Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What details will I need for a quotation?

Your business details, property construction, security information, claims history and sums insured. However, it’s also useful if you have your existing policy schedule or renewal notice to hand.

Do you provide cover for Post Office money?

Post Office money is actually covered by 'The Post Office', however, if an employee has stolen money which belongs to 'The Post Office' a limit of £5,000 is provided under our policy.

How can I pay for the policy?

You are able to pay by debit card over the phone or instalment facilities are usually available. Should you wish to pay by monthly instalments full information as to the payment basis will be provided once you decide to proceed with cover. Please note that the implementation of the EU Consumer Credit Directive from February 2011 means we have to provide specific information to you so you are able to decide if that basis of payment is right for you. We are also legally obliged to advise you of the interest rate applicable and APR and inform you of who is providing the credit facility and our relationship with them.

You also need to be aware that whoever provides the instalment facility may carry out credit checks which might involve use of a credit reference agency.
