How is Angling Insurance different?
Angling is a form of fishing whereby angler’s use a fishhook dressed with lures or bait on the end of a line attached to a fishing rod. Angling is a principle method of sport fishing practiced by fisherman catching for profit however, commercial fisheries use angling methods such as longlining or trolling and most anglers keep their catch for consumption.
Despite angling being generally considered as a safe sport that is enjoyed by people of all ages, there are certain risks associated with it. Incidents such as minor burns from overhead electric power lines or drowning following a slip or fall have been reported, therefore insurance is always recommended for your angling activities.
Does standard travel insurance cover angling?
Angling is listed as one of our lower risk sports group however, you would need to check with the travel insurance company directly as they don’t normally pay out for accidents during so-called adventure sports unless additional cover is taken out. So, if you choose a general travel insurance policy read the small print to make sure angling is covered by it.
Can I get cover for more sports by the same policy?
We provide cover for over 500 sports and activities and we split them into seven sports groups. angling is in our sports group 1, which means you would also be covered for all sports in the same group and any lower groups. Please check our full list of sports activities here.
Can I take out angling insurance if I have a medical condition?
Yes, medical conditions do not affect the premium. You will need to declare any medical conditions, injuries or treatment within the last two years, and this is then referred to the underwriters who will assess any special terms.
Is there a maximum age restriction with your angling insurance?
You can purchase our angling insurance online up until 74 years old, above this age you would need to call us on 01494 484800 and we will be able to refer your quote to our underwriters. Please note, our quotes are based on your age at the start date of cover.
