Although the name suggests that the cover is to protect sea cargo this could be misleading. It actually covers freight transported by ship, train, truck or aeroplane.  It could also include cover for damage to goods when stored at a premises or in storage in the UK.

  • It could cover your annual shipment requirements or you could purchase cover when needed for a single trip

How much does a Marine Cargo insurance policy cost?

"I’ve used Premierline for my work insurance for a few years now. They always find me such competitive prices. As a small business owner I really couldn’t afford the prices when I looked online myself especially after having had no work for 7 weeks when Covid-19 first hit. So it was a huge relief to find a policy I could afford and be ready for when work started to pour in."

Mrs Bridger, Cleaning Contractor, Devon (Customer since April 2017)
