Many Asian couples opt to include one or more ceremonies abroad when they celebrate their wedding.
Asian wedding insurance can provide financial protection for wedding ceremonies whether they are held in the UK or overseas, with no additional cost if the ceremony is held abroad.
If a particular wedding event is taking place abroad there is additional cover for replacing essential documents, should they be lost or damaged.
Some sections of cover are not available for overseas wedding events, however; marquee cover and public liability cover for guests cannot be applied to overseas weddings. Public liability cover is available for the couple, unless they are getting married in the USA or Canada.
Asian wedding insurance recommends you travel to the country where you are having the event or wedding at least 5 days before it is due to take place in order that the ceremony is not jeopardised by any unforeseen short-term travel delays. The wedding transport section of the policy only covers booked transport to and from the wedding or ceremony; it does not include travelling to the country where the wedding or other event is taking place.
If you are holding a reception or other celebration back in the UK after your wedding, that can also be covered under the standard Asian Wedding Insurance policy, providing that it is within 94 days of the first event in the wedding celebrations.
Asian wedding insurance offers a choice of cover levels and options starting with a one-off payment of £59 for the Pearl level of cover with £15,000 of wedding cancellation cover from www.asianweddinginsurance.co.uk .
