    Are you travelling abroad?

    If you are going abroad take a look at our Sports Travel insurance to cover your whole trip, or if you already have travel cover but need extra cover for your sport or activity for a day(s), look at our Activity TopUp insurance. Whilst our Sports Accident insurance is valid worldwide, the benefits do not include cover for medical treatment abroad or repatriation.

    How it works

    Although extremely rare, things can go wrong when skydiving, so having suitable financial protection in place is important.

    Our Sports Accident Insurance will pay out a lump sum should you suffer a serious injury whilst skydiving. Adding Income Protection to your policy will also safeguard a pre-determined percentage of your salary should a skydiving injury force you off work for a sustained period of time.

    Personal Liability will also cover you should you injure someone else or damage someone’s property whilst skydiving. This means that should someone sue you for their injuries or damage to their property, your Sports Accident Insurance policy will take care of the defence costs. Should you be found liable we will also cover any settlement costs that are deemed appropriate.

    Skydiving is in one of our highest risk groups. If you take out skydiving cover, you are insured for all sports in the same risk group and any lower risk group. This provides you comprehensive cover for multiple activities should you also undertake some less-risky sports.

    If you take out our Sports Travel Insurance, as well as emergency medical expenses and Public Liability, you are covered for standard travel insurance benefits. This includes things such as cancellation, curtailment and lost or stolen personal effects as standard.

    Already have standard travel insurance? Our Activity TopUp policy can add skydiving cover onto your current policy for full protection.
