Professional Indemnity Trade Insurance FAQs

How do I know how much cover I need?

For their own liability reasons you are unlikely to find an insurance company who will advise you exactly on how much cover you need. It is essentially your responsibility to take out adequate cover although our advisors can go through your options over the phone and explain how you might want to calculate this cost. Alternatively, many industry organisations or professional bodies will likely be able to offer your some advice.

I only work from home, do I still need professional indemnity insurance?

Professionals who send out products, offer advice of some kind, or provide some services from their own home can still cause harm for which they may be liable. For this reason it’s important you don’t make an assumption that you can’t do any damage when tucked away in your own home, and speak with an advisor about your risks.

What happens if I retire or cease trading?

When you stop trading or retire we recommend you still have something called ‘run off’ cover. This means that claims raised against you for an event that happened while you were still trading are covered (a claim can be raised any time up to 3 years after the fact). When you are ready we can arrange cover for you for this.

Do I receive a discount as a member of a professional association?

Many of our customers can get a discount on their insurance simply by being a member of a professional association or industry body. What’s more, for many of these, we also offer profession specific policies too. This means you can get specific cover with great discounts! Speak to one of our advisors to find out how much you can save.

Can I pay in instalments?

If you would prefer to spread the cost of your policy you have the option of setting up a Direct Debit to pay your premium in equal monthly instalments through our preferred provider, Premium Credit Limited (PCL).

To find out more about PCL and direct debit payments, select Direct Debit.

To understand more about how PCL work together with Towergate, please read our Regulatory Information.
