People heading away on winter sports holidays in the near future need to give consideration to the amount of cover they need, one expert on the subject has advised.

Mike Powell, insight analyst for general insurance at Defaqto, said that travel insurance can be a "minefield" for people heading away, as there are so many different types of cover.

His comments followed the publication of research by Defaqto which found that there is a great degree of variation between travel insurance policies in terms of the features they offer, with only 11 per cent providing a single item limit of £350 or more.

"There are so many differentiators in a travel insurance policy and people really need to take a little bit of time to look at what is available in the market and make sure that it fits their needs," Mr Powell explained.

He added that people need to consider which possessions they are taking away on ski holidays and other trips and how much can be recouped if these items are lost.
