Minister Seán Fleming welcomes new insurance group scheme for bouncy castle hirers
Seán Fleming, Minister of State at the Department of Finance with special responsibility for Financial Services, Credit Unions and Insurance, welcomes the news that the Irish Inflatable Hirers Federation has secured insurance cover for bouncy castles.
The Irish Inflatable Hirers Federation will operate through a new group insurance scheme. The organisation represents bouncy castle operators around the country.
A group scheme is where a particular sector comes together to access insurance cover that meets their unique requirements. These schemes offer the stronger levels of cover as well as the best premium available.
The Minister of State with responsibility for Financial Services, Credit Unions and Insurance, Seán Fleming, said:
“This is very welcome news for bouncy castle operators. I would like to congratulate the Irish Inflatable Hirers Federation and their broker for getting this successful group scheme up and running. This is great news for families and children throughout the country who will now have access and be able to avail of the fun and enjoyment of bouncy castles. Many businesses have seen success accessing insurance through group schemes. I would encourage businesses who are experiencing difficulty accessing insurance to consider a group scheme with fellow operators.”
