BASC is introducing an insurance policy which covers cancellation due to adverse weather, interference by protestors or financial failure of the shoot venue. It also provides cover if a shoot has to be cancelled due to avian flu. The policy is arranged by Aim Risk Services and underwritten by Sportscover Europe Ltd.
The policy is available to both BASC members and non-members, but BASC members get a 20% discount.
For the individual
Covers irrecoverable financial costs as a result of adverse weather or disruption by an organised protest group; including theft of birds or `death/illness’ of birds’ due to deliberate poisoning.
Cover must be obtained at least 14 days before the shoot.
For recreational clubs and syndicates and commercial shoots
Cover can also be provided for commercial and recreational syndicates which extends to compensate for birds that are lost in the release pen through disease, poaching, vandalism or days cancelled due to protestors. It also covers if poults cannot be delivered to a shoot because of bird flu movement restrictions.
Maximum exposure of £15,000 per day*
