It’s very important to have the correct level of winter sports insurance before leaving for your holiday with us.
When purchasing your insurance policy please make sure your policy is specific for winter sports and if you are a keen off-piste skier then you should enquire more carefully into this, as a number of insurance companies don't offer cover due to the nature of it.We recommend Fogg Insurance http://www.fogginsure.co.uk
Formerly the E11, you can obtain this free card easily online before your stay (if you’re a UK citizen). This card entitles the holder to the appropriate medical treatment provided by the relevant state within the country visited, and will pay for only a proportion of the costs of emergency medical treatment in National Hospitals in the EU. Be aware that this will not cover all costs and is to compliment travel and winter sports insurance, which will cover the whole risk.www.ehic.org.uk
Carre Neige Insurance
Carre Neige can be bought as an optional part of your ski pass (2.8€ per day for an adult). Do note Carre Neige insurance covers you for transport off the mountain, either on or off-piste. If you show your card to the pisteurs they will take the policy number and their costs will be met by the insurance - you have no further involvement. Once the pisteurs have dropped you at the doctors this cover ends. Carre Neige is not a full insurance policy - it's a top-up cover designed to act in tandem with your state (EHIC) or private health insurance. It will reimburse only those costs not covered by your main insurance. Comprehensive winter sports insurance should cover you without the Carre Neige, but do check your policy before travelling.www.carreneige.com
