Cost-cutting skiers 'facing underinsurance risk'

Many skiers will put themselves at risk of being left out of pocket this winter - due to not having taken out travel insurance.According to new figures from esure, 18 per cent of Britons planning to hit the slopes this season are cutting costs by dropping the cover.Meanwhile, 65 per cent are considering cutting their trip short in order to save money - while 53 per cent could have their holiday in a cheaper resort than usual.Commenting on the new survey, Mike Pickard, head of travel insurance at esure, said: "With more skiers considering weekend breaks and trips to Scotland as household purses continue to tighten, there may be a greater temptation to dismiss the need for travel insurance."But any winter sports holiday - no matter how long the trip or how close to home - comes with a certain element of risk. It's crucial to ensure you're fully covered if you have an accident on the slopes."Around 1.8 million Britons are reportedly planning a ski break at some point this winter.
