Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Currently reading through an existing thread which seems to cover more or less the same stuff. Prob. best place to copy in whatever we come up with:

Drawn a bit of a blank on the travel insurance side of things. I've read through the thread above and the Which? article that @BoardieK has helpfully included. This narrowed down the search to a handful of companies that offer medical cover even when travelling against FCO guidance: Nationwide, Insurefor, Battleface, Holiday Extras.

Nationwide: only available to those who have a bank account or mortgage with them so could not pursue further
Insurefor: season-long cover available from approx £500 to £1,000 depending on level of cover which also drives the winter sports option of a trip up to 14 days or 21 days; limited off-piste cover. Some age limits for Covid.
Holiday Extras: claim to offer Covid 'bubble' insurance but I found their site too confusing and gave up. Maybe one for somebody else to follow up?
Battleface: Covid cover if you are under 59; winter sports excluded. £900 for the season.

On the last one, they specialise in providing insurance for travel to war zones. We haven't been at war with France for a while but hey, the way Brexit negotiations are going, who knows... All a sign of the times! The approximate quotes are for a 58yo with no pre-exiting.

So my current conclusion is that to get full cover under the travel insurance route would require 'double insuring': MPI, for example, for the skiing and someone like Insurefor for the Covid.

A second pair of eyes on all this would be very welcome; I could very easily have misread / misinterpreted stuff and got it all hopelessly wrong. I read a report the other day that said, based on the stats we have so far, that catching C-19, at whatever age, basically doubles your existing risk of dying. If an insurer is expected to pick up that kind of risk I guess we should not be surprised at a doubling of costs.

Will cross-post the above on the other thread. Should we pursue it here or the other one?

@Mark1863, @bobski62, I’ve moved over to the other Annual Insurance thread as not to clog this one up.

Oh dear. Thin end of the wedge the way things are looking. Many ski resorts may well be half empty of businesses this time next year.
My home town shows a high % of the population are not following the advice and I get more pessimistic about skiing daily
