Cheapest wedding insurance Wedding insurance with higher cover levels

As price and excesses (at £0 to £99) are likely to be less of a consideration for wedding insurance than other types of cover, we’ve ranked policies according to how many of 10 areas the insurers offer the highest level of cover in. Six are shown below. Click on the link below each table for more features.

Where policies offer the highest level of cover in an equal number of areas, they are ranked according to price.

Some items may be included in the same policy section for the purposes of cover levels, such as rings, flowers or gifts.

Low-cost policies are the insurers’ cheapest ones that meet our criteria (cover of at least £5,000 for cancellation, 50% of the original price for rearrangement, £2,000 for attire, £1,200 for photos and film, £1,500 for rings; transport and financial failure of suppliers are covered).

High-end policies are insurers’ most expensive products.
