What Insurance Do You Need For Your Party?

When organising a party or gathering it’s important to understand exactly what insurance cover you need. These are the main things to consider.

Cancellation Cover

Unfortunately, sometimes parties have to be cancelled for reasons beyond your control. This could be due to adverse weather, a key person being unable to attend or failure on behalf of a supplier. With Cancellation Cover in place, you have some protection to claim back some of the costs from catering to hall hire.

Equipment Cover

From the marquees to tables 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.

Public Liability

If you are hiring a local venue, be it privately owned or run by your Local Authority, it is likely that you will be required to have Public Liability. This cover protects you as the organiser if a member of the public, including those attending the party were injured due to the actions of the organisers.

Employers' Liability

If you have any volunteers that help you with the set-up and running of your party, it’s worth thinking about Employers’ Liability. This will cover you as the party organiser if one of these helpers, or any other member of staff is injured and holds you liable.

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

Fantastic claims handling

Parties 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.
