Travel Advice

Advice for travelling musicians

Do you travel around the UK, Europe or Worldwide with your musical instruments and/or equipment rehearsing and performing? If so, our policies can be tailored to meet your travelling needs.

As we know how valuable a musicians instrument and equipment is we have pulled together a few tips for you to consider:

  • Always pack musical instruments securely in a robust and lockable musical instrument case or other suitable protective container.
  • Arrive at the airport in plenty of time so that the musical instrument can be searched and then re-packed securely.
  • Wherever possible, keep the musical instrument with you as hand luggage. This will minimise impact damage and possible deterioration caused by fluctuating temperatures in the aircraft hold.
  • Load musical instruments into overhead lockers carefully or place them under the seat if there is space and don't forget to take them with you when you get off the plane.
  • Always check your musical instrument carefully when collecting it from the airport baggage carousel and if you suspect damage has occurred report it to airport personnel immediately and complete a baggage irregularity report. (Make sure you obtain a reference number).
  • Keep a close eye on your musical instrument at all times while in the airport terminal. Allianz Musical Insurance has received several claims for instruments stolen from baggage trolleys.
