  1. Pay by the month (Payment instalments)
    Premiums payable by instalments may be subject to minor adjustments (upwards and downwards) due to rounding and financial institution transaction fees may apply.

  2. Online discount terms and conditions
    A premium discount of up to 10% is applied to your first year's premium when you buy a new Business Insurance Pack policy online.

    Please note that the online discount doesn’t apply to Commercial Vehicle cover, Goods In Transit cover or the following Management Liability covers: Directors and Officers Insurance, Employment Practices Liability, or Crime Insurance (which are only available from our contact centre).

    This discount isn’t applied at renewal.

  3. Minimum premiums may apply
    Any discount and/or entitlements may be subject to rounding and only apply to the extent that any minimum premium isn’t reached.

    If you’re eligible for more than one discount, we apply them in a predetermined order. This means the effect of applying any subsequent discount will be applied to the reduced premium amount after applying any prior discounts. For example, the aggregate effect of applying two discounts consecutively means that you won’t see the full benefit of both these discounts.

    Discounts don’t apply to taxes or government charges. No discounts are applied to Commercial Vehicle cover.

  4. Management Wrongful Act(s)
    Management Wrongful Act(s) means any actual or alleged breach of duty, breach of trust, act, error, omission, neglect, misstatement, misleading statement or breach of warranty of authority. It doesn’t include any employment-related discrimination, wrongful dismissal, workplace or sexual harassment, or other employment practices breaches as defined in the PDS, committed by any Insured Person.
