Public Liability insurance will cover you in the event that you injure someone not working for your business, or damage their property, due to your negligence. Our insurance policies also include treatment liability. If you employ anybody, you will need to buy Employer's Liability insurance to insure them in the event that they are hurt at work due to the negligence of your business.

Salon insurance will also cover public and employer's liability and treatment liability. With our salon insurance policy, you can pick and choose what you cover. You can include your stock, contents, fixtures and fittings, tenant's improvements (or the building if you are the owner), business interruption, personal accident, book debts and money. Obviously, the more cover you buy, the higher the premium will be.
