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 :-)
durr, I forgot...
(to be a proper snow-head, all official-like!)

, it's one thing buying £1M policy, it's quite another collecting it.
You only find out what your policy is
worth once you submit a claim and when some very clever people employed by the insurance company go over it with a very fine tooth comb. And start digging out some clauses and appendages, burried so deeply in the contract, or verbalised in such a way you never even knew they existed.*
*As you found out to your detriment when you submitted your only claim, and ended up collecting ~ £100 less than you thought you would.
You are very proud that you haven't missed a flight in 40 years (I haven't in 33) - but it counts for nothing. The only thing that matters is the
flight you catch, or the next holiday you come back from without having sustained any injuries... Or, collecting your luggage at the destination, without any damage/loss (that you would love to claim for - but the high excess doesn't make it feasible).
So yes, finally we agree on something - that's why one buys insurance - because one never knows.
That was the point of my previos post (when I remarked on how much money you had "wasted" over the past 40 years), but it went unnoticed (or was it ignored)?
Will you now tell us what this "very expensive" insurance policy is, that you purchase, so that I can climb on my high horse (like you did), multiply that amount by 33 and scoffingly tell you how much I would have spent extra over the years (when my cheap-ish policy does the some job)?
Shall I now start deriding your decision to pay "very high" insurance premum (whatever that may be), in the hope that you
one day collect a £1M, which may never happen - not least owing to defensive clauses built in?
What is it with the internet and people feeling the need to poke fun at other people's decisions?!
But you are correct you can give your money to whoever you wish
I have not "given" my money to anyone. I have
a service (which, incidently, paid for itself many times over).
