Bouncy castle & inflatable insurance this summer

Summer is here, which means it’s the season for barbecues, garden parties, weddings and lots of inflatables. It’s all fun and games and no one really wants to think about insurance or legalities. Or, at least, until they need it. Therefore getting it in place before you think you need it is essential.

Check the hire company’s insurance

Making sure that the person or company that you hire your inflatables from this summer are adequately insured in the event of an accident for public liability, employers liability, and loss or damage to equipment will give you the extra peace of mind that if something were to happen, or somebody within your party was to be injured, that there will be an insurance policy to cover it.

Perhaps you’re having a bigger event or wedding, and you need the coverage for that too, our comprehensive insurance policy schemes ensure that you can get coverage dependent on your needs for exactly the purpose. We source from our dedicated panel of insurers a policy that is bespoke and catered towards your requirements.

For the Hire Company

There will no doubt be a lot of demand for your inflatables this summer as people flock to outdoor parties, host kids parties complete with bouncy castles and fun inflatables, or, perhaps, you offer something different for weddings and other events. Providing your customers with that extra peace of mind of having insurance in


To protect both yourself and your party, you should carry out some checks yourself when hiring the company and/or inflatables, and make sure you know exactly what is included with the hire. Especially, in terms of set up. You’ll want to be certain that the hire price includes drop off, set up, or for more complex inflatables, that an operator from the company will be around to oversee the day’s activities.

If the inflatables aren’t secured into the ground, this could be a health and safety hazard, so check what the setup includes as standard. Or, if you’re a provider, you might want to give full details to your customers about what is included with the hire.
