How much is event insurance?

Pricing can be as low as $175 for events with 250 people or fewer.

Here are a few policy features:

  • Short term coverage, up to $5,000,000 in General Liability Coverage.
  • Additional insured certificates for your venue and vendors at no additional cost.
  • Optional coverages for equipment rentals and event cancellation available.
  • Liquor Liability available if required.

Key factors that will determine price:

Here are a few key variables that will help determine your rate.

  1. Number of guests attending
    Quotes are based on 1-250 guests; 251-500; 501-1000; 1001-1500; and 1501 – 2,000 guests. However, for events over 2,000 guests, we would be happy to prepare a customized quote.
  2. Event location
    Will your event be hosted at a public venue or on your personal property?
  3. Is liquor being served?
    Price will depend on whether or not liquor is being served at the event. Therefore, you’ll need to purchase a special event policy that includes liquor liability coverage.
  4. Liability limits
    Minimum liability coverage for event policies is $1,000,000. Similar to auto insurance, this may sound like a lot, but could be eaten up easily in the case of a serious injury. However, a $2,000,000 liability limit doesn’t cost much more, so always consider increasing it – especially if you have a large number of guests at your event.
