Our Parachuting Insurance policy options

Put simply, we offer three different policy options…

1. Travel Insurance

We provide a Sports Travel Insurance that includes cover for parachuting 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 parachuting, 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 parachuting in the UK. The policy offers personal accident insurance and income protection. Get an instant quote for any of our policies online.

What makes our policy different?

Parachuting is classified as an extreme sport by most insurers, therefore standard travel insurance policies are unlikely to cover it. At SportsCover Direct, we provide cover for parachuting under instruction, tandem parachuting and 500 other sports.

If you are planning a jump in the UK, our Sports Accident Insurance can safeguard for tandem parachuting, solo parachuting under instruction, and those qualified to parachute alone. Our policy comes with benefits such as broken bones, permanent disablement and income protection cover.

For those flying abroad, our Sports Travel Insurance policy can protect you for tandem jumps, and parachuting whilst under instruction. Just as with any travel insurance, you will also be covered for medical expenses, cancellations, flight delays and more.

Should anything go awry, our Parachuting Insurance could cushion you from the financial implications, so arrange your policy before you jump!
