Trip Insurance.  What is it?  Do I need it?

Your ski vacation is a significant investment.  Like many things in life, sometimes things can, and do, go wrong.  To reduce the financial risks asociatated with vacation travel, there are companies that offer "Trip Insurance".  This type of insurance covers unanticipated expenses related to trip cancellations, delays, accidents requiring medical care, etc...  The coverage usually costs about 5 or 6% of the total trip.

The Red Eye Ski and Snowboard Club does not sell trip insurance as part of their group trips, but we urge each participant to consider the value of insurance coverage as it pertains to each trip and the unique risks associated with that trip.
