Adequate and appropriate Travel Insurance is essential for your protection. Everyone that travels with us must have either the Travel Insurance Policy we offer which is arranged by Rush Insurance and Underwritten by Travel Insurance Facilities or another policy giving at least the same level of cover.
It is your responsibility to ensure that the insurance cover you purchase is adequate and appropriate for your particular needs. It is essential that before purchasing the insurance policy that we offer you read and understand the policy wording. If you do decide to purchase your own travel insurance it is a condition of the booking that you must forward a copy of your policy to us as soon as possible, you can do this by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, please note this inbox is not regularly monitored and is used to archive relevant insurance policies for our trippers.
IF YOU ARE A UK CITIZEN, PLEASE ENSURE YOU HAVE AN EHIC TO TRAVEL WITH – The European Health Insurance Card (EHIC).
The EHIC can be used to cover any necessary medical treatment due to either an accident or illness within the European Economic Area (EEA). The EHIC entitles the holder to state-provided medical treatment within the country they are visiting. It is the individual’s responsibility to ensure they have an EHIC.
Please go to the EHIC website or any post office and take your National Insurance number or NHS number to complete the application. At this current time, EHIC cards are still valid and are expected to still be valid for a period of time after BREXIT in March of 2019, we do however recommend checking the status of EHIC cards prior to your departure.
The insurance that you purchase through us is non-refundable unless we consider it appropriate to refund the insurance premiums paid based on the terms and conditions of this booking.
Please note, it is your responsibility to make sure you have the correct details of your insurance policy on your ski trip. Reps are there to help but you are fully responsible for your safety and belongings, you agreed this at the time of booking.
We strongly recommend you purchase travel insurance to cover medical costs, third-party liability and cancellation charges. With this in mind, we have designed a policy that is suitable for our holidays and which can be purchased as part of your booking.
Please read our insurance Terms of Business which includes important information about our insurance services.
