Specialist Christmas Lights Insurance

Protectivity’s Event Insurance policy is designed to protect those who are organising a city, town or village Christmas Light switch-on. The policy includes Public Liability as standard, this will protect you as the orgainser from third-party claims.

Together with liability cover we offer Equipment Cover and Employers’ Liability. It is important to consider these additional cover options, especially the latter if you have volunteers or paid staff.

It is likely that your Christmas light event will only happen once a year, therefore our One-Off Event Insurance policy will be best suited for your needs. If you do organise more than one event in a given year then we also provide an Annual Multi-Event policy.

What Insurance Do You Need For Your Christmas Lights Event?

When organising a Christmas Lights event it’s important to understand exactly what insurance cover you need. These are the four things you need to consider:

Public Liability

Whether it’s a member of the public tripping over some wiring or poorly placed lights causing fire, Public Liability offers vital protection. Should your lights at a switch on be blamed for injury, incident or property damage by an attendee or member of the public, your insurance will handle legal costs and any subsequent settlement.

Employers' Liability

To help with the smooth running of your event you may employ some members of staff such as electricians or technicians. In such a scenario you are required to take out Employers’ Liability with your policy. This will cover you if any of these workers were to be injured and hold your event responsible.

Event Equipment

From the lights to other party equipment, we can add protection on to your policy for the items you use to make your event run smoothly. This includes cover for items owned by you as well as hired or leased equipment.

Optional Event Cancellation Insurance

If you are hosting an event, having appropriate cancellation cover can protect you if it becomes necessary to cancel or rearrange your event. This applies to policies bought no later than 14 days prior to the event.

I was really pleased with how my claim was settled. It gave me great confidence that Protectivity covers me when the worst happens.

Experienced claims handlers

Christmas events are normally a time to celebrate, but unfortunately things can go wrong.

That’s why we like to ensure that when you do have to make a claim, the process is as straightforward as possible. 

Thankfully, the Protectivity customers that have had to make a claim have been extremely pleased at the way that we have handled their troubling situation.
