You can view the entire list of treatments we cover and decide which policy is the right one for you. Don't forget that with the 'Beauty' policy all the treatments are included (including that in Nail/Spray Tan and Hair). If you are unsure simple give us a call, our expert advisors will happily explain exactly what you need.
We understand that professional development is very important for you to grow your business so we have strongly focused on making it as easy and cheap as possible for you to stay adequately covered. Just give us a call at any point during your policy life. Our advisors will be able to let you if you are already covered for your new services or if you need to upgrade.
We are not affiliated with any associations, guilds or other official organisations, thus the insurance premium is all you need to pay. This does not affect the level of quality or service we provide.
We accept any qualification that provides you the legal right to practice your trade in the UK. You do not need to submit copies of your qualification certificates unless there is a claim that has been made against you.
We have found that automatic renewal is not the best practice for our customers so we don't do this, we will however, send you a reminder around a month before the policy is up to make sure you don't go un-covered!
These variables differ greatly from one service or practitioner to another and for some it is not even cost effective to insure their kit. This being so, we have simple add-ons to include this but it is not in our standard policy.
We provide cover to protect you when a client makes a claim against you where they are dissatisfied with the outcome of their treatment but no injury has been caused. This cover will assist in dealing with the complaint against you and pay-out for costs involved.
While you are training for additional treatments and carrying out your case studies on members of the public our policies will cover you for these studies.
