High-risk international insurance for the media

Bellwood Prestbury provides journalist and media insurance for reporters, crews and production staff working on dangerous assignments where standard cover won’t be valid. News crews covering wars and political unrest, documentary teams embedded with military personnel and production companies filming in remote regions can all be catered for.

When the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office, the State Department or another government body advises its citizens to move out, there is always a trickle of media people heading in the opposite direction. We have years of experience in helping production companies, freelance reporters, and filmmakers to travel to war zones, terrorist areas or remote regions with the right insurance cover for their precise needs.

We can also provide you with Trade and Political Risk insurance to protect you from losses due to conflict or confiscation, and bespoke policies to cover overseas operations and fixed investments.

Our experienced team can arrange cover for you, for your business liabilities, your equipment and your employees, covering the risks you may encounter on your trip.
