Important InformationUnder the ABI Code of Practice, we are required to draw to your attention certain important features of your policy as follows.
POLICY DOCUMENT: you should read the document carefully. It gives you full details of what is and what is not covered and the conditions of the cover. Cover will vary from policy to policy and Insurer to Insurer.
CONDITIONS, EXCLUSIONS & WARRANTIES: conditions and exclusions will apply to individual sections of your policy whilst general exclusions, conditions & warranties will apply to the whole of your policy.
HEALTH: your policy may contain restrictions regarding pre-existing medical problems concerning the health of the people traveling and of the people upon whose health the trip will depend. You are advised to read our policy carefully. Please bear in mind that in France rescue services for skiers are chargeable and payment must be made on site following a rescue. The rescue service includes locating casualties, properly securing them in order to remove them from the slopes, transporting them to a medical practice, returning their ski equipment and compiling a detailed report of the rescue operation. An example of prices for rescue services is as follows (based on Les Deux Alpes): - Adjacent zone, unaccompanied............................................. 100 € - Assistance and evacuation by ski lift ......................................255 € - Assistance and evacuation by helicopter..................................649 € minimum depending on destination
DANGEROUS SPORTS OR PASTIMES: if you are going to take part in dangerous sports or pastimes where there is a high risk of injury, check that your policy covers you.
PROPERTY CLAIMS: these claims are paid based on the value of the goods at the time you lose or damage them and not on a "new for old" or replacement cost basis.
POLICY LIMITS: most sections of your policy have limits on the amount the insurer will pay under that section. Some sections also include other specific limits, for example: for any one item or for valuables in total. You are advised to check your policy if you intend taking expensive items with you.
POLICY EXCESSES: under most sections of the policy claims will be subject to an excess. This means that you will be responsible for paying the first part of the claim. The amount you have to pay is the excess.
REASONABLE CARE: you need to take all reasonable care to protect yourself and your property.
COMPLAINTS: your insurance policy will have in it a complaints procedure which tells you what steps you can take if you wish to make a complaint.
"COOLING OFF" PERIOD: your policy contains a cooling off period during which you can return the policy and get a refund, if you have a justifiable reason for being dissatisfied with the cover that it provides.
Your policy is governed by the law in the country that you reside in within the United Kingdom, unless otherwise stated on your policy.
The identity of the insurer or insurers will be shown on the policy document.
