Before you head out onto the open water in your kayak, it might be worth considering purchasing insurance. Without it, you could be liable if you damage someone else’s property or injure someone while on your kayak.
Kayak Insurance will protect your kayak against theft, loss, or damage. Up to £3 million Third Party Liability is included as standard, so you’ll be covered if you damage third party property or injure another person while kayaking.
What’s more, kayak insurance includes New-for-Old cover for items bought new and not more than 3 years old at the date of the loss. This means if you ever need to make a claim, your kayak can be repaired or replaced as new, helping you get back out on the water in no time.
Here is a breakdown of our kayak insurance. For more information about what kayak insurance covers, check the Insurance Booklet.
• Damage caused by insects, marine borers, barnacles, marine growth, vermin, fungi or molluscs
• Theft by a person to whom the kayak was entrusted other than a member of your family. Terms apply
• The excess of any agreed claim
Am I covered if my kayak is stolen from my car?
You are only covered if your kayak has been securely locked onto your roof rack or if it was securely locked away in your vehicle and any security devices are in operation.
How much does kayak insurance cost?
The cost of insuring a kayak is based on a range of factors, including the value of the kayak and your claims history.
Kayak insurance is a form of financial protection should you accidentally damage your kayak or if it’s stolen. This insurance can also cover you if you accidentally injure another person or if you damage someone else’s property.
There are a number of reasons why you might need kayak insurance.
Firstly, kayaks can be quite expensive. Any equipment you have with your kayak could also come with a big price tag too. By not having insurance, you leave yourself open to having to pay out for new equipment if it’s stolen or paying for repairs to your kayak if it gets damaged.
Along with the potential risk of theft or damage, there is also the chance that you could injure someone else while on your kayak. If you did, then you could be legally liable for any damages the injured party might claim.
