Frequently Asked Questions
Are you insured?
We recommend you have satisfactory insurance cover to take part in the experience.
Segway Events does hold adequate insurance for Public Liability and this provides cover for our business’s legal liability to pay damages which result from a negligent act on our part.
However as with other hazardous activities such as skiing, mountain biking or surfing we recommend you have your own insurance policy to cover you for accident and injury whilst riding a Segway. We hope that you never need to use your insurance, but this is definitely a case of better safe than sorry.
What qualifications do your crew have?
All our instructors and senior site staff have recieved rigorous training. All crew training and work experience is logged.
Do you use any safety equipment?
Yes - this is an essential part of the experience, we use body armour for the knees and elbows, as well as providing helmets for each participant.
How do I know its safe?
As with any activity, there are risks involved in participating, falls from a Segway are possible and like other hazardous activities such as skiing, horse riding and mountain biking there is a large amount of individual responsibility, which means it is very difficult to measure the danger as each person behaves differently and will conduct themselves differently whilst riding.
We do however try to minimise risks as much as possible with the use of safety equipment, thorough safety briefings and training. Please read a lot of the FAQ's in this section as well our information on the safety page it will help you to understand how we operate and to help to inform you of the risks involved.
On the day of the experience you will go through a process where you will be required to complete your registration process and safety briefing. It is essential that the participant attends registration otherwise they will not be able to participate.
