An open day, a neighbourhood street party or an open-air concert: as the organiser of a commercial event you want to ensure that you enjoy insurance cover in the event of property damage and personal injury to third parties. This unique event liability insurance that you can conclude online means that there's nothing standing in the way of a great event – except perhaps the weather.

Online event liability insurance – the basics

For clubs and associations

  • that don't have business liability insurance and organise events that are attended by their members as well as by their members' relatives or guests.


For individuals

  • who organise events and whose personal liability insurance does not provide cover for commercial events.
