Skydiving can be undertaken at a wide variety of different levels, from a one-off tandem sky dive with an instructor to a sky diver who takes part in the sport as their main hobby. Whatever your level though, if you are planning a skydive, it's essential you are properly covered to participate - whether your insurance covers you fully is the last thing you want to be worried about when you are about to jump out of a plane.

As with any insurance it’s important that you make sure you have the right cover for the type of trip you are undertaking, and that doesn't just apply to the skydiving - make sure all aspects of your break are covered! And read all the terms and conditions carefully (remember you have a cooling off period of 14 days with any insurance policy if you find you are not happy with the cover). Likewise, if you do not go sky diving on every holiday, a one off single trip policy may be a better option covering your skydiving trip separately rather than an all-encompassing annual policy.

Find a policy that covers you whether you are sky-diving for the first time or whether you are a regular.

If you are looking for life insurance as a skydiver then we can help too.

Considerations when looking for Travel Insurance covering Skydiving

Skydiving or parachuting, normally takes one of the following forms:

  • Tandem skydiving - this is undertaken with an experienced instructor who is fully trained. The instructor is in control of the whole jump from leaving the plane to ensuring the landing is as smooth as possible and will ensure the parachute is opened at the correct moment activating and controlling the parachute.
  • Solo Skydiving - this is only undertaken by fully trained individuals who jump, normally in a group, from around 4000 metres before freefalling to a point where the parachute is activated to slow the fall and allow a safe landing.

Skydiving accidents occur most frequently when the normal safety procedures are not followed as they should be, and the landing is the critical time when injuries tend to be leg or back related. Rigorous safety processes to check the equipment are undertaken, and a reserve 'chute is always carried. Unless a seasoned skydiver, equipment such as goggles, jumpsuit gloves and harnesses are provided by the company organising your jump.

Europe is a popular venue for skydiving with centres both in the UK and notably in France, Spain, Portugal, Germany, the Czech Republic, Latvia and Greece (especially Crete). Worldwide destinations include the US, New Zealand and Australia - be aware that not all travel insurers will cover skydiving trips to the US due to the high cost of medical treatment, although both the companies on our panel will.
