Ramblers Insurance for Path Maintenance Teams 

Many Areas and Groups actively engage in volunteer path maintenance or improving paths and rights of way. This is normally carried out in collaboration with the local authority or similar agency. Sometimes insurance cover is arranged by the local authority, and in these situations the local authority determines the conditions under which the Ramblers groups can operate.

Where cover is not provided by the local authority Areas and Groups may use the Ramblers insurance provision. Both civil liability insurance and personal accident insurance are available.

To find out more about the specific conditions of the insurance related to path maintenance teams, please see Section 4 of the Insurance Guide.
