  • Winter sports cover offers specialist medical treatment and could protect your ski or snowboarding equipment

Travel insurance tips

  • Read the small print of your policy, as there might be some policy exclusions (you can preview terms and conditions before purchasing so you know exactly what you're getting with your travel policy)
  • Check how much your excess is, as it might not be worth claiming for a camera that is worth £100 if the excess is £150
  • Report your items lost, stolen or damaged within 24 hours of the incident (most insurers ask for a written police report for proof)
