  • FAQs

    Frequently Asked Questions for Boat / Pleasure Craft Insurance.

    • Can I obtain an Agreed Value Policy?

      Yes you can, we will discuss the various cover options available under the policy. You may need to provide us with a valuation from a Marine specialist / valuer in order for the Insurer to agree to the nominated value.

    • I found a really cheap quote online, why is it so cheap?

      Insurance is like any other product, you pay for what you get. There are many different insurers offering policies in different shapes and forms.

      Service is extremely important.

      This is the difference between a claim being paid out over night and a claim being paid out painstakingly over a year. Cheap premiums are on offer because costs are being cut elsewhere.

      Coverage is also extremely important.

      This is the difference between your claim being paid out or not paid out at all. Quite often, this results in financial burden in the long run.

    • Am I entitled to a discount if I have not had any claims in the past for my boat?

      Yes you are, this works in a similar manner to motor vehicle policies, and the no claim bonus discount works as follows:

      • Rate 1 – you will receive a 25% discount
      • Rate 2 – you will receive a 20 discount
      • Rate 3 – you will receive a 15% discount
      • Rate 4 – you will receive a 10% discount
      • Rate 5 – no discount will apply
    • Can I pay my premiums by the month?

      Yes. All insurance offered by Citycover can be paid by the month through premium funders. If you chose to use the premium funder’s service, your monthly instalments will be tax deductible.
