What is all Risk Cover?
All Risks cover is cover for accidental damage or loss of property while away from your home. There are two types of All Risks cover – Specified and Unspecified All Risks.
Unspecified All Risks is where you choose an overall value for goods that you want to insure away from the house. This will usually be for smaller value items (typically with a maximum value of €1,000 per item)
Specified All Risks is for individual items with a higher value. You will have to provide a description of the item i.e. 3 Stone Diamond Engagement Ring and a value (insurers may look for a valuation for more expensive items). The typical type of claim that we see for this cover would be where someone loses an item or it is damaged like a Diamond falling out of the mount on a ring.
Specified items will also normally be covered for up to sixty days while abroad also.
Claims in the Last 3 Years
Like the Subsidence & Flood Claims, if you have suffered a loss within the last 3 years it can be difficult to get a quote you are happy with. Our expert handlers have the knowledge required to approach the correct markets for you, in order to get you the best possible price.
Increase Policy Excess to Reduce your Premium
If you want to reduce your insurance premium you could consider increasing the Policy Excess. The Excess on an Insurance Policy is the portion of a claim that you have to pay yourself.
Insurers will allow a discount on the premium as a higher Policy Excess reduces the total they will have to pay in the event of a claim and it also reduces the chances of small (expensive to process) claims being submitted.When thinking about increasing your Excess you should consider what your attitude to risk is!
If you feel that you are likely to have a claim and you do not want to carry a larger portion of the risk yourself you should choose a lower excess.
If however you feel that you would be unlikely to make a claim for a relatively small amount you should opt for a larger excess and benefit from the premium savings available.
Discounts for Having a House Alarm
If you have an approved house alarm, it is important to let your insurer know so that you can benefit from cheaper insurance as most companies will give a discount for having an alarm. Having an alarm may also save you money as some insurers who require an alarm to be installed may not quote without one and this broadens the number of competitive insurers that are available to you.
However, please remember that if you are getting an alarm discount, the insurer may have a condition or warranty on the policy stating that the alarm has to be working and activated every time you leave the house!
