Public Liability

Your choice of between £1 million and £10 million worth of Public Liability in case of injury or damage to a third party or their property caused by your business’s actions or by an animal in your care.

Key Cover

In the event that you lose a client’s keys, you are covered up to £10,000 for new keys, replacement locks, the cost of re-setting intruder alarms and associated call-out costs.

Care, Custody & Control

Up to £50,000 worth of cover is provided for the animals in your care (up to £25,000 per animal) in the instance of accidental loss, injury, illness or death of that animal in your care, custody or control of that of any of your staff.

Close Family Extension

Your close family members are included under your policy as standard. Therefore, if you employ your husband, wife, son, daughter or any other close family, you do not need to take out Employers’ Liability.

Similar to the Care, Custody and Control benefit, Non-negligent cover will protect you against accidental loss, injury, illness or death to an animal in your care through no fault of your business.
