Ski Seasoniare Insurance FAQs

Is Repatriation covered with these policies ?

All of our policies cover Repatriation back to your home country. This benefit is part of Medical Expenses. Some of the reasons for Repatriation is due to medical treatment not being available in your location or the Emergency Assistance Company considers it to be necessary for you to be returned to your home for further treatment. You should check the full Terms and Conditions of the policy that you are purchasing for any exclusions and details of Repatriation cover.

What happens if I require Mountain Rescue and Air Ambulance ?

In most cases we recommend that the Emergency Assistance Company is contacted either at the time of the incident or shortly there after, so that they can approve the Mountain Rescue and Air Ambulance. This may not be possible in some cases, if it is a life threating rescue for example.

We suggest that you provide your policy details and contact details of the Emergency Assistance Company to those your are travelling with or your employer if you are working in the resort so they can call on your behalf if necessary.

Do these policies provide cover for Personal Liability and Personal Accident ?

The policies we offer through this specialist provider do cover Personal Liability and Personal Accident. You should read carefully the Terms and Conditions of the policy, regarding these benefits as for example one of the exculsions is that using any motorised vehicle such as a Snow Mobile excludes cover for Personal Liability.

Can I get a Ski Seasonaire policy if I have already left the United Kingdom ?

We can offer Seasonaire Travel Insurance if you have already left the United Kingdom. We can also cover other EU Residents who are leaving their home country and will be taking part in a Ski Season in another European country or even another country such as Japan or Canada. You will need to call us for a quote.

Is my Ski / Snowboarding Equipment covered whilst I am away ?

It is covered under Personal Baggage whilst it is in transit and being stored, but not whilst it is being used. If you would like cover for your Ski Equipment (owned or rented) whilst you are Skiing or Snowboarding, you can get a quote online at our Ski Season page.

Am I covered for my Ski Pack, Piste Closure, Avalanche Closure on this policy ?

With this policy, there is no cover for these sections. Again if you want cover for this, you will need to get a quote through our Ski Season page.

What is included in Gadget Cover ?

This is only available with the Longstay policy. We will cover Mobile Phones, iPads / Tablets, Cameras, Laptops, Portable Gaming Consules and many more. Thye must be under 3 years old and with the correct proof of ownership / purchase.

Your Gadget will be covered up to a maximum of £1000 for Accidental Damage, Theft, Accidental Loss (except Laptops) Breakdown and Liquid Damage. If the Gadget can not be repaired due to damage it will be replaced by a similar Gadget or you may be given a cash settlement to allow you to purchase another Gadget in the country you are in.
