Rural Insurance

We Know Country Sports Insurance

Lycetts is able to arrange a variety of country life insurance products to protect clients with rural sporting interests.

Field sports can be a risky business, making appropriate insurance with adequate levels of cover essential. From personal, public and employers’ liability to horse insurance, personal accident and shoot cancellation cover, navigating the insurance maze can be tricky.

Read our guide to making sure you have the right cover.

The seemingly limitless amount of time and expense devoted to rural pursuits means that clients can find themselves significantly out of pocket if things go wrong.

Lycetts can arrange country sports insurance cover to protect most rural pursuits; in particular shoots and hunts from a disaster.

Cover can be provided for buildings, tools and equipment, riding tack, birds (up to release), employers and public liability, motor (including ATVs) and legal expenses.

Find out the five golden rules that underpin shooting in the Code of Good Shooting Practice, produced by ten organisations responsible for live quarry shooting and wildlife management in the UK.

How to claim rural pursuits insurance.

In the event of a claim, please notify your Lycetts account executive or claims handler as soon as possible, and certainly of the incident. Some policies have strict time limits for notification of claims, so if there is a delay you may prejudice your claim.

 

If the claim is to be for theft or malicious damage, please remember to report the incident to the police and obtain a crime reference number. On larger claims (in excess of £2,000), insurers may wish to appoint a loss adjuster, in which case your Lycetts team will provide advice on procedure. Regarding liability claims, it is essential that any potential claims are notified to Lycetts immediately and all correspondence is promptly forwarded to your Lycetts contact.
