The Adventure Activity Insurance Scheme is a leader in providing insurance for both activity centres and freelance instructors. We fully understand the importance of supporting, developing and promoting excellent practice in learning through outdoor experience. We recognise that every activity business is unique so have ensured that you have the flexibility to grow your insurance to match your particular requirements. And as your activities business grows, we can adapt your policy to suit you.

We also have a bespoke scheme for forest school leaders/bushcraft leaders/environmental study officers, who work on a freelance basis.

Under this scheme, a freelance instructor offering purely Environmental Studies can expect to pay just £169 inc IPT for an annual policy (depending on satisfactory completion on the proposal form) if they are a member of IOL. Please note: If you are trading under a company name, you are required to be an Organisation member with the IOL.
