Event Planner Insurance — Simplified.

Why do I need an event planner insurance policy?

As an event planner, you’re always hustling to the next gig. You need insurance coverage that’s there just when you need it, whether that’s five minutes before a last-minute show or months before an important event.

The General Liability insurance arranged by Thimble is designed to respond to incidents involving bodily injury and property damage. For example:

Bodily Injury
At a media event, your client trips over a microphone cord and injures himself.

Property Damage
You are arranging the centerpieces for a wedding reception that you have planned. While setting up the floral arrangement at the bride and groom’s table, you knock over the wedding cake that has been set there for the reception.


How much does small business insurance for event planners cost?

General Liability insurance policies for event planners start at $5/hour with $1 million in coverage and $0 deductible.

Add as many Additional Insureds as you’d like for free.

Our affordable liability insurance policies for event planners are possible because they are based on the length of your coverage, whether for an hour, a day, a month, or longer. This flexibility allows you to purchase coverage exactly when and for how long you need it, making it one of the most affordable options on the market for on-demand event planner insurance.


How quickly will I get a Certificate of Insurance?

Instantly. We’ve digitized the entire experience so that you’ll receive a certificate of insurance in your inbox immediately after purchasing a policy with Thimble.

You can also add and modify your Additional Insureds as many times as you’d like directly from the Thimble App.
