Our Paragliding Insurance policy options

Put simply, we offer three different policy options…

1. Travel Insurance

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

Why do you need insurance for paragliding?

Paragliding is classified as Grade 7 sport, which is our highest risk group. Therefore, our Paragliding Insurance is available only to those undertaking this activity under instruction – for example as part of a training course or as a tandem paraglide with an instructor.

People tend to associate paragliding as being a highly dangerous sport which is true to a certain degree because accidents can lead to very serious or fatal injuries. However, the most common paragliding injuries are sprained, fractured or broken legs and ankles.

Nevertheless, paragliders must adhere to all restrictions set by instructors and more experienced pilots. Suitable sports insurance is a must if you plan to engage in this activity.
