What is music insurance?


As a student, playing a musical instrument can be both a hobby and serious passion. Specialist musical instrument insurance is designed to help you never miss a beat, whilst protecting your musical instrument against theft, accidental damage, vandalism, fire and flood damage as standard and more. With cover for all types of instruments, from guitar to cello, drums to DJ equipment, as well as accessories, you’ll want to make sure your kit is protected.

FAQs: Musical instrument insurance

Practice makes perfect - but it’s hard to practice your instrument when it’s lost, stolen or damaged. Find out more about musical instrument insurance, and whether you need additional cover away from the home.

Do I need musical instrument insurance?

Insuring your musical instrument can be the sensible thing to do as it will make sure you’re protected against unexpected circumstances should the worst happen. It’s also worth bearing in mind that some instruments can be expensive to replace – so if you couldn’t afford to replace your guitar, piano, cello, DJ equipment etc., then musical instrument insurance could be the best option.

Do I need musical instrument insurance at university?

If you’re planning on taking your musical instrument with you to university, you may want to consider insurance so you’re not left out of pocket in the event of accidental damage, theft, vandalism and more – especially when you’re living on a student budget. While you may already have some cover in place under your parent’s household policy, double check where and if your musical instrument is covered whilst you are living away from the family home.

Is my musical instrument covered under my family’s home insurance?

There may be times when your parent’s insurance policy will extend cover to your musical instruments when you are living away from the family home. However, this is not always the case, so it’s important to speak to the home insurance provider to check what’s covered. Even if cover is provided under your home insurance policy, you may find that it isn’t as comprehensive as the cover you could benefit from with a separate specialist musical instrument insurance policy.

What else is included with musical instrument insurance?

As part of musicGuard’s standard music insurance, you’ll receive cover for theft and accidental damage, as well as vandalism, fire and flood damage as standard - whether inside or away from your home. You’ll also get:

  • Cover in the UK and 30 worldwide
  • Public liability up to £1million
  • Up to £2,000 music equipment hire
  • Loss of earnings cover
  • Interest-free monthly payments
  • New for old cover on your musical instruments and equipment

How do I know which is the best music insurance for me?

It can be tempting to go with the cheapest quote, but you may find that certain policies are cheaper because they exclude essential covers you may require.

Making sure music instrument insurance has everything you need, as well as being an affordable price, will help you decide the right policy for you.
