Features of our travel agent’s office combined insurance include:

Public liability

Cover to protect the insured against damages being sought for death or injury or damage to property against tour operators or travel agents. This cover includes liability that attaches to the operator for all component parts of a package as defined under “Package Travel, Package Holidays and Package Tour Regulations 1992”. Our policy can include a public liability limit of indemnity of £2 million (with the option to increase up to £25 million).

Professional indemnity

Our professional indemnity cover is here to provide protection against any claims for compensation by dissatisfied customers, where injury or property damage is not involved and there are allegations of an error or omission on the part of the operator or their third-party suppliers. Cover can extend to include sale of insurance extension if required.

Property damage cover

Property damage cover for travel agencies can include: buildings cover, office contents, computer equipment, tenants improvements and shop front and ‘All Risks’.

Dynamic packaging cover

Dynamic packaging is when a travel company puts single components together to form one package: i.e. transportation, accommodation, theatre tickets, car hire. Towergate can arrange cover for dynamic packaging providing the activities do not exceed 25% of the total turnover.
