Specialist Media Insurance for media 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 £1,000.
