Insurance for Hazardous Pastimes / Sports
Some examples of hazardous pastimes and sports are:
For policies such as Life Insurance, Critical Illness Cover and Income Protection, hazardous pursuits can have a large impact on the cost and terms of cover. This is because insurance companies are concerned with the increased risk of illness, or in certain circumstances death, that come hand in hand with certain dangerous sports and activities.
It is unusual for you not to be able to get cover at all due to hazardous pastimes or sports, however it is likely that a policy could come with a higher premium or an exclusion for your activity. For Life Insurance there are some insurance providers who can exclude activities like private aviation and motor sports from your policy’s claimable list. They will normally offer to include them too… for a cost. Plans such as Income Protection are much more likely to simply exclude any dangerous activities and sports you do when you apply for cover.
What Will the Insurers Need to Know?
- The type of hazardous activity / sport you take part in
- How often you take part in the activity / sport
- The extent / degree / severity that you partake in
- If you have any qualifications or if you are part of any national association to do with your activity / sport
- Where you take part in the activity / sport
- If you are involved in competitions
How the Cura can Help?
As there are a range of insurance companies in the UK, all with different acceptance criteria and prices, it is essential that your cover be placed with the right one. Some policies may have exclusions that relate to hazardous pastimes and some may increase premiums to cover the extra risk. In some situations however you might be able to source the cover at a standard premium with no exclusions and no price increase.
It is therefore very important to either speak to an insurance adviser or fully research the cover you require to ensure you are adequately protected at the right price.
