What does music insurance cover?

Want to find out even more about our cover? If you're a student and you're wondering about what's included, then we've answered a few questions for you below.

Can I get insurance as a student?

Our insurance is available to a wide range of musicians, including students - whether you’re studying a music-related degree or not! If your instruments and equipment are with you at university then you’ll want to keep them safe.

If you’re living at your Halls of Residence, then we can cover your instruments against theft should you suffer a break-in, as well as covering you for accidental damage, storm, flood and fire damage

Claims for theft or attempted theft need to be able to demonstrate forced entry.

Does my insurance cover my equipment in Halls of Residence?

Your instruments and your musical equipment can be covered inside of your halls of residence. If you’re studying away at university and have your instruments with you, then we can keep you covered if your Halls of Residence is broken into and your equipment is stolen.

Your Halls of Residence will need to have been securely locked in the event of your instrument being stolen. Our cover also includes protection against accidental damage, storm, flood and fire damage.

Am I covered to take my instruments abroad?

Yes! Our music insurance includes up to 30 days of worldwide cover as standard so you can take your instruments abroad with you. If you’re planning on heading away for even longer, then our Global Travel option gives you 365 days of cover, anywhere in the world.

You must keep your Instruments and equipment in a purpose-designed equipment case while in transit. Public Liability insurance for musicians does not extend to North America.
