Iraq insurance – can you still get cover?

2 July 2014

Despite being widely reported over recent days that it is almost impossible to get Iraq insurance for companies, contractors and individuals, Bellwood Prestbury are continuing to provide cover for new and existing clients.

Peter Bellwood explains: “As a specialist Lloyd’s Coverholder who have been providing high risk Iraq insurance for oil and gas, security, construction and IT clients for many years, we are currently still able to offer cover where others may not be able to.” 

Bellwood Prestbury’s Iraq insurance includes risks from war and terrorism and can cover:

  • Personal Accident insurance
  • Life assurance
  • Medical and medical evacuation cover
  • Kidnap and ransom insurance 
  • Cover for vehicles and assets
  • Cargo insurance
  • Other bespoke requirements

Peter added: “Inevitably, given the volatile situation in Iraq, some types of cover are now harder to organise and some premiums are increasing. Each case needs to be individually assessed, but so far our team has been able to issue cover for new clients.”
