We offer flexibility surrounding what is covered and the type of peril, including but not limited to, excess precipitation, snow, or excessive temperatures.

Cancellation Plus

Cancellation Plus provides cover for events that have been held before and enables the client to recover lost income for events that are not cancelled but may suffer from reduced attendance or early departures due to rainfall. Cancellation Plus is an advanced weather Cancellation Insurance that must be taken in conjunction with adverse weather cancellation cover.

Terrorism Extension

We can provide cover with our Terrorism Extensions to protect financials should the event be cancelled or disrupted due to terrorism, or the threat of a terrorist act.

Non-Appearance Extension

We offer protection if the event is contingent on a key speaker, artist, performer or group. This covers the inability of the performer to fulfil their obligations which in turn leads to the event being cancelled, abandoned, postponed, interrupted or relocated. Circumstances can include death, accident, serious illness or unavoidable travel delay.

National Mourning

National Mourning looks to cover the cancellation of an event following the death of a Royal Family or Head of State member causing the nation to go into a National Mourning period. The parameters of the cover can extended to include Prince Charles, Camilla The Duchess of Cornwall and The Queen if required. Under our Contingency Insurance product, standard National Mourning is covered under Cancellation Cover for anyone up to the age of 65.
