That’s a tough question to answer without first establishing what cover you exactly need. Perhaps you want your premises covered, or maybe you just want the legal minimum cover required such as liability or vehicles? The good news is that we at AIC as brokers, have more insurers available on our panel than nearly any other firm, so we’re bound to find you the most competitive market price on whatever your insurance needs.
We’ll always recommend starting with a conversation with our helpful and friendly staff, so we can assess your needs and find the right bespoke insurance solution for you.
Great question, and the insurance you need for thatched property is not that different to normal home insurance in what it covers. You still want protection for your most valuable assets being the buildings and/or contents. The real difference is which insurer will you end up with, and how much you’ll pay in premiums. Thatched properties are termed as ‘non-standard’ in the world of insurers, and there’s far less insurers willing to cover them.
We at AIC have access to most insurance carriers willing to quote for Non-Standard homes, and we always recommend you start by having a conversation with one of our experienced staff.

We at AIC always recommend to air on the side of caution, and disclose everything to ourselves, and we can help you decide if this information needs to be told to insurers, which normally it does.
There are different rules to follow from various sources, as an insurer may ask you to declare convictions in the last 10 years, whereas the rehabilitation act may dictate that you don’t need to declare it for more than say 5 years. DVLA may give you a different answer again for motoring convictions! Talk to one of our friendly consultants and let us help you.
Using a dedicated insurance broker provides benefits completely unseen when using a comparison site. With AIC, you’re afforded your own dedicated account manager who specialises in the cover you are seeking. Getting to know our clients is paramount to our customer service dedication and getting to know you AND your requirements is part of that. When you use a price comparison website, you are quite literally just a number and just a click-cost.
With any type of cover it is important to present insurers with all the information that will or could possibly affect the way they look at the risk. If this is not provided, insurers have the right to walk away from a claim, to change terms at the time of a claim, or reduce an amount paid depending on which law the insurance adheres to.
A good insurance broker (like AIC) should not be afraid to ask the right questions of a potential policy holder, or suggest ideas that will help in the risk management of the cover in question. Insurance is there to help you in the event of a problem, and it makes no sense to cut corners on something so important. We’re here to help you!
We hate call centres as much as you! Our phones will never be answered by a call centre and only by a staff member. You only deal with your allocated account advisor, so you know who you will be dealing with every time you need to reach out to us.
There are two main ways you can pay your insurance: the full sum to cover the next 12 months upfront, or in 12 monthly instalments over an annual period.
The major drawback to monthly payments is paying by instalment usually makes the total cost of cover higher than it would be if you paid in one go. This is because the insurance company is effectively lending you the money to pay the premium, so it will charge you what amounts to interest on the repayments you make across the year.
By paying In full you are clearing your entire payment all in one go, meaning the insurance company won’t have to lend you the money and you won’t be due any premiums on the loan.
Great question and one we can of course help you with! Business insurance premiums are arrived at by the analysis of your likeliness to have a loss. When you apply for coverage, your information will be analysed by an underwriter who is responsible for determining whether or not they will consider writing a policy for you. Each business has completely different circumstances and we highly advise you to get in contact with us so we can understand and advise in the best possible way.
