Jet skiing is a wonderful way to experience the waters of the UK. Arguably one of the most fun water crafts on the market, jet skiing is also considered to be an extreme sport because of the high speeds involved.

It is important to note that the specific timeline will depend on the provider. It can take a matter of days or weeks, depending on the timeline that the provider stipulates. Once you have received a quote, and selected a provider and policy, you will need to submit an application that provides information about your jet ski, and pay a premium. The coverage may not begin until you have paid the premium and received confirmation from your insurance provider.
The time frame will also depend on your specific situation. If you have recently purchased a jet ski and are looking to insure it, this may take slightly longer than if you are renewing or extending your insurance cover.
When insuring your jet ski, there are several factors that will affect the policy and, therefore, the cost to insure. Below are a list of just a few of them:
Jet ski insurance policies will vary quite extensively between insurers, and depending on your specific situation. But below are some of the aspects of coverage that you might expect when insuring your jet ski:
It is not legally necessary to have jet ski insurance in order to jet ski in the UK. However it is a little more complicated than this. For example, jet skiing on seas and oceans does not require any insurance. However if you are planning to use the jet ski on inland waterways, then you are usually required to have insurance before you can apply for a waterways license.
Furthermore, some marinas or yacht clubs require proof of insurance before you can dock your jet ski.
While insurance is often not compulsory, it is always wise to properly insure your jet ski and any accessories. Jet skiing is an extreme sport and therefore accidents can be common. Luckily, at Taylor Watkins, we work to get you the best cover quickly, so that you can enjoy your jet skiing with complete peace of mind.
