your responsibility to check your policy documents for accuracy, and that you are fully covered. The Alpine Elements policy has proven to suit most of our client’s requirements, however please research our policy and cover fully, to ensure that it will suit all of your individual needs. We offer the Alpine Elements policy in good faith, but we cannot guarantee that it will cover against every eventuality or requirement that you may have.
