And even if you already have some kind of insurance, know that mountain rescue is not free and can generate very heavy costs if special means are put in place to help you in the event of an accident..

Care support varies from 300 to 350 euros for an intervention on the slopes. A price to which must be added the cost of the ambulance (between 150 and 180 euros) which will take you to the hospital or to the general practitioner in town.

If the accident takes place off-piste, the intervention price can reach between 500 and 600 euros, not counting the ambulance.

For a few extra euros you can benefit from insurance that will cover all evacuation costs in the event of an accident.

WEDZE TIPS

Before rushing into a ski insurance, find out about your insurance contracts to which you already subscribe. Some home insurance contracts cover rescue assistance on the slopes and repatriation in the event of an accident.

1- DAY INSURANCES

When purchasing a one-day ski pass, you will always be offered insurance for a few euros more. We often tell ourselves at the time that this "unnecessary expense" is not worth it ... but you could quickly regret it in the event of an accident!

So think carefully when purchasing your package!

2- INSURANCES FOR YOUR HOLIDAYS

Are you going away for a week's winter sports with friends or family? Which promises to be a great convivial moment!

Opt for an insurance that will cover you for your entire stay: accident on and off-piste, last-minute cancellation due to illness, theft of your ski equipment ... for around fifteen euros per person, you can go away with peace of mind.

And with climatic disturbances, some insurances even cover the reimbursement of your ski holiday in the event of a lack of snow when you arrive.

3- ANNUAL INSURANCES

Do you ski and do other mountain sports all year round? Opt for annual insurance that will cover your evacuation and repatriation costs, even abroad! For around € 25 per year, it is essential for your safety and will cover all in the event of an accident:

- Medical costs - Rescue and search costs
- Individual couvrage in the event of death or incapacity
- Repatriation, even from the other side of the world!

DID YOU KNOW?

We often forget it:but credit cards also allow you to compensate damaged ski equipment or cancel a rental booking. They can also cover emergency services in the event of an accident on the slopes. Other advantages:most of the time, they protect the whole family. Provided of course, that your purchases and bookings have been made with the credit card in question.

Check with your bank!
