Seasoniare 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 thereafter so that they can approve the Mountain Rescue and Air Ambulance.

This may not be possible in some cases if it is a life threatening rescue.

We suggest that you provide your policy details and contact details of the Emergency Assistance Company to those you 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 exclusions 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 under a different Policy.

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: (44) 1273 773 017
