OK, so there is some flexibility and some decisions that only you can make. Essentially what you need is top ski instructor course insurance that will cover you during your course period with medical cover and for your course fees (cancellation and curtailment cover for your costs).

Having said that, most of our students that go on to work after their course using our Job Guarantee, generally opt for a full season policy. This will cost a little more but will cover you and your possessions for the full time you’re away from home. It is important to feel confident and secure should anything unexpected happen to you.

No. Once you are employed by the ski school you will be covered by their policy when you are teaching, and normally on days off too. This will cover you medically (to a certain level which varies between employers) and also for liability when teaching.

Each Insurer will offer different levels and inclusions so its important that you read the policy cover carefully and make sure it offers you want you want for both the course and whatever you plan to get up to on your days off and free time.

A 19 year-old on a 2-in-1 course would need cover from 4th November through to 1st May (149 days) on a Single Trip Black Pro Policy with ERV Insurance with £7,000 cancellation cover would cost around £250.

A 28yr old on an Anwärter Course wanting cover only for the course duration from Nov 4th through to 15th December (41 days) on a World Nomads Explorer Policy with Ski / Snowboard Cover with £5,000 cancellation cover would cost around £84.
