Personal Injury Cover


Personal Injury Cover for Social / Sporting Club Members
(also referred to as Voluntary Workers Insurance)

The ARA offers Personal Injury Cover for Social/Sporting Club Members (ARA Members doing reenactment activities).

This cover is for ARA Members only. (Sorry, we don't offer this cover for non-members).

Personal Injury Cover is optional cover for those members who believe that they would benefit from having it. No-one is obliged to take it up if they don't want to.

A policy has been procured that is affordable and accessible to all members and offers good value for money.

The cost for Personal Injury Cover is $30 for the Calendar year.

Consider it this way:

  • ARA Membership (incl Public Liability Insurance) = $20
  • ARA Personal Injury Cover = $30
  • A total of $50 per year equates to less than $1 per week for all the cover you need.

Excess: from $1000

In the event that you need to make a claim against the Personal Injury Policy the excess to be paid is from $1000.
