Athlete and Leisure Travel Insurance Supporting British Snowsports

If you are a member of GB Snowsport, Snowsport England and Snowsport Scotland  you will automatically benefit from Public Liability cover via your affiliation, which covers you anywhere in the world for activities recognised/approved by each respective organisation.

Please note that the Public Liability insurance received via your affiliation does not cover any insurances that link to a Travel insurance policy therefore if you require insurance for cancellation of flights, emergency medical expenses, medical evacuation, repatriation, loss of damage to ski equipment and baggage etc. This can now be obtained via Jackson Lee Underwriting.
