About Booth Cover

100% dedicated Photo Booth Insurance for the industry by the industry

The Booth Cover Story

Booth Cover is the brain child of Justin Jowett who recognised that the major insurance companies were ignoring the needs of the photo booth industry. They simply didn’t get what we did and often confused us with being photographers or even part of the amusement industry! The result often being inadequate, or worse still unusable, cover and being over charged for insurance items we simply don’t require.  Something had to change.

Together with his long standing insurance broker they created Booth Cover. Australia’s only 100% dedicated photo booth industry insurance. A product made by the industry for the industry coupled with expert advice and support to ensure photo booth operators businesses are properly protected.

As a supporter of the Australian Photo Booth Industry we are proud to be a sponsor of BoothCon.

FAQs

FAQs

What do you define as a ''photo booth'' for insurance purposes?
A robust  and professionally constructed structure designed for the purpose of photographing people in a safe environment.
When is a photo booth not a ''photo booth'' for insurance purposes?
When it is not professionally constructed to meet Australian manufacturing and safety standards.
I run various types of photo booths, which cover should I take out?
  • Public/Products Liability is an absolute necessity as it protects you from potentially disastrous exposures.
  • General Property is strongly recommended as it protects the equipment you generate your income from.
  • Electronic Equipment Breakdown is prudent if you use valuable equipment as it may be expensive to repair or replace should it break down unexpectedly.
  • Trailer cover may be prudent if you use an expensive trailer as your motor usually excludes accidental damage to trailers.
  • Marine/Air Transit cover would be recommended if you import booths from overseas and the supplier does not include insurance cover while in transit.
I built my own photo booth, will you insure me?
Unless you are also a professional manufacturer we will not be able to insure you.
I use my photo booth cameras for general photography use, are they covered?
Yes, if you specify them under the General Property section for their replacement value.
Is my photo booth covered when being transported in a hire car or non company owned vehicle?
Yes, it is. It is covered when transported by any vehicle as long as it is legally driven and registered for road use and suitable for transporting your photo booth.
Do you do business car insurance?
We can provide cover for one-off as well as small to large fleets. Please contact us for a custom quote.
What other insurance cover can you help me with?
