Seasonnaire Insurance from ERGO

So you’ve bagged the job or got yourself on that all important course and packed your bags, but have you thought about insurance? In particular, seasonnaire insurance? OK, it’s not the most exciting thing on your ever increasing to do list, but it’s probably one of the most important items to consider when getting ready for your season.

Here at ERGO we have pulled together our knowledge to create specialist cover designed for Seasonnaires, whether you are on a course, teaching skiing/snowboarding, taking a gap year, or even travelling and enjoying the gorgeous scenery in places such as Canada, Austria and France.


How does it work?

Seasonnaire Insurance: Staff or Seasonnaire?

Seasonnaire Staff: is designed for individuals who are employed by a company, such as ski instructors or holiday reps and have part or minimal aspects of their insurance provided for them by their employers. This product ensures that not only are you covered whilst you are at work, you are also insured in your leisure time, this is often not provided through seasonal employers. Therefore, it is really important to ensure you are fully covered during your time away.

This cover is suited to those looking for:

  • Ski Instructor Insurance
  • Snowboard Instructor Insurance
  • Holiday reps


Seasonnaire: designed for individuals who:

  • Do not have any form of insurance provided by their employer whilst at Work and in their Leisure time. It is especially important to ensure you are covered for Emergency Medical & Repatriation Expenses, this is included in the seasonnaire scheme
  • Do not have a formal job offer
  • Are still seeking employment


You can decide what activities you will be involved in, and ERGO provides the cover.


Ski and Snowboard Instructor Insurance

Seasonnaire Staff policy holders are insured for skiing and snowboarding on piste on the Rookie cover. If you wish to go off-piste or participate in any other freestyle or more extreme snowboarding you will need the Adventurer or PRO cover.

If you are a ski or snowboard instructor, you will need the Adventurer or PRO cover depending on what level of teaching and experience you have, together with the type of activities you will undertake. It is best to double check that you are selecting the right type of cover for you, depending on activities, location, duration, experience and also whether or not you have any pre-existing medical conditions.

As a ski or snowboard instructor you will have a good command of the slopes, but if you are unsure about whether or not you will participate in any of the more extreme or professional activities listed in your quote, it is best to get cover anyway. If you have any questions about any of the activities you will be participating in and what our ski and snowboard instructor insurance will cover you for, do contact our customer services number on Tel: 01403 788 513.
