There’s a saying like “Shit Happens”, or “You Can Never Be Too Prepared”, and the list could go on endlessly. The bottom line is that if you are participating in paragliding sport that is inherently dangerous and high risk, you have to be well prepared in case of injuries. Of course nobody is expecting that to happen, but it is always good to be prudent.
Until recently, none of the insurance companies in Malaysia will cover for paragliding sport. Most of the paragliding pilots already have other General Insurance or Life Insurance but they do not cover accidents due to extreme sport; and unfortunately, paragliding is considered as extreme sport.
Luckily for us, Lonpac Insurance Berhad has agreed to explore the options in providing insurance for paragliding pilots under their product called Re-Claim and its latest development is the creation of coverage plans that were designed specifically for paragliding pilots who wish to get an insurance coverage with an affordable annual fee. We are the appointed registration center for this packages and please go through the online form below for subscription of the annual plan, be responsible to yourself and your family by getting yourself covered while paragliding.
Additional note : Re-Claim Paragliding Insurance covers not only your medical expenses when you’re hospitalised due to paragliding sport accident, it also covers the paragliding equipment damages and any third-party claims – this is the most unique value proposition in sports insurance ever! So far it’s not yet available anywhere else in Southeast Asia except in Malaysia. The insurance plan coverage is international, means that it doesn’t matter where the accident happens and Re-Claim still got your back!*
