Check policy before going on skiing holidays

Ski News brought to you by SkiWeekends.com, specialists in Bargain Ski Holidays and Ski Holidays in France.

A third of people would try out a winter sport before checking that they are covered by their travel insurance, new research has found.

Insurance company esure said that 13 per cent would assume that all sports were included in their policy when heading on skiing holidays.

However, the firm urged people to check their travel insurance, as many will not be covered for winter sports and others will not protect them for additional activities, like off piste skiing.

The survey also found that 13 per cent of people have been injured while on skiing holidays or other adventure sport breaks.

Mike Pickard, head of travel insurance at esure, said: "If you are tempted to try something new it's crucial to have quality travel insurance and to read the small print to check what you're covered for."

It follows a warning from MoneySupermarket.com, which told those heading on skiing holidays to consider travel insurance an essential item.
