Civil Liability
All NISA members are provided with £5m free Civil Liability insurance cover. This insurance policy covers members when they are carrying out NISA authorised activities. These would typically include:

  • Competing - Home or abroad
  • Volunteering - At a NISA permitted/authorised event
  • Representing NISA at an event - judging etc

Civil Liability does not cover accidents to the insured. It is a policy that covers the insured as an individual should they become involved in an accident and then find themselves subject to litigation - they would be covered under this policy.

Accident Cover

All NISA members between the ages of 3 and 75 are provided with free personal injury insurance. However, the cover on this policy is very limited and covers only major injury.  The policy is not a Travel Insurance Policy and will not cover repatriation or localised hospitalisation.

NISA travel insurance including repatriation and localised hospitalisation applies only to those selected and sent on behalf of NISA.  In the case of skaters, this means those selected to represent GBR at Junior and Senior Grand Prix events and major ISU Championships, but not skaters who request, and are subsequently allocated, International events.

Our Insurance partners, Howden, offer bespoke Travel Insurance for sporting trips.  The website can be found here: http://www.sporttravelinsurance.co.uk/
