Hi!

I have had a quotation to cover my risk as a freelance interpreter/translator, as follows:

£ 119.70 p.a. - £ 50,000 limit
£ 138.60 p.a. - £ 100,000
£ 195.30 p.a. - £ 250,00

I would appreciate input from experienced freelancers on which of these limits is required and whether this is a reasonable quotation.

Many thanks in advance.

I'm no expert but that doesn't sound good to me Sep 2, 2010

I get £1 million professional indemnity cover through a general business policy which also covers theft, loss, employer's liability, loss of data, people tripping over and suing, intruders getting shot, all that kind of thing, plus buildings cover, all for about £500 a year.

So it sounds like a lot of money for not much cover to me.
