Membership Insurance

Whilst almost all Countryside Alliance Ireland (CAI) members will join the organisation because of a love of the countryside and an appreciation for the work that the CAI does to defend and promote country sports and rural life, some may also sign up to take advantage of the range of benefits that are offered as part of the membership.

One such benefit is the automatic inclusion to CAI’s insurance programme organised by The Howden Group (except Supporter Category). The package provides Personal Accident cover and Employers’, Public and Products Liability cover for eligible members to participate in a wide range of specific country pursuits (otherwise referred to as Recognised Activities) including a variety of riding and shooting events

Below are the relevant documents regarding the insurance covers in place for members resident in Northern Ireland or the Republic of Ireland.  The cover provided is essentially the same, but the Laws & Jurisdiction clauses are different and the Republic of Ireland limits of indemnity are of course in Euro's.

All documents below have been updated effective from 1st January 2017.
