Passports 


PLEASE NOTE: check your passport validity. British passport holders must have at least 6 months left on their passport to travel to France. Find out more - click here.
 
As a British passport holder you shouldn’t need a visa for your holiday (these are only necessary if you are in France for more than 90 days in a 180 day period).

Please check visa requirements if you are not a British or EU passport holder.

 

Insurance


GHIC - UK Global Health Insurance Card (previously called EHIC). If you’re a citizen of the UK, this card entitles you to free or discounted medical treatment when you’re un an EU country. Find out more - click here.

 
In addition, you should consider getting a winter sports insurance package to cover you for activities on the mountain.
 
Le Ski do not provide insurance but we recommend MPI Insurance.
 
In resort you can also add Carre Neige insurance to your ski pass. This includes mountain rescue and repatriation due to injuries on the mountain.
 
Take copies of your insurance documents to resort including your policy’s emergency procedures.
 
Your Le Ski Guest Services Manager will be available in resort if you have any issues but make sure to keep copies of any paperwork and receipts from the doctors, hospital or pharmacy. The general rule in France is pay now then re-claim later.
