WINTER TRAVEL INSURANCE
Anyone lucky enough to still be able to afford a trip on the piste this winter should ensure they factor in the appropriate level of insurance cover, The Sunday Business Post advises.
The newspaper provides an exhaustive piece about the kind of cover available and how much a punter is likely to pay to guard against mishaps that could arise – on and off the slopes.
Unexpected delays, medical expenses and stolen equipment are just some of the problems that can bedevil travel at this time of year for an active holiday abroad.
According to a recent AA survey, broken fingers are the most common injury cited in insurance claims and the same study also found that 7% didn’t have any travel insurance in place at all. In a separate survey, VHI discovered that just 35% of people had travel insurance.
Clearly, hurtling down a hill on two planks isn’t enough of an adrenaline rush for some people!
