Better safe than sorry. We can quote most types of events over the phone in a matter of minutes.

Event contingency insurance or cancellation insurance is here to cover you for any financial losses if your event was to  to unexpectedly cancel.  Any disturbance or unforeseen circumstances resulting in your event becoming cancelled, postponed, reduced/expanded, relocated, or interrupted can have a big financial impact on you and your business.

Adverse Weather Extension

Adverse weather is the main reason event contingency insurance is needed. Insurance that has adverse weather included covers you if the weather conditions during or leading up to the event are so bad that running the event would be deemed dangerous. In this case, you should ensure that your insurance provides you adequate cover for the cancellation of the event. Events can be curtailed, interrupted, postponed, relocated, abandoned and cancelled, all due to affects of bad weather. Adverse weather insurance covers you for weather conditions that:

Occur on the day of the event which you consider to be a serious threat to the safety of all parties attending the event.

Occur whilst on the insurance in which the relevant authority or government consider the weather conditions to be a serious threat to the safety of those attending the event. (E.g storms or high weather warnings).

Occur whilst on the insurance, which prevents you from undertaking necessary set up to proceed with the event. This could be due to safety concerns for those responsible for set up or due to physical impossibility.
