What you need to know

Here are some of the most frequently asked questions we receive about our event cancellation insurance.

What is Public Liability insurance and do I need Employers Liability?

Public liability insurance provides protection from claims arising from accidental injury to third parties or third party property damage. However this will not protect you against injury to your employees on site, for this you will need Employers Liability insurance. Although many organisers believe they have adequate cover under their standard office policy, this is not always the case and it is important to check carefully. Specific Employers Liability cover, for the event itself, may be needed.

Does the policy cover Terrorism?
Standard cover will exclude terrorism and additional cover will need to be arranged. The extent of terrorism cover available can vary considerably between insurers and we will be able to advise you on the differences and arrange suitable cover.
Given all the global events of recent years, such as erupting volcanoes, terrorism , unpredictable weather and epidemic diseases, is it still possible to arrange cover for such unpredictable events?
Yes it is possible to get comprehensive cover to include past, and of course future, unknown events. However, if a disaster is already known about, then cover becomes difficult to attain. Consequently the earlier you arrange protection for your event the wider the cover is likely to be.
