For specialist expeditions which are self organised, or exploratory or part of a research project, we will not provide cover unless a full submission regarding the expedition organisation has been agreed by the insurers. We do not normally agree cover for specialist expeditions which are not recreational adventure holidays and normally refer proposals to the insurers of the appropriate organisation or governing sports body.

Do I have to pay my medical expenses and claim on my return to the UK?
No. If you call the 24 hour emergency number on your Snowcard, Assistance International will guarantee and arrange to pay your bills for you. For smaller amounts which you have paid yourself, simply call the claims number (0345 122 3280) on your return to the UK and ask for the appropriate claim form.
Do I have to advise you every time I go on holiday for my annual cover to work?
No. You only need to call if your single trip is likely to exceed your selected trip limit or you need a higher level policy.

Can children travel independently on a family multi trip policy?
Children up to and including age 18 can travel independently on a family policy. Children over the age of 18 travelling independently are classified as adults and require their own policy.
Are pre existing medical conditions covered?
The policy is subject to certain health exclusions for pre existing conditions. You may call Snowcard to discuss any uncertainties or email assistance@snowcard.co.uk. If you or anyone you are buying insurance for has a pre existing medical condition, you must refer to the health statement (your-pre-existing-medical-conditions) to see if it is covered. Some conditions will be covered, others not. If your condition is not covered by the Snowcard policy, you can still purchase a policy which will cover any new accidents or illnesses happening on holiday. If you require cover for a pre existing medical condition that is excluded by the Snowcard policy, you must seek alternative cover with an insurer specializing in pre existing condition insurance. Please refer to the British Insurance Brokers’ Association website at: www.biba.org.uk Please refer to page 13 of the policy wording for specific exclusions regarding the health of close relatives/business associates or other travel companions.
