Specialist Media Insurance for creative and digital businesses

The business of media and digital production involves some major implications for insurance, so there are good reasons for choosing a specialist broker who understands the way you work.

Many non-specialist insurers have fixed (and inaccurate) ideas about the industry – charging high premiums to protect themselves against the perceived high costs of delays and over-runs, unsociable hours and “high-risk” activities.

La Playa's exclusive Media Portfolio covers all your risks under a single policy - avoiding expensive duplication and administration. It’s underwritten by Beazley, an award-winning insurer with first class underwriting knowledge and claims experience in this sector.

What if...

  • A network failure prevents you from earning your usual revenue?
  • Your office / studio is flooded or damaged in a fire?
  • Your business is taken to court by a member of public - and you have to pay compensation?
  • An employee is injured at work?

La Playa's Media Insurance covers include:

  • Property: covers your own and hired-in equipment, stock and artwork, computers, technical equipment breakdown and general office contents
  • Business Interruption: protects income streams during physical and technological disruptions, and covers alternative hire and continuing hire charges
  • Employers’, Public and Product Liabilities: protecting your legal liability
  • Money: fees, subsistence expenses
  • Legal expenses
  • Directors’ & Officers’ Liability: protecting your key people
  • Professional Indemnity: protects you against allegations of negligence, breach of duty or mismanagement

We can also arrange:

  • Travel Insurance: for location shoots & reconnaissance

Premiums start from £560.

Media Portfolio Film Reel Bouncing

“These guys are the only insurance people I will tolerate speaking to these days, as they are actual humans (with both a brain and a heart!) and offer very good packages too - they answer calls and emails promptly and when I had an issue recently with my bank were very helpful to get it fixed.”

Advice You Can Trust

…from an expert who understands you

Tech-based business is 24/7, global and borderless, exposing you to new risks and liabilities - often in unfamiliar places. As the law struggles to keep pace with technology, insurance can provide a real safety net if you fall foul of changing legislation.

  • Independent professional advice
  • Relationship-based service: right beside you when you make a claim
  • “Can do” culture
  • Seamless insurance across UK and US

What sets us apart is the advice we offer: we really know our stuff. We listen, we analyse, we advise you on how to eliminate or mitigate your risk, and how to protect yourself against what remains. We may not be the cheapest option – so if an off-the-shelf policy and call centre queues work for you, be our guest. But if you need some advice on identifying your risk areas, how to structure your insurance most efficiently and effectively, and how to adapt it to the changing dynamics of your work or life – with hand-holding and close attention to detail - you’ve come to the right place. Welcome to the family!
