How Much is Entertainment Insurance?

There are two entertainment insurance policies you can choose from—an annual policy or an event policy. Annual payments start at $199 for the year or $14.93 monthly for 12 months. The annual policy is ideal for performers and entertainers who need constant coverage year-round.

The event policy is active for 1–3 days and starts at $59. If you are performing for a single event or a weekend, the event policy is just right for you. You can add additional insurance limits to this policy to meet your venue’s requirements.

Keep in mind that these prices are for the base policies and you can add additional coverages to your policy at an extra cost.
