Frequently asked questions
Do wedding videographers need insurance?
Wedding videographers should consider having insurance in place. It is usually a requirement of the venue that the videographer has public liability insurance, as you will be working with members of the public. You’ll usually need to show proof of this before you’re able to start work - when you arrange cover with Markel, you'll receive your proof of insurance document instantly.
Does the policy cover the use of drones?
No. We are currently unable to cover the use of drones or other types of aerial vehicle as part of your business' activities.
What limit of cover should I choose?
Many clients and industry bodies with regulatory requirements will require you to have a minimum level of cover in order for you to undertake a contract, so it's worth checking this before you arrange cover. If you're unsure, or it's the first time you have arranged cover, give some thought to a worst-case scenario and the likely costs involved in putting your mistake right. We offer a range of limits on insurance, so you're sure to find the right cover for your business.
