Event Insurance policies exclude losses due to events that are known to be likely to cause damage or cancellation of your event.  Policies purchased at this time will not be covered for losses resulting from known events; including the California wildfires.

Event insurance as low as $75

You can’t predict the future. And needless to say, sometimes accidents happen. So what should you do when planning an event that takes months of time, resources, and financial investment? Protect yourself with Markel's special event insurance coverage for as little as $75.

Markel offers two different types of event insurance protection – event liability and event cancellation coverage. 

Event liability coverage provides coverage for damages for which you are responsible if there is an accident at your event that causes injury or property damage. Markel's coverage includes:

  • Bodily injury and property damage liability – Up to $1,000,000 per occurrence and $2,000,000 total
  • Host liquor liability insurance

Many venues now require liability insurance.  Markel will name your venue as an "additional insured" for no extra cost on your certificate of insurance.

Event cancellation coverage reimburses you for lost deposits and non-refundable amounts if you have to cancel or postpone your event due to unforeseen circumstances such as:

  • Vendor bankruptcy
  • Accident or illness
  • Extreme weather
  • Military deployment
Save up to 15% when you purchase both event insurance coverages for total protection
