Leisureinsure underwriting agency specialises in amusements and entertainment

Leisureinsure underwriting agency specialises in amusements and entertainment
May 29, 2014

Leisureinsure Australia Pty Ltd is a new underwriting agency focussing specifically on the business of insuring events and activities within the world of amusements, entertainment and leisure.

Since commencing operations in April, Leisureinsure Australia has started making significant inroads into the market with its straight-forward and simple to buy on-line insurance products aimed at smaller amusement, entertainment and leisure activity owners and operators.

Leisureinsure Australia’s specialist in-house underwriters have more than 100 years combined experience of underwriting amusement, entertainment and leisure risks, have a clear understanding of industry needs and can tailor insurance cover specifically to meet industry requirements.

With policies underwritten by Lloyd's of London (the world’s leading specialist insurance market, conducting business in over 200 countries and territories worldwide) and affiliated with Leisureinsure in the United Kingdom, Leisureinsure Australia can be relied upon to provide cover that is affordable, reliable, appropriate and tailored to the Insured’s individual needs.

Leisureinsure has been highly successful in providing leisure insurance solutions in the UK and Ireland to over 6,000 customers every year since 1996.

Leisureinsure Australia’s spokesperson, Steve Wells explains “we feel that the leisure insurance market in Australia has not been very user friendly, particularly for the smaller leisure activity owner or operator.

“Our research told us that there was a big market for a simple on-line product with good cover and backed by first class security and that is why we have launched Leisureinsure”.

Leisureinsure is the first on-line specialist insurance product that is aimed primarily at the smaller end of the amusements, entertainment and leisure industry.

There are a variety of covers available and the enquirer can choose those that are relevant to their business. The policy can be purchased online and documentation is mailed electronically, immediately once the transaction is complete.

Wells adds “often small operators are caught by minimum premiums even when they only want event cover for a day or so. With Leisureinsure we make it really simple and cost effective to buy either for a few days or an annual policy. The product is affordable, reliable and tailored to fit the operators’ needs. Already we have had a number of customers recommending us to their friends and business associates, so business is really starting to build.”

To access instant cover online at competitive prices go to or call Leisureinsure on 1300 789 070 to find out more.

As of June 2015, Leisureinsure Australia Pty Ltd is no longer accepting new business or offering renewal of any existing business.
