Travel Insurance

Event management agencies are aware that the Financial Conduct Authority  started regulation of the sale of travel insurance with connected travel services from 1 January 2009. This meant that most travel agents and tour operators had to obtain authorisation either directly with the FCA, or as an appointed representative of an authorised insurer or broker. This could have been very damaging for event organisers who have traditionally arranged travel insurance for delegates on group business, conference and incentive travel.

However, The Eventia Regulation Committee, has persuaded HM Treasury to maintain the exemption from this regulation for event management companies in respect of events which they are managing where the customer is a business with a turnover in excess of £1m per annum.

Event Assured were able to provide statistics dating back to the early ‘90's which demonstrated an exceptional level of consumer satisfaction, and no risk of consumer detriment arising from the sale of travel insurance by professional event management companies. On the contrary, there has been positive benefit  for consumers.

This is a very important concession and, for most agencies, means that they can continue to provide this valuable service to the overwhelming majority of their commercial customers.

 

Event Insurance too!

Event insurance is a vital aspect of risk management in events. We have been working with event management companies since 1990, providing cover for their clients' events. We have dealt with some interesting claims over those years - from relatively minor travel disruption, through to the cancellation and rearrangement of events following 9/11.
