Why do you need specialist shooting insurance?

Whenever you are on a shoot, it's worth knowing you have protection should the worst happen. With shooting insurance, you would be covered in the event you cause an injury to someone, or if you damage property, while on a shoot.

Ripe specialises in shooting insurance for all types of shooting, from rough and clay pigeon shooting through to pest control and if you need gun insurance we’ve got you covered. 

Many shooters mistakenly rely on their household insurance rather than specialist shooting insurance to cover their shooting equipment. Unfortunately, in most cases, household insurance won’t cover incidents outside of the home such as those at the gun club, at a shoot or in transit. With specialist shooting insurance, you’re covered both inside and outside the home and you avoid raising your household premium if you do happen to make a claim.

With Ripe, you only pay for the cover you need so you can build your own specialist shooting insurance policy. No frills, just great value cover, allowing you to enjoy your sport with total peace of mind.

Why choose Ripe for shooting insurance?

What does shooting insurance cover?

Can I get shooting insurance cover for shooting abroad?

How much does shooting insurance cost?

The cost of shooting insurance can vary depending on a range of factors, for example the value of any shooting equipment you want to insure. The price can also vary across different insurance providers and will depend on what their insurance covers.

Is it a legal requirement to have shooting insurance?

While it’s not a legal requirement to have shooting insurance, most clubs and shooting grounds will require you to have proof of Public Liability insurance before you go on a shoot.

The majority of home insurance providers will also not cover your shooting equipment while you’re on a shoot, whereas your equipment would be covered if you were to add that level of cover when purchasing specialist insurance.

Do I need a firearms licence to get shooting insurance?

No, it’s perfectly legal to have shooting insurance without a firearms licence.

If you’re using a rifle or a shotgun on a shoot, it must be used in accordance with Section 11 or Section 11A of the 1968 Firearms Act.
