    For some perspective, I bought a pair of billy basic goggles in a French resort [admittedly, a few years ago] for 20euros. Not bankbreaking.

    Is your bank 24hrs?
    Awesome, won't panic about that then :yy:

    No idea. It's taken me long enough to find the number for the right department. At least I can ring tomorrow.

    True - but if they do have one, they need to remember to bring it

    Oops!

    I ordered a replacement and it came in a couple of days - ordering today might be pushing it

    Actually I think I felt more organized about this trip a couple of weeks ago!

    Same! Started packing on Monday, got as far as my ski stuff and thought I'll dpi the rest later. I have work tomorrow and on Friday and I haven't even finished shopping. So glad it's a really late meeting time!

    is the EHIC essential? I have a national insurance card, never heard of that though :/

    although according to my dad, i'm covered under natwest black card family annual cover, he just said take the relevant phone and card numbers

    Should be fine (although I would strongly recommend if you can bringing a copy of your policy document or similar in case Ski Alpine want to see it), with my insurance then I don't need to pay any excess with medical related claims if I have an EHIC as it entitles you to cheaper or free healthcare in Europe (the same level that a citizen of the country would get).
