Travel insurance 'can cover skiing'

Some travel insurance policies will already cover travellers for skiing, but many people do not realise this and often end up taking out extra cover, it has been claimed.

According to one expert, there are a number of standard travel insurance policies that will cover policyholders if they decide to go skiing, but many do not read the small print and think they need additional cover.

As a result, many skiers could be paying out far more in winter sports travel insurance than they need to every year and should instead make sure they read the small print and search for travel insurance policies that are relevant to their activities.

A spokesman for InsureandGo confirmed: "Not a lot of people are aware that [skiing] is covered on a lot of policies already."

The comments follow recent figures from the Ski Club of Great Britain's annual Snowsports Analysis report, which revealed the total UK snowsports market is now at 1.27 million people in the UK.

France continues to dominate the UK snowsports market with a 43 per cent share, the report found.
