The Allsure insurance package is the cornerstone of the company`s short-term
insurance. It`s truly a comprehensive personal insurance offering, containing
all the different types of cover that you need - and you also have the option of
paying a monthly or a yearly premium. The advantage of the latter is that it
allows you to take advantage of discounted premiums. Extended cover and optional
cover add-ons are available in addition to the core package. There are also
business and corporate insurance products available.
The core package of Allsure is cover for the following: buildings and
household contents, personal accident and all-risk cover, motor vehicle cover
(including motorcycles, caravans, trailers and pleasure vehicles), personal
computer cover, legal costs cover and bereavement. You have the option of taking
General All Risk cover or Specified All Risk Cover (where you can specify
certain valuable items for insurance and replacement purposes).
Life cover is offered in the form of cover against financial loss that is
caused by disablity or death - so it`s a combination lifestyle protection
product. There are two main packages on offer - the Life Plan Range, that
includes the options of taking life only cover, life and disability cover, or
accidental death and disability cover. Then there`s a new product being
advertised: Greenlight Life Cover. This is a standard disability and life
financial protection plan.
On the business insurance side there are packages that allow you to take risk
cover against the loss or incapacity of important people in a business, as well
as general business insurance and insurance for specific professionals (such as
medical and retail).
For corporate insurance purposes the company will administer retirement funds
and group life insurance.
