Important Information

You must read your policy documents carefully to ensure that the cover provided is suitable for your wants and needs. There is a 14-day cooling off period, during which you may cancel your policy for a full refund of all premiums paid, if the insurance provided as part of our Platinum Membership does not meet your demands and needs. Otherwise, our standard terms and conditions apply.

Our Platinum Membership includes Activity Pack 1 as standard under the policy - this includes skiing/snowboard, off piste, without a guide and outside of resort boundaries, as well as heliskiing, catskiing, touring and telemarking. For more details, please see the policy wording available above.

We are only able to offer Platinum on a European basis with no additional Activity Packs included online via the Ski Club Website. Should you wish to take out or extend your policy to worldwide cover (inc. USA, Canada & Caribbean), or to include additional activity packs, please give the memberships team a call on 0208 410 2015.

You may need to declare medical conditions to our insurance providers to ensure that appropriate cover is available. Please read your policy documents carefully to understand exactly what may be required of you. Please contact the medical screening team on 0330 660 0749 for more information. This can be done either before or after you complete the joining or upgrade process.

Please be aware that there is no cover under any section of the policy provided as part of Platinum Membership for travel in relation to a destination to which the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office has advised against all or all but essential travel.


Winter Sports Days

The insurance provided as part of our Platinum Membership provides cover for up to 45 winter sports days in one year, of which 24 can be taken on any one single trip. This is alongside out separate maximum trip duration of 31 days, regardless of activities pursued during this time.

We are able to offer extensions to these limits, including multi-trip extensions of both winter sports days and general trip length, and our 5 Month Single-Trip extension, perfect for seasonnaires working or living in the mountains, 

Please contact the Membership team for more information on 0208 410 2015.


Travel within the UK

The insurance provided as part of Platinum Membership includes cover for some travel within the United Kingdom (inc. Isle of Man). Trips from the UK (inc. Isle of Man) to the Channel Islands and vice versa are considered as "European" and therefore fall under the normal scope of the policy

Trips are considered as insured if they are for two nights or more and in pre-booked accommodation.

Please note there is no cover for emergency medical expenses, including mountain rescue and as a result of winter sports, as these services are provided free at the point of use within the UK.

 

Non-UK Residents (inc. Republic of Ireland)

Please be aware that we are only able to offer Ski Club Travel Insurance Policies, including our Ski Club Platinum Membership, to those resident in the UK, Isle of Man or Channel Islands. 

In a departure from previous years, please note that as of December 2020 we are no longer able to offer our policies to those resident in the Republic of Ireland. We apologise for any disappointment felt in this matter.

EHIC & GHIC Cards

Following the UK's departure from the European Union, you may be eligible for reciprocal healthcare whilst travelling in Europe under one of the following schemes:

EHIC (old) - if you hold a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) from before 1 January 2021, this may continue to be used until its expiry date to access reciprocal healthcare arrangements across the EU and Switzerland.

GHIC - the Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC) has been rolled out to replace the old EHIC in the EU and Switzerland. This is a direct replacement of the EHIC (old) for UK nationals resident in the UK.

EHIC (new) - the new European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) has been rolled out to replace the old EHIC in the EU and Switzerland. This scheme is for EU nationals living in the UK eligible for healthcare provision under the NHS.

Please note, the GHIC and EHIC schemes do not replace travel insurance for emergency care.

For more information on these schemes, and to apply for a new GHIC or EHIC card, please see the NHS website below.
