The policy insures a person(s) or corporate body(ies). This is known as the Insured Party. The policy also extends to cover:

  • Partners, Officers, Directors, Employee or Volunteer of the Insured Party, whilst acting within the scope of their duties for the Insured Party.
  • Principals, with limitations, due to contractual requirements. Please contact us for further details about this definition.


This policy only provides protection for public liability cover.

Any claim arising from the consumption of alcohol will attract a higher excess which will be noted on the quote.

There are however some limitations around BYO alcohol for certain events.
