Expatriates and travellers should double check their worldwide medical insurance after recent figures have revealed that the average cost of winter sports-related claims has doubled in the past two years.
According to Sainsbury's Finance, claims have risen by 47.6 per cent. Furthermore, the number of winter sports injuries occurring in the US and Europe this past winter were up by eight per cent and four per cent respectively when compared to the previous season.
Stuart McKeggie, head of Sainsbury's Credit Cards, commented: "Even the most accomplished skiers and snowboarders can get themselves into a tricky spot, racking up huge medical bills from winter sports-related injuries."
Knee injuries were the most common injury from these sports, followed by shoulders and wrist and hands.
However, the most expensive injury relates to the pelvis. Damage done in the US resulted in a claim of £30,000 by one skier who had to be sent home with a medical escort.
