Weather Insurance When You Need It
Weather insurance is a type of protection against a financial loss that may be incurred because of rain, snow, storms, wind, fog, undesirable temperatures or other adverse, measurable weather conditions.
AFIG can help you or your clients be prepared for unpredictable weather patterns. Event weather insurance protects revenue losses caused by adverse weather conditions that reduce attendance and the sales of concessions, food and parking.
Summary of Coverage
Event weather insurance is a risk transfer tool that protects against adverse weather conditions that can reduce revenue from sources such as ticket sales, concessions, food and parking. Typical buyers of event weather insurance include fairs and festivals, concerts, sporting events, parades and air shows. It can provide coverage for many perils including rain, snow, wind, lightning and adverse weather.
For example, with a rain insurance policy through AFIG, festival organizers can be assured that if rainfall keeps people from attending their event and revenues drop, they will be covered. In this case, a weather policy would pay out if 0.2-inch of rain accumulation occurred during the key event hours of 4:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. If it rained more than 0.2-inch, a check is written to make up for the festival’s losses.
Event Weather Insurance
A large investment is made to organize a special event, fundraising venue, or an organized sales event. You can’t risk having such events without protection. If the weather doesn’t cooperate, you are out a pile of money in advertising and numerous other costs.
Weather insurance protects your event against adverse weather conditions which may reduce revenue or increase expenses. It can also be used to increase sales for retail operations as well as stabilize a budget for certain businesses where their revenue is tied solely to weather.
This policy of coverage works well in several different scenarios including protection for outdoor special events, film productions and sales promotions. Whether you are looking to protect an event from lost revenues and/or unrecoverable expenses due to rainy weather or plan on running a sales promotion whereby you offer to reimburse customers if it rains on a certain day, Allen Financial Insurance can structure a policy that protects your bottom line.
Scope of Coverage:
- Fire, earthquake or other damage causes your venue to be unusable.
- Specific weather conditions such as floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, blizzards, lightning, or any other life-threatening weather condition. These weather conditions must prevent the majority of the audience from reaching the venue where your event is taking place.
- Unavoidable travel delays (aircraft or other modes of transportation), equipment delays, mechanical breakdown, power failures.
- National disaster.
- Any other cause (not otherwise excluded) beyond your control.
Rain is typically the greatest concern for event hosts, but in some circumstances the trigger of coverage could be snow, fog, lightning, hail, wind or some combination of several different severe weather patterns.
Proceeds from our Weather Insurance may be used to rent a tent, snowplow fees, or any expenses that you incur due to rain and/or snow at your event. Example: You purchase $10,000 in Rain Insurance Coverage. It rains during the covered time period. We don’t ask for receipts or proof of loss. We just send you a check for $10,000.
