Re: Travel insurance question

Came across this post seraching for tips on Travel insurance and on further digging thought I would add, to what I know is an old post, in case of interest for others searching.

A good Swiss Health Insurance should cover you for health requirements overseas but with the usual high excess (but check!). The gap is repatriation which could be covered if one joins the Swiss Air rescue organisation Rega fir CHF 30 annually. Worldwide "Medically indispensible repatriation flights to Switzerland for patrons resident in Switzerland" www.rega.ch Useful anyway if you are a skiier.

That still leaves you with a likely very high excess, no cancellation cover or cover for insurable urgent changes to travel plans etc etc
If this is an issue try www.Worldnomads.com who will cover Swiss residents from a week to a year. albeit as ever at a slightly higher price than UK policies. (Worldwise ex US, 2 weeks including 'dangerous sports' EUR 49)
