What will your Insurance Cover?

There are four broad sections of our policy for one off events, providing you cover in varying ways. Public Liability comes as standard, but each of the remaining three benefits can be removed or altered to suit your needs.

Public Liability

You can choose £1m, £2m or £5m worth of Public Liability in your policy. This will protect you should a member of the public suffer an injury or cause accidental damage to third party property and blame you as the event organiser for the incident.

Event Equipment Cover

This provides you with cover against accidental damage, loss or theft of equipment owned by you, or for which you are legally liable for (e.g. leased out or hired), whilst at, or in transit to, the event. Up to £20,000 of Event Equipment cover is available. 

Employers' Liability

If you require any helpers, volunteers or employees to work at your event (unless they’re sub-contractors with their own Public Liability), you must take out Employers’ Liability. £5 Million Employers’ Liability can be added to your policy at a small additional cost.

Event Cancellation

If you are forced to cancel your event, we can provide up to £10,000 worth of protection should adverse weather or the non-attendance of a key individual means your are unable to continue with your event as planned.
