Winter sports insurance 'essential' on ski breaks

Winter sports insurance is essential for anyone heading on a ski break over the coming months, one expert has advised.

Asia Yasir, spokeswoman for esure travel, noted that more and more resorts are now offering high-adrenaline sports, such as ice-lake diving, off-piste snowboarding and bobsleighing.

However, Ms Yasir said: "Worryingly, a third (34 per cent) of UK adults would try out more extreme sports without checking to see if they were covered by their travel insurance."

She pointed out that 13 per cent of people assume that all activities offered at ski resorts are covered as standard by their insurance policy, but said that exclusions, restrictions or limitations often apply.

Her comments were echoed by Nick Kirwan, assistant director of health and protection at the Association of British Insurers, who recently said that although ski holidays are great fun, people should ensure they have adequate cover in place in case of an accident.
