The #SkiSafe and #TravelAware campaigns aim to provide easily accessible advice to everyone wishing to hit the snow. Obviously our favourite kind of holiday is a winter one but we're aware that there are dangers involved in snow sports so we wanted join with the FCO and ABTA to spread the word and make sure that every holiday is fun, safe and insured.
Here is the official #SkiSafe campaign press release which includes all the statistics, top 10 tips for travel from Graham Bell and bit more information about the FCO.
If you're not a big reader or are short on time here is a video introducing the campaign and the three main things you need to make sure you've covered before you board the plane (/train/boat/car/van/you get the picture...).
The FCO have also put together some really useful creative checklists:
Michael Vibert, Head of Consular Communications, Foreign and Commonwealth Office, said: “As the ski season gets under way, we want to ensure that everyone is adequately prepared for their winter sports holiday. The research from ABTA suggests that not enough British Nationals are checking they have taken out appropriate insurance before they travel. We want to emphasise the importance of taking responsibility and preparing for your trip so you can #SkiSafe this winter and enjoy your time on the slopes.”
We couldn't agree more! Look out for all our #SkiSafe posts in the coming months and throughout the whole winter.
