A cover note is a short term contract of insurance that can be put in place very quickly and with a minimum of paperwork. The purpose of the cover note is to give you immediate cover for your vehicle and to allow you a short period of time to obtain all the required information and submit it to us along with your payment in order to obtain your full policy. The length of this short term cover can vary and will be shown on the cover note.
It is important to ensure that all information we request to finalise your policy is provided to us by the expiry date of your cover note. If you do not provide this to us within the cover note period then your cover note will expire and cover will cease. If there are extenuating circumstances as to why the outstanding information cannot be provided to us before the cover note expires then you should contact us in advance to discuss an alternative solution.

An Agreed Value policy is a policy where the value of your vehicle is set and agreed upon at the start of the policy and does not change for the duration of the policy period. Unlike market value policies where the insured value of your vehicle can vary with market forces, an agreed value policy gives you certainty over the insured value of your vehicle for the duration of the policy period.
