Professional Indemnity Insurance

Your company’s survival and personal financial security depend upon protecting yourself against the impact of a potential lawsuit or demand for compensation. Almost any firm or individual that improperly performs services can cause a client to suffer an economic loss – and mounting a defence without insurance is expensive. The impact of even a baseless claim can be devastating. Would your company have the resources, time, and expertise to defend against such a claim?

Claims can arise from:

  • Failure to collect payments from customers within periods set by suppliers
  • Scheduling and booking errors
  • Failure to advise customer with regard to visa or country entry requirements
  • Failure to examine and advise customers on carrier operating rules
