Posted on 15 Oct 11

The Protector Plan(R)for Events, underwritten by Travelers, has been expanded to go beyond weddings and deliver specific coverages for private special events including parties for anniversaries, birthdays, sweet sixteen celebrations, baby showers, holiday parties, retirements and many others. At a time when many consumers are mindful of how they are spending their money, special event insurance provides them with the ability to host the event of their dreams without putting their finances at risk should something go wrong. Consumers planning special events can now purchase the no-deductible Protector Plan(R) for Events from Travelers starting at $160*.

"Consumers invest a lot of time and money planning and hosting special occasions that celebrate major lifetime events and milestones," said Chantal Cyr, Vice President of Personal Insurance for Travelers. "This product provides some peace of mind so the host can take time to enjoy the special event and not worry about how to handle the finances should the event be postponed or if a vendor fails to deliver."

The Protector Plan(R)for Events provides coverage for many problems such as certain severe weather causing event cancellation or postponement, transportation shutdowns, lost deposits, and other headaches that can ruin the anticipated celebration. Consumers may also have the option to add liability insurance with no deductible as an endorsement to their special event insurance policy.

"We recognize that certain celebrations can become quite costly and the Protector Plan(R) for Events can help ensure that the special event is memorable for the right reasons," Cyr added.
