Premier Care Mobility Equipment Insurance

Key Facts


Introduction


Our Premier care and Premier Care Plus policies are designed for owners of mobility scooters and power chairs valued at up to £7 000. Premier Care offers a wide range of standard cover, with Premier Care Plus providing additional benefits for customers requiring truly comprehensive insurance protection.


This document includes a general summary of the insurance provided by both of these policies. For precise details of cover including the conditions and exclusions that apply, the policy documents should be referred to. A copy will be supplied upon request.


For mobility equipment purchased new, you will have the option of insuring for 12, 24 or 36 months. For used mobility equipment, you will normally be allowed to take out this insurance for a period of 12 months only. Prior to expiry, all policies will be offered renewal for a period of 12 months.
