Hot Air Ballooning Travel Insurance

Hot Air Ballooning Hot Air Ballooning Travel Insurance – Up, up and away!

Flying silently through the sky, wind in your hair, high above the tree tops, people like ants far below… you’re either an unlucky Circus midget fired from a particularly powerful cannon, or you’re hot air ballooning. Hot air ballooning is arguably the most romantic way to fly –you’ll enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime, awe-inspiring experience – magnificent views, the majesty of flight and lifelong memories.

While drifting slowly and peacefully across the countryside may seem serene, it is important to be aware that there are dangers associated with this activity. Floating into powerlines, crash landings and mid-air collisions can cause injury and occasionally even be fatal.

Despite this, Insure & Away are prepared insure hot air ballooning as part of one of the 100 exciting sports and activities we cover automatically, no questions asked. So long as the hot air balloon ride you take is purely a pleasure ride (as opposed to a Richard Bransonesque world record attempt), you’re covered.
