Available levels of indemnity
We believe that teachers and students alike should be adequately protected so we provide all of our policy holders with an indemnity of £5,000,000 which is the amount required by most Councils, the NHS and other similar authorities and institutions. A higher limit of £10,000,000 is available at an additional cost upon request.
The Foyht policy wording is exceptionally wide and will be adequate for most individuals and micro enterprises. If your business has developed beyond “you” it may be beneficial to consider your requirements on a Business Combined basis to include other Commercial Insurance Risks.

Offering more when more is needed
It is undeniable that life for us all has changed since March 2020. Someone has pressed a great big ‘reset’ button on the way we work, rest and play. Life has changed and we must change – if we can. Well, of course we can! We can breathe deeper and think clearer. What was rushed and important is no longer so. That is not necessarily a bad thing.
There are new problems, new issues, new challenges. Our ambition is to help you meet and overcome all of those things without having to spend huge amounts of time and energy on fretting about them.
The world, which was moving rapidly in a digital direction, has just taken an electronic leap into the unknown: through necessity. Grasp and use the technology – or sit back and watch. The world of Webs and Dark Webs, of phishing and whaling, of GDPR regulations and fines are a serious concern. To assist we have designed a package of benefits that will help – often without additional cost.
Data Breach Alert
As a small business, you will have a small database. (As a larger business you will have a larger data-base – but it will be equally vulnerable)
We provide a data breach monitoring service. If anyone gains unauthorised access to your database and contacts your clients we will alert you immediately: enabling you to take any remedial action appropriate to the circumstance.
This is an included/free service
Registered Post and Online Signatures
Sometimes you need to send a registered letter. This facility enables you to send a registered e-mail providing full traceability and evidence that the email has been received/opened/read.
This is an included/free service
If you want, all e-mails can be sent registered – but then a small charge will apply.
