BKFA has new insurance arrangements from 1st May 2015.  The policies have been negotiated through Perkins Slade, a broker recommended by Sport & Recreation Alliance and are underwritten by Hiscox.

For individuals on the Tennyson/Zurich policy, current arrangements will continue until the expiry of their existing policy.

The policies are only available to BKFA member clubs and to their members. The principal policy provides third party liability cover (as well as a number of other protections) to a club, its officers and members.  The second is called Club Affiliated Independent Flyer (CAIF) cover and provides for cover worldwide (except USA and Canada) at any time whether flying individually, at an organised event or in a group.  The policies cover KAPing and bear dropping but not traction or power kiting.  We have added a small amount to the cost of cover to cover our administration costs.

CAIF cover costs £10.80 per person including insurance premium tax.

Club premiums are based on member numbers.

There are no discounts for family groups or children and cover is on a per person basis.

A letter outlining the arrangements for this year is here.

We have developed a document that describes the insured activities and this has been agreed by Perkins Slade.  It is here.

An outline of the policy us here with fuller policy wording here.  These apply to both the club policy and CAIF cover.

A copy of the insurance certificate will be provided via your club by email on receipt of payment of the premium.
