Shooting Insurance: 10 Reasons To Choose Gunplan

Why do you need Specialist Shooting Insurance?

Many shooters mistakenly rely on their household insurance rather than specialist gun 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 have better cover both inside and outside the home and you avoid raising your household premium if you do happen to make a claim.

Gunplan insures most types of shooting activities including clay pigeon shooting, target shooting, archery and wildfowling. Cover is available for a range of guns and shooting equipment such as rifles, shotguns, air rifles and bows.

Others join shooting membership organisations to get cover – but these are often expensive and come with added extras you may not need or care about. If it’s shooting insurance you’re after, why pay extra? Gunplan is unique because our policies are very flexible, meaning you can select the exact cover you need.
