Specialist insurance for the Media

Through working with Media organisations, Federations and Journalists we have developed insurance policies 'designed by the media, for the media'.

Our policies have been designed to provide all members of the media including the local people they employ with comprehensive and affordable insurance. All our policies have 24/7 claims support from Intana Assist so wherever you are working on assignment, you can be sure you and the local people you employ are properly protected and supported.*
Unlike most insurance, we cover being transported in a military vehicle including aeroplanes and helicopters, our cover includes  War – declared or not, Rebellion, Civil War and Terrorism.*

Our policies are 100% reinsured by Lloyds of London, .
*Subject to policy conditions.
