Should you have Barmitzvah/Batmitzvah Insurance?

Should you have Barmitzvah/Batmitzvah Insurance?

The venue is booked, the caterer is ready to go and the DJ and photographer are all sorted.  A Barmitzvah and Batmitzvah party are fabulous affairs, but they do not come cheap! To give you peace of mind for your Simcha, insurance is recommended – don’t take the risk for the sake of a small insurance premium.

Insurance is one of those things you hope to never need to use.  But sometimes the unexpected can happen, whether that’s a vendor not supplying as they had agreed, theft, loss and/or damage or even extreme weather conditions.  Event insurance can also cover illness or injury to those people key to the Simcha, like the Barmitzvah Boy, Batmitzvah girl, parents and grandparents.  Event insurance will help cover the costs should things not go to plan and it is important when looking for the right policy, you need to ensure it covers the important things for you.

A typical Barmitzvah or Batmitzvah far out-weigh the cost of an average party, so it is important to understand the pay-out limits. For example, there is no point in choosing a policy with £10,000 event cancellation insurance, when it cost you £15,000 in the first place.

Event insurance is vital for any event, but as we have just discussed, it is even more important for a Barmitzvah or Batmitzvah due to their cost. With the right policy in place, you can rest assured that any problem will be covered. All you now need to worry about is the Barmitzvah Boy or Batmitzvah Girl remembering their portion! ‘Mazel Tov’
