What does a skydive insurance policy cover?

Personal Liability

We cover you up to £1 million for single trips and up to £2 million if you choose one if our annual policies. This covers your legal responsibility to third parties who may be injured, or have their property damaged due to an accident linked to your jump for which you are liable. This will not include damage to your own personal property.

A range of different jumping scenarios

Our sky diving insurance can provide cover for amateur jumpers, those in training and of course the pros whether you are jumping from a plane or simply preparing in a vertical wind tunnel. In addition, the policy automatically lends itself to both solo and tandem jumps so you don’t have to feel restricted by your insurance. Just keep in mind that our cover is only available to those aged between 18 and 75 years.

Peace of mind

Personal accidents can still happen even in the safest of sports. If you suffer an injury or fatality while skydiving, your Sky Cover policy can offer up to £100,000 for various medical scenarios and more so if you have our annual cover. Disability cover is also included and if the worst should happen, your family would receive funds from the policy. To keep your cover valid, make sure you adhere to the policy conditions as provided in you policy wording for example- cover will not be valid if you are found to have alcohol in your blood stream when jumping.

Sky diving travel insurance

We provide cover for single jumps in the UK, single trips to Europe or Worldwide and annual cover for European (including UK) and worldwide jumping all year round. On all policies which take you out of the UK you will have additional cover for your baggage up to £500 and money up to £100. Just remember our sky diving insurance is not an alternative to travel insurance and you should still consider buying a travel insurance policy. We can help you with this too, just speak with the team about what you might need.

What if my jump is postponed?

If you have an annual policy you don’t need to worry about the date of your jump changing but for those who have a single jump insured, date is more important. If the weather means you have to postpone then all you need to do if fill in a short form to let us know.

Are there limits how often I can jump during an annual policy?

No, you can arrange as many jumps as you like during your period of insurance and still be covered.

How do the Single Trip Europe and Worldwide policies work; will they cover just one jump or a number of jumps?

You can take the single trip policies for s period of up to two weeks and jump as many times as you like during this time. These only cover the actual sky diving/parachuting aspect of your trip, not the normal travel insurance.

If my payment is rejected will I still be covered?

If you need to make a claim, we will not be able to proceed with your claim until the premium has been paid. If you are having trouble please call our team for assistance.
