GatherGuard Event Insurance Review and Comparison to Other Insurers

Looking for GatherGuard wedding or event insurance? Looking to compare their coverage to other insurers? Not to worry, we did it for you below.

GatherGuard event insurance is provided by Intact Insurance and appears to be the most competitively priced for general liability coverage of $1M/$2M (occurrence/aggregate) limits. Pricing starts at $75 for less than 100 people and it includes a $250,000 limit for damage to rented premises. For an additional (starting at) $25, the damage to rented premises limit can be upgraded to $1M.

However costs can vary from carrier to carrier due to different coverage limits and endorsements. Before purchasing a policy, check your venue’s requirements to ensure that all the requirements are being met, including the need for Waiver of Subrogation and/or Primary Noncontributory endorsements.

In order to make the below comparison as ‘apples to apples’ as possible, the below criteria was used:

  • $1 million / $2 million (occurrence/aggregate) liability limits
  • 150 guests
