Santa can now insure against chimney calamaties this Christmas

Santas gearing up for the festive season can rest assured that any merry mishaps won’t spell a blue Christmas thanks to Simply Business.

The UK’s biggest business insurance provider marks the start of Advent with the launch of Santa Claus insurance. By answering a few simple questions about their favourite Christmas carol and confirming that they wear a red suit, seasonal entertainers of all shapes and sizes can get annual public liability cover quickly and easily online.

As the countdown to Christmas commences, everyone from Saint Nick himself to his elves can be covered to carry out their yuletide tasks without hesitation. Getting stuck in the chimney, having a sleigh crash or suffering a burst pipe in the grotto won’t stop Santa from delivering joy to the nation.

Fiona McSwein, Chief Customer Officer, commented:  “Santa and his dedicated band of elves and reindeer are the hardest working team in the world. With the responsibility of creating a merry Christmas for all resting on their shoulders, everybody at Simply Business wants to help out and make their job easier. Our Santa Claus insurance aims to give winter helpers peace of mind at their busiest time of year, so they too can enjoy the season of good cheer.”

Simply Business’ Santa Claus insurance protects professional entertainers for up to £10 million against compensation claims for injury to a member of the public, or damage to their property.
