Hosting an Adult Birthday Party: Do You need Insurance?

It is good planning to consider adult birthday party insurance. No-one wants to think of what might go wrong; however, events do sometimes have to be cancelled or the unexpected happens. You may find yourself being served with a lawsuit from your friends or family for a wide range of different reasons and Front Row event insurance is there to help make sure that you do not lose money – or sleep - as a result.

6 Reasons to consider when hosting an Adult Birthday Party:
  1. Does your venue require you to provide evidence of short term event insurance? Read your rental contract before you sign it.
  2. Are you hosting the party at home? Check with your home insurance broker to see if you are covered. Parties over a certain size are most likely not covered.
  3. Have you rented furniture, a sound system or a marquee? Are you responsible to insure the equipment you have rented? Check your rental contracts.
  4. Your guests could trip on temporary carpeting or slip on a drink spill on the floor and injure themselves. Adult Birthday Party liability insurance will cover you if you are sued by providing a free lawyer to defend you and paying the judgement costs - up to the limit of the policy -  awarded to your injured guest.
  5. Do you need protection for the gifts in case they are stolen?
  6. What happens if your marquee blows away and injures other people in the park? Lawsuits would be covered with Adult Birthday liability insurance.

Most birthday venues will require you to have event insurance in place. Often the venue will tell you in their contract the short term venue liability amount required.

Adult birthday party planning should include online adult's birthday party insurance. 

Special event liability is available online with no need to talk to an insurance broker. Our cheap event policies start at $130 and certificates for your Adult Birthday venue are free. A one day event insurance quote is also free:  a fast quote is available any time of the day or night in just 3 minutes.

  1. Your guests may accidentally damage the venue you have rented. Does your venue require you to provide evidence of short term event insurance?  Yikes. Check your rental contract.
  2. Are you hosting the party at home? Check with your homeowners broker to see if you are covered. Parties over a certain size are most likely not covered.
  3. Have you rented furniture or the sound system or a marquee? Are you responsible to insure the equipment you have rented? Check your rental contracts.
  4. Your guests could trip on temporary carpeting or slip on a drink spill on the  floor and injure themselves. What if your friend or relative is forced to sue you?  Awkward?   Will your homeowners insurance cover you? Probably not. Kid’s Birthday party liability insurance will cover you if you are sued by providing a free lawyer to defend you and paying the judgement costs awarded to your injured guest.
