Hi,

Just wondering how you got on with 123. Son had insurance with BMC but they don't appear to be covering ROI people any longer. Any other recommendations out there for long term stay for snowboarding for Worldwide cover? Seems very expensive on a lot of sites.

Believe it or not VHI have a decent affordable worldwide travel cover. I can't remember the details for how many days etc but I'm sure there website will tell you. There are options you can tailor to your needs (e.g. winter sports cover or other stuff)

Thanks for reply. He's not insured with VHI any longer so don't think he can take out policy with them because of this aspect

"Medical Emergencies are handled through Vhi Assist under your Vhi Healthcare Hospital Plan"

We got a quote some years ago when he was insured with them and it was extremely expensive because of the 'dangerous sport' snowboarding!

Nah I think their travel insurance is separate nowadays.
Here are the details:

Is there a good website to find ski chalets? I'm guessing there's a website where they are all listed (it's easy enough to find holiday homes in Ireland like that), but I can't find one.

Specifically if we're looking at chalets I'd be thinking of Spain.
