Blue Insurances has announced a new Professional Indemnity and Office insurance scheme, exclusive to the Irish travel trade. The scheme has been designed specifically for travel agents and has different options to suit business needs, including stand-alone Professional Indemnity insurance or combined with Office insurance if required. A scheme for Irish tour operators is also available.
Professional Indemnity premiums start at €420 for a limit of indemnity of €325,000, with four levels of cover available, and there are six levels of cover for the Office insurance, with premiums starting at €350.
Recent communications from the ITAA have highlighted the importance of holding adequate Professional Indemnity insurance with extended liability cover and the real need for travel agents to protect themselves against potential high cost claims.
Blue Insurances is committed to bringing competitive insurance to Irish travel agents, increased competition and driving change to the insurance market. Joint Managing Director Ciaran Mulligan said: “We have been working on developing this new scheme over the past 12 months and are delighted to now announce its launch.
“Looking at existing premiums and cover levels in the Irish market place, we have seen a need to bring a new fresh approach here at the most competitive premium where possible. We are constantly working hard to ensure our business brings competitiveness together with quality service to the Irish market.”
