FCO Advice for Skiers & Snowboarders: Watch the Video


The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) have published a new video to help you stay safe on the slopes this winter.

The FCO’s Ski Safety Tips Include

  • Make sure you have travel insurance that provides cover for all of the winter sports activities you will be doing.
  • Get fit. If you are not physically prepared for the activities you will be doing you are more likely to have an accident.
  • Get the right equipment, including a well-fitting crash helmet and suitable clothing.
  • Don't forget sunscreen.  You can get sun burnt in winter, especially in the mountains.
  • Follow the International Ski Federation rules and guidance.
  • Make sure you have a valid European Health Insurance Card.
  • Alcohol and winter sports don't mix.

Ski insurance from £15.50 can provide a great deal on travel insurance for skiing and snowboarding with Medical & Repatriation Cover up to £10 Million (including piste recovery), cover for own ski equipment and pre-booked lift passes and lessons.
