Our policy is backed by our expert Musical claims team, so whether your violin is stolen or you drop your guitar on the way off stage, you can be assured of a quick and easily process. Our specialist claims team deal with thousands of musical claims every year and accept 97.5% of them***, paying out in as little as 24 hours (once we have got all the information we need)

We have been paying musical claims for over 60 years and worked with many of the UKs retailers and repairers. This means we know the importance of the relationships between these specialists and our customers so we allow you to choose your own repairer.

We've added free legal assistance services to all Musical insurance policies to support your career and personal life.

  • Free legal helpline - professional & personal advice 24/7, 365 days a year
  • Access to over 140 legal templates - from settling complaints and disputes over an unpaid gig, to sorting out your personal finance
  • Easy to use Law Guide - written by lawyers, so that you can check your legal rights at any time of the day or night
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.
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 at a local gig.
If your instrument or equipment gets damaged while on the move, whether that's on tour or heading to a rehearsal we've got you covered.
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.
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.
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.
We will provide cover if a repairer or retailer to whom you have entrusted an item goes out of business and you cannot recover your item or the proceeds of sale of that item.

You can choose to insure each item or group of items on a different basis; from premises only to worldwide cover. You can even add cover for items left unattended in a vehicle.

We also don't charge fees to make changes to policy.

If you suffer a theft or attempted theft of your insured items from your premises, we will pay up to £300 to replace or repair damage to windows, doors and locks.

Especially during these difficult times the speed of response was impressive, including the acceptance of the repair estimate.

Frequently asked questions

You should insure your instrument for the amount it would cost to replace. If you’re not sure how much your instrument is worth, it’s a good idea to have it valued by a professional. You’ll probably be able to get a written valuation easily from your local musical instrument retailer or repairer. We recommend doing this regularly to make sure you’re not under insured or overpaying for your policy.
You need to be over 18 to take out an insurance policy. Anyone under the age of 18 will still be insured while using the instrument, as long as they have it with the (18+) policyholder’s permission.
