Though you may not have a business premises, many home insurance policies do not usually extend to cover property used for business purposes. Media and entertainment insurance through Aon ensures that, should you need to claim, you are appropriately covered for business equipment. (Please note, equipment cover is optional. You must select this option in order for your equipment to be covered under the policy.)
The freelancer online product includes public (and product) liability for up to £5 million. You then have a choice on what covers you would like to add, from employer’s liability, contents, equipment, business interruption, professional indemnity and personal accident.
You can pay for your policy in full by debit/credit card or by direct debit (over 12 months). For short term policies, you will need to pay in full by credit/debit card.
This insurance cover is arranged by Aon and Underwritten by Hiscox.
