Innovative Ski Insurance Provider is First to Release a Free iPhone App for Skiers(March 09, 2011)
(PRWeb UK) March 9, 2011
Complete Ski, a leading winter sports insurance specialist, has built on its reputation for innovation by being the first UK insurance company to bring its customers value added travel data in an iPhone app for ski resorts.
The free 'Resort Maps' app from Complete Ski lets users quickly find out what places of interest are located near them in a ski resort. Covering 22 top ski resorts in Europe, America and Canada, the app is a must have ski trip companion.
Tim Lister, Head of Development at Complete Ski said "We are pleased to bring winter sports enthusiasts a useful navigational tool, which unlike many other apps enables users to make the most of their après ski, as well as time on the slopes."
"Based on your current GPS location, the app maps the restaurants, bars, hotels and ski lifts that are in your resort, so users can easily get their bearings and find where they want to go. As such, anyone new to a resort can quickly view the points of interest around them or for those looking for a particular location, they can search for it and view it on the map."
An offline version of the app is also in development. This offers the same great functionality but since it works in offline mode there is no need for roaming when abroad. The first offline resort version has been released - Offline Resort Map for Lech - which for a nominal download price saves users potentially hefty roaming fees. It is the first app of its kind available for Lech, Austria. The full offline resort range will be integrated for 'in app' purchase via the master app, Resort Maps.
The app also offers the added benefits of an exclusive discount on Complete Ski travel insurance and a handy list of local emergency numbers. So for anyone going to any of the top resorts in France, Austria, Switzerland, the USA and Canada, the 'Resort Maps' app from Complete Ski is something for winter sports enthusiasts to add to their holiday checklist.
