Please note that for our foreign trips you must take adequate cancellation and travel insurance at the time of booking. It is a condition of booking that you must have medical repatriation insurance that includes the paragliding risk before embarking on any courses/trips outside the U.K. We can advise how this can be arranged. Insurance cover should include specific terms that include the cost of helicopter rescue (or equivalent) – this can prove very expensive and is not always covered in paragliding policies. Please check your policy carefully.
You should be a member of the British Hang-Gliding and Paragliding Association. We can arrange this for you at the start of your holiday or course.
All Sunsoar guests understand that paragliding could be a dangerous activity and carries an inherent element of risk. Sunsoar Paragliding, it’s directors, instructors, servants or agents cannot be held responsible for any loss or injury howsoever caused during participation in the sport or attendance on a trip or while travelling. Sunsoar staff will provide advice on flying conditions, sites, landing options, hazards etc but the choice to fly is always made by the participant solely.
We choose our venues and times to maximise flyable weather, but of course as with any outdoor activity, there are risks of strong winds or other unsuitable weather conditions and Sunsoar Paragliding reserves the right to cancel flying at any time. We are unable to offer refunds in this situation--please see the information on this website regarding weather and paragliding. Where possible we will try to find other activities / visits etc to make sure we all get the most out of our trip. We will try to provide transport to and from your chosen activity, but this cannot be guaranteed.
Several alternative activities may be available during the time of your trip, including water sports, snorkelling, biking, caving etc. and other sports involving an inherent element of risk. Apart from paragliding, all such activities are provided not by us but by local individuals and organizations who are solely responsible for all aspects of your safety and participation in the activity concerned. Sunsoar Paragliding and all of their staff hold no responsibility for any of the aforementioned activities or any incidents that take place relevant to them.
