* Emergency Medical Expenses including, amongst other costs; ambulance charges and repatriation

* Cancellation of your trip or Curtailment cutting short your trip

* Personal Liability to include, amongst other liabilities; damage caused by your (or your party’s) negligence to the property in which you are staying and may not include a clause which restricts actions being taken against a travelling companion other than family and must include contractual liability of the party leader for the actions of his party

* Travel and transfer delays which must include amongst other costs; additional costs incurred in the event of a delay

* The policy must include the activities you are likely to do and in particular skiing and snowboarding on and off piste with or without a guide

* The policy must cover the period from the date of booking to the last day of your trip and may not have a clause allowing the insurer to cancel the policy nor vary the terms usually following medical reasons unless there has been individual underwriting with specific terms.

Note:- There are of course other sections to a Travel Insurance policy such as Baggage and ski equipment, Legal Expenses, Personal Accident and so on.
