Frequently asked questions
When should I get craft stall insurance?
At Markel, we suggest you consider taking out craft stall insurance as soon as you require it. Having this insurance in place ahead of selling your crafts at a fair or market will ensure that you’re suitably protected should something happen.
Do I need public liability insurance to sell at a craft fair?
When running your stall at a craft fair, there’s a high chance that you will have lots of interactions with members of the general public. As a result, public liability insurance for crafters, especially those with stalls, is strongly recommended. This cover can help protect your business if you’re faced with a third-party claim, helping you manage the costs involved. What’s more, some event organisers may require you to have this type of cover in place as a condition of entry.
How is Markel regulated?
Markel is regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority and Prudential Regulation Authority. You can find out more about this on the Financial Services Register.
