Insurance for campsite owners - how does it work?
Camping is what we do. We want private land owners to enjoy organising camping and associated activities in the knowledge that support is there when it's needed.
Liability insurance helps to ensure that campsite owners and their volunteers are covered against claims from third parties if an incident happens during a camping or associated activity.
What is campsite owner insurance?
For the protection of participants and all those involved in the management of registered and insured camping and associated activities, the Association provides through its public liability insurance policy, an indemnity, limited to $20,000,000 for legal liabilities arising from claims made against an organiser, official or participant*1 that involves either bodily injury or property damage to a third party.
All camping and associated activities promoted under the auspices of the Association are provided with this cover upon the listing of a Private Site in the www.campsites.asn.au/sites website and a properly completed, campsites booking form by members of the Association.
In the unlikely event that a claim is directed at at official ‘as an individual', rather than as a representative of the activities, the Association also provides to that individual the benefit of ‘Directors & Officers Liability' insurance which provides indemnity against ‘wrongful acts'*2 committed by ‘individuals' acting on behalf of an activity held under the auspices of the Association.
Individual cover will only be provided to PLUS members, which includes personal accident insurance to be covered at and whilst participating in events and activities approved by the Association.
‘Wrongful act' shall mean any actual or alleged breach of trust, breach of duty, neglect, error, misstatement, misleading statement, omission, breach of warranty of authority or other act wrongfully committed or attempted by the Official in the course of performing his duties as an Official.
