  • Peace of mind

    "I can't say enough with how happy I am with the purchase I made with Markel Insurance for my wedding. Markel helped me recoup nearly $400 when the video company I had hired went out of business with no notification. The claim was approved in minutes and the claim paid, via check, in a few days! Wedding planning is stressful enough without having to worry about vendors failing to provide the service you paid for. Having the cancellation insurance not only reimbursed me the money, but made that experience a super small "blip" in the process, and a WIN for Markel because then now have a great referral in me! I would recommend to anyone I know planning a wedding to buy a Markel policy!"

  • One less thing to worry about

    "Everything I needed was taken care of with the first telephone call.  I needed event insurance for my daughter's wedding and you took all the worry out of the process.  You had all the questions for me and I felt very good about the coverage.  Thanks for taking one headache off my plate for the wedding."
