Sound Insurance is thrilled to provide an affordable insurance solution to keep private Canadian hot air balloons flying. Coverage is available for all Canadian registered hot air balloons used privately with only incidental instruction and/or fare paying passengers.

We have partnered with a knowledgeable and reliable insuring partner to ensure coverages and limits are suitable for all balloonists with premiums that reflect how safe hot air balloons can be and that you are always operating in the safest way possible.
