It's why Dogtag is the default travel insurer for people who take their travel and their safety seriously.
Dogtag 100% Proof Travel Insurance
We've covered parapenting from the very start under our Extreme sports cover level so be sure to select Extreme on your way through the quote application process. Other than that there's nothing else to do, you're covered for Parapenting or Paragliding as well as all of the other sports listed in the sport list - except winter sports, which require the Winter Sports upgrade.
As with a few other sports, there are restrictions on the cover. With Parapenting and Paragliding, there's no cover for Personal Accident and Personal Liability.
Why is this and what does it mean?
Personal Accident cover
With some sports (another example is offshore sailing or ice climbing) the fact that you are deliberately exposing yourself to the danger of permanent disability means that underwriters withdraw the compensation for permanent disability. However, this does not mean that your Emergency Medical treatment cover is affected - you'll still be covered for your medical costs, you just won't be compensated for any disability that results from your injury.
Likewise, because some sports have a high dependency upon the inter-dependability of participants, one person's mistake can have a knock-on effect that can injure other people or their property - and afterwards, who's to know who's fault it really ws?. It's the potential for very lengthy counter-suits that mean that underriters remove this aspect of cover.his is why Personal Liability cover is removed.
