     Government Live Event Reinsurance Scheme

    The UK government is partnering with insurers to offer cover for event cancellation due to Covid-19 restrictions imposed by Government or local authority.

    Key points of the scheme:

    • Runs from 22nd September 2021 to 30th September 2022. Cover must be purchased at least 8 weeks prior to the event (except for first 12 weeks of scheme).
    • The policy covers expenses only. No cover available for loss of revenue
    • The event must have been cancelled due to instruction from Government or local authority only. It does not include reduced attendances or non-appearance due to Covid-19.
    • Non Covid-19 cover must be in place with a participating insurer in order to access the scheme.
    • Premium is 5% of insured costs, plus IPT. Deductible is 5%, subject to a minimum of £1,000.
