Anyone know if any of the insurance companies are giving away freebies or doing good deals for mobile therapists at the mo? have had a scout round on the net but nothing really takes my fancy, just wondered who other mobile geeks used and would reccomend, thanks :)

Must admit I have never known an Insurance company to do freebies or special offers.
I also am with Professional Beauty, good cover , reasonably priced.

REFERENCE: ABT

I know it's sometimes bad form to criticise competition, but factually you need to be aware that ABT's policy;

(a) has a £200 excess - so any small annual savings you make may be wiped out with even a small claim

(b) excludes some claims arising from ‘Error or omission in advice given or treatment undertaken’ and ‘Injury, loss or damage caused by any product used in the treatment or supplied for the aftercare’ – so some claims may not be covered anyway

(c) is what is called a ‘Claims Made’ policy, which covers claims only if made whilst their policy is in force. This means that if and when you decided to stop insuring with them, if a claim came in a few days, weeks, months or even years later, you would be uninsured unless you paid extra to buy what is called ‘run-off’ cover; again, offsetting savings.

The last one is an important one to check with ANY policy you might take out - a Claims Made policy does not offer you the cover that a Claims Occurring one does.

It's also worth looking at other benefits of membership; BABTAC has lots of free and discounted stuff on our website for members (including FREE business seminars in 2008 - worth a look at www.babtac.com/best).

Hi, I have a brilliant policy with the Beauty Guild and everytime you need any advice quickly you just give the Guild a call and thyre soooo great. Highly reccomended.
I would reccomend that the cheapest isnt always the best and you need to make sure that you also have cover for your equiptment at home as most home policy's dont cover business equiptment and also a policy for your equiptment in the car. Again I have all of mine through the beauty guild as they are reasonably prices and civer everything properly and were highly reccomended to me. Good Luck

Hi,

You can find out more about Guild Membership here.

I know insurance isn't the most exciting subject but you can find, as Philip has stated that some policies differ greatly. We have put together an article on what to look for when choosing an insurance policy, which you can have a read of here.

If you need to know anything else, feel free to send me a PM.
