insurance and snowboard insurance- for experienced riders

Whether going for a season or a week, if you're on the mountain - you need to be insured (the alternative is the risk of a very big bill).

Ski InsuranceTwo excellent choices that we have picked out to make your life easier are Ski and the new seasonal insurance policy from The Ski Club of Great Britain.

Both companies offer well-priced, value for money policies, with a wide choice of cover and options, depending on whether you are looking for just medical or equipment cover.

Seasonal Insurance
Anyone heading out without a job or wanting to top up your employer insurance (make sure you check the details of what is included in any policy offered by your employer), must get seasonal insurance. Ski Insurance have a small price advantage, but the Ski Club of Great Britain policy covers all activies such as playing in the snowpark, heliskiing and parapenting - activities that are often excluded on other policies.

Annual Insurance
Experienced and regular riders should get an Annual Policy, which offers anything from 17 days' ski/board cover a year. Again Annual Insurance has a price advantage

Weekly Insurance
There are many weekly policies available in the UK. We've found that Ski-Insurance is a competitive, robust policy that offers a lot of choice and are very happy to recommend them.

NB - A 14 day money back guarantee applies to all of these policies (prior to travel)
