If you are considering a trip to Italy during the winter, make sure you are covered whilst on the slopes!

With effect from 1st January 2022, anyone who wishes to ski in Italy will need to comply with new regulations that require all skiers take out insurance in order to be able to pay for any damage caused to third parties. The penalty for failure to do so will be from €100 to €150, in addition to the withdrawal of your ski pass. The rules came into force last spring, after the approval of Decree 40 of 2021, but take effect from the beginning of 2022.

The obligations apply not just to skiing, but also to snowboarding, sledding, telemark and all snow sports practices.

Not only do all of our Ski Club Travel Insurance products provide comprehensive medical cover, but they also provide liability insurance up to £2,000,000 for any legal expenses and legal liability for injury you cause to a person who is not a member of your family, household or employed by you. There is also further cover for any damages caused to any property, which does not belong to you and is not in your control. Full terms and conditions can be found within the policy wording.

This applies to the insurance provided as pat of Platinum Membership as well, meaning great value exceptional cover, on piste and off, is available in combination with your membership for the year.

If you are travelling abroad, it's important to take out appropriate travel insurance before you go. UK Government can be found here https://www.gov.uk/guidance/foreign-travel-insurance

Ski safe, ski with peace of mind.
