A slip on a freshly cleaned floor - or a missing handbag - could result in an expensive claim against your business. Depending on the work you carry out, you may want to consider a number of other covers too.

  • Choose from £1m, £2m, or £5m public liability cover
  • Add protection for your staff and your equipment
  • Enjoy 5-star customer service and claims support
  • Add or remove covers and adjust your limits, with no extra fees
  • Pay monthly or annually, it’s your choice
  • Instant access to policy documents
