Craft Insurance Changes

Fri 30 November 2018

British Canoeing has recently worked with Towergate to simplify the insurance options available to our members.  

When you take out your SCA Full membership, you can choose to include either individual or multi craft cover.  The insurance comprises:

  • Cover for canoes, kayaks, paddleboards, paddles, helmets and buoyancy aids

  • Cover for accidental loss or damage

  • Up to 30 days in Europe at any one time

  • Cover for all canoeing activities, including competitions



Individual cover includes:

  1. One craft up to a value of £1,500

  2. With a limit of £250 for any one paddle

  3. Excess of £100 for craft and £50 for a paddle

£35

Our multi craft cover includes:

  1. Four craft up to a value of £1,500 each

  2. With a limit of £250 for any one paddle

  3. Excess of £100 for craft and £50 for a paddle

£60

Purchasing Craft Insurance

The insurance runs with your membership. So, simply add it when joining or renewing on our online membership system. Please be aware that Craft Insurance MUST be purchased at the SAME TIME as your membership. It is no longer possible to add Craft Insurance part way through your membership. 

Members with existing policies will be moved to the nearest policy - those with current ‘single’ insurance will move to the new Individual cover and those with a ‘multi’ policy will move to new ‘Multi-craft cover’ when they next renew.
