Cover for when you need it
Our temporary cover policy covers instruments that you might not usually have insured, or have borrowed from a friend or retailer.
You can use temporary cover for whatever you need it for. Some of the most common uses include: touring, school trips, one-off events, approval cover, and transporting items that are on a premises only policy, for example, when you move house. Whether you’re borrowing an instrument from a friend or an organisation you can relax knowing that their valuable instrument is covered while in your trust. You don’t need to be an existing customer to take out temporary cover.
Our temporary cover can only be arranged by speaking to our customer service team. You can select the level of cover you need and ask our team any questions you may have.
Lines are open Monday to Friday 9am - 5.30pm
Theft, loss, fire and accidental damage
No matter how careful you are with your instrument, accidents are unavoidable – and nobody can help being the target of theft. If the worst ever happens, we’ll be there to help you get back to playing
Unlimited professional use
We'll cover you if you play music as either a professional or semi-pro, whether that's touring with your band or getting paid for performing with an orchestra.
Damage in transit
If your instrument or equipment gets damaged while on the move, whether that’s on tour or heading to rehearsal we’ve got you covered.
Loan instrument hire costs
We know that for many musicians, being without an instrument for any length of time simply isn’t an option. With our loan hire cover, you’ll always have something to play if your own instrument is lost or damaged.
Free cover for £500 worth of accessories
You’ll automatically get up to £500 cover (each valued between £10-£250, with a per claim limit of £500) for musical accessories and anything else you use to play your instrument.
Depreciation after a repair
If after a repair, your instrument has reduced in value due to the damage, we’ll cover your instrument for the amount it has reduced by.
Making a claim is quick and easy
Tell us about your claims as soon as possible but no later than 60 day after the damage or loss happens.
Check out our handy claims guide to help you claim if the worst happens.
We pay out 97% of claims we receive and there’s no excess on our instrument claims, so you can get back to playing as soon as possible.
