Overview

Marine has always been about more than just water and we're continuously increasing our underwriting appetite, so we can now cover more risks than ever before. Our marine products provide a range of comprehensive protections, which are handled through our dedicated underwriting centres and complemented by our specialist claims centre, all based in the UK. We specialise in Cargo, Freight Liability and Commercial Hull and Liability insurance.

Key covers explained

Cargo

  • Covering goods being shipped around the world and/or while in transit in the UK
  • We can cover UK and European domiciled exported or importers, manufacturers, suppliers, wholesalers, retailers and cargo agents.
  • NEW - Cargo stockthroughput wording - Our new wording is a cradle to grave policy giving your client one policy that covers cargo from the moment it starts it’s journey until it has been accepted at the receiving door – across both land and sea
  • NEW - Enhanced Cargo policy wording – we’ve made a number of cover improvements and increased inner limits including Transit Clause Extension which gives extra cover of 96 hours whilst the goods are loaded on the vehicle before the commencement of transit.
  • Coming Soon – New certificate system - Aviva Marine are at the forefront to utilise modern technology, so it is easier and better for customers to facilitate their business with us, so we have invested in a new certificate system. This will go live later this year.
