People going on ski holidays this winter have been warned that a comprehensive insurance policy is vital if travellers wish to avoid expensive medical bills in case of injury.

The advice comes after insurance firm esure found that 18 per cent of people intend to go without travel cover in order to cut the cost of their holiday amid the credit crunch.

Mike Pickard, spokesperson for the company, said this is not a good idea since injury may be more likely on activity holidays, plus medical facilities may not be equal in all parts of the world.

“Any winter sports holiday – no matter how long the trip or how close to home – comes with a certain element of risk. It’s crucial to ensure you’re fully covered if you have an accident on the slopes,” he remarked.

People wishing to take ski holidays to Australia may wish to consider booking flights to Melbourne, from which they can reach resorts around the Alpine and Mt Buffalo national parks.
