Cover Levels

Cover Levels

£500 - Winter Sports Equipment

Winter sports equipment is often very expensive to purchase and maintain, therefore having suitable cover to protect it from being lost, stolen or damaged is key when looking for a travel insurance policy. Both owned and hired winter sports equipment is covered under the Alpha Wintersports policy giving you complete freedom to simply enjoy the slopes to the max, without worrying about the consequences of footing the bill should anything happen.

£2million - Personal Liability

If you are held legally liable for any event during the lifetime of your travel insurance policy, Alpha is there to help with £2million personal liability cover. Whether you have caused injury or illness to another person or even damage to trip accommodation, having peace of mind in place in the form of a holiday insurance policy can help lessen the potential financial burden.

£10 million - Emergency Medical Expenses

One of the highest claimed for items is medical expenses; whether for less-serious incidents such as doctors’ visits for check-ups and medication, to more serious cases such as being hospitalised as an in-patient, avalanches or mountain rescue. Rest assured that wherever you are in the world, Alpha offers medical cover up to £10million as well as a Doctor managed 24 hour emergency medical helpline to offer you help and advice when you need it most, no matter the time of day or night.
