What Is Included with Skydiving Travel Insurance?
When heading to the sky, it’s important to know you are covered. However, without adequate skydiving insurance in place you could be boarding the aircraft unprotected.
With our Sports Travel Insurance in place, you are covered for standard travel insurance as well as cover for your skydive with the below benefits;
• Cover for your equipment or that which is hired to you during your trip in case of damage, delayed, lost or stolen up to £5,600.
• If you are injured and require medical treatment, the bill will be picked up by your insurance policy. Should you need to be repatriated back home, or if search and rescue teams are called, the costs will be handled by your policy.
• Discounts for couples, families and group policies.
• As with standard travel insurance you are also covered if you have to cancel or cut short a holiday abroad, or if your flight’s delayed or your baggage fails to arrive at your destination, your policy could repay the costs.
• Personal liability covering your legal liability resulting from accidents causing death, bodily injury or property damage to a third party.
Why Do You Need Skydiving Travel Insurance?
Skydiving is classified as a high risk sport. Serious injuries such as broken bones and disablement can occur, so it’s vital to take out appropriate insurance before going skydiving. If you already have travel insurance and just need additional cover for your skydive then our Activity TopUp policy can cover you alongside your travel insurance.

Does Standard Travel Insurance Cover Skydiving?
Skydiving would be classed as adventurous activity by most travel insurers. Standard travel insurance policies do not normally pay out for accidents during so-called adventure sports unless additional cover is taken out. So, if you choose a specialist travel insurance policy read the small print to make sure Skydiving is covered by it.
However, if you decide to try something a bit riskier, like black water rafting or shark cage diving, it is very likely those activities to be excluded from an average policy and you will need a specific sports insurance cover. Please check our full list of sports activities here.
Can I take out skydiving travel insurance if I have a medical condition?
Yes, medical conditions do not effect 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 skydiving travel insurance?
You can purchase our skydiving 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.
