Insurance for the Outdoor Recreation Industry

If you, as an insurance producer, are not already providing your clients with outdoor recreation coverage, it’s something you should consider. Here’s why you should think about offering insurance for the outdoor recreation industry:

The Numbers Behind Outdoor Recreation Participation

The Outdoor Recreation Satellite Account (ORSA) of the US Department of Commerce’s Bureau of Economic Analysis shows that the outdoor recreation economy is growing, by 1.7% in 2016, a faster rate than the 1.6% growth rate of the overall economy. It’s a lucrative field in which to work, especially when you look at the numbers of Americans who are interested in outdoor recreation. The Outdoor Industry Association participation report for 2018 indicates almost half of the population ages six and over participated in an outdoor activity at least once the year prior, continuing a three-year growth trend.

Covering Your Clients with Prime Insurance Company

Looking at the steady growth of the outdoor recreation industry, it follows that those offering outdoor recreation activities would want to ensure that they have appropriate insurance for the outdoor recreation industry. Similarly, participants in outdoor recreation activities may want to carry their own coverage as well, to cover anything the recreation company doesn’t handle. As an insurance producer, this is an excellent opportunity for you to move into a new niche and write more business.

Here at Prime Insurance Company, we are well-known for our partnership approach. We know that not every client fits into the same cookie-cutter, especially in a field like outdoor recreation where personal details and individual endeavors and challenges have such an impact on how a quote turns out.

We look at each scenario and aim to be as flexible and communicative as possible, so you and your client know what we’re doing and why. The goal is to meet unique needs so you can write more business and your clients can enjoy more peace of mind.

Of course, for industry professionals, there are unique exposures that come with the outdoor and recreation industry. Someone offering rock climbing is going to need very different insurance from someone selling shoes, for instance. We work hard to find insurance solutions, even if an activity has been deemed too risky by other insurers. If you’re working with a client who has been turned away in the past, we may be able to provide a solution — just get in touch with us to find out how we can help.
