Excess Waiver

By purchasing the excess waiver option, the excess on the policy is reduced to £0 and you would therefore not be responsible for making a payment toward a claim.

Missed Connection Cover

This extension provides additional travel insurance cover in the event you miss a connecting flight, ferry, cruise ship, train or motor vehicle as a result of a delay to your initial outbound transport.

Terrorism Cover Extension

This extension provides additional insurance cover to enable you to cancel or cut short your trip if a terrorist act occurs within a 40 miles radius of your pre booked accommodation and you no longer wish to travel.

Flying a Private Aircraft

Flying a Private Aircraft requires the pilot to pay for all expenses himself or herself, including costs for fuel, airport fees and maintenance costs. Many countries have less strict rules for Private Aviation than for Commercial Aviation.

One example that illustrates this perfectly is the rule that Private Pilots are allowed to execute certain maintenance jobs themselves, but Commercial Airplanes may only be serviced by Licensed Technicians.

It is important to make the distinction between Private and Commercial flights; a distinction that is based on the purpose of a flight and not on the individual Pilot or Airplane.

A Commercial Pilot, for instance, that flies an Airplane to visit friends or family is considered to carry out a private flight in most countries.

On the other hand, a Private Pilot could operate a large Aircraft and transport dozens of people, but not get paid for it. That flight would be considered private as well.

That being said; everyone who wants to operate an Aircraft, whether Privately or Commercially, must take Flying Courses and succeed for an exam. Everyone needs a Pilot License to legally fly any Aircraft.

Sports Equipment Insurance for Flying

Any damage to your Flying Equipment could end up being very expensive and time consuming to replace. 

We have partnered with a HB Insurance who can provide cover for your Flying Equipment, in transit, storage and whilst being used.
