    Going on a skiing holiday? Our winter sports insurance covers your ski equipment if it’s lost or damaged. It also covers the cost of your unused ski packs, including ski school fees, lift passes and hire cost for ski equipment, if you need to cancel or cut short your trip. And, if your pre-booked ski resort closes due to lack of, or excess of snow, or an avalanche, we’ll give you £20 a day (£100 in total) for you to travel to an alternative ski resort.
