"All Risks" Insurance Cover for Collectors
Extensive coverage is provided by this policy devised by Wardrop & Co. Ltd. in conjunction with, and underwritten by, Certain Underwriters at Lloyd's.
The Certificate provides cover against all risks of physical loss, destruction or damage to the collection and other philatelic material whilst anywhere in the United Kingdom, including Exhibitions and exchange clubs and whilst accompanying the Insured or his representative on any journey in the United Kingdom or sendings within the UK by post or by rail, carrier or other means.
Cover may be extended to include overseas exhibitions or transits at an additional premium.
The standard Certificate restricts cover away from the main location and in transit to £15,000, however, this limit may be increased upon request.
