Hen parties are so much fun. It’s the time for you and the girls to get together, hit the town or go abroad for a long weekend and enjoy the bride-to-be’s last night of freedom in style. With all the excitement and anticipation, it can be easy to forget to cover yourselves. Though not lawfully required, we recommend getting yourself insurance cover. 

No doubt the hen party is going to be wilder than you originally expect – such is human nature. And, depending on where you and what you do, you may have different sorts of issues to consider. A hen party in Snowdonia, for example, will usually involve lots of action and adventure activities in the outdoors which will increase risk. A weekend in a European city with local drinks and dancefloors come with their own peril. 

A UK Hen Party 

If you choose to hit a UK city for your hen party, then we have some helpful tips. The most important cover for a domestic hen party a cancellation cover. If you have a large group, then you may be paying individually but it all adds up to a lot of money. 

If the hen party – for whatever reason that is out of your control – doesn’t go ahead, then having good cancellation cover will ensure you don’t lose out on money. Fizzbox has a 100% cancellation policy on most activities. This means that you’ll receive your full deposit back if you decide not to go ahead.
