Fit to Ski?
Every year thousands of people look forward to their upcoming Ski Holiday. However, a new ‘Get Fit for Ski’ Campaign has been created by ABTA, which highlights the importance of travel insurance. It also includes warm up exercises and Health and Safety information to protect skiers from unwanted accidents this year.
Research by ABTA found that that only 41% of holiday makers check that their insurance actually covers them for activates such as skiing, paragliding or water sports before partaking in them. The research found that travellers are effectively putting themselves at great risk while abroad, especially whilst competing in potentially dangerous sports and activities, for example a broken leg can be extremely costly to treat abroad.
Please note, Holidaysafe's online prices automatically include a 15% discount against our Customer Service Centre prices.
To avoid these kinds of situations, ABTA suggest warm up exercises, before the average 4-6 hour ski or snow boarding session. They also advise research into the correct equipment and investing in top quality travel insurance that will protect you specifically for your chosen activities.
