Our Gliding Insurance policy options

Put simply, we offer three different policy options…

1. Travel Insurance

We provide a Sports Travel Insurance that includes cover for gliding abroad for leisure or competition. The policy includes cover for medical and repatriation costs, trip cancellation and curtailment, plus more.

2. Travel Insurance Bolt-On

If you have an existing travel insurance policy in place with another provider, such as your bank, but it does not include cover for gliding, we can provide a bolt-on style of protection for your trip.

3. Sports Accident Insurance

Our Sports Accident Insurance is designed to protect you whilst gliding in the UK. The policy offers personal accident insurance and income protection. Get an instant quote for any of our policies online.

Why Gliding Insurance r

Why do you need Gliding Insurance?

Whether you’re flying locally to your club, flying long distances cross country or soaring at high altitude, it is important to protect yourself in case you get injured or something unexpected occurs whilst partaking in your activity.

Gliding allows you to reach heights of 30,000 feet and speeds of over 100mph in an engineless aircraft using only the wind and air to soar through the skies.

With typical flight distances of around 300km and only use of rising air to stay airborne, gliding is also classified as one of the highest risk sports.
