As a mutual international war risks club, UK War Risks is here to serve its Members in the event of a claim. Unlike mainstream insurers, we have no external shareholders; our focus is on helping our Members to settle each claim as smoothly as possible, from start to finish.

Initiating a claim

All Members have to do to initiate a claim is call our emergency contact number or contact our claims experts direct. You will then have an experienced, proactive team on your side, ready to help you manage the situation going forward. 

Support throughout the claim

Unlike commercial insurers, we support and inform Members throughout the process. Although an indemnity cover, the settlements can closely follow expenses as they occur, easing cashflow and minimising disruption and impact at what is often a difficult time for you and your crew.

Supporting discretionary claims

In the complex and ever-changing landscape of international shipping, it is inevitable that some claims may fall outside the Rules of the Club. In these circumstances, the Board of the Club, made up of Members, will look into each case.

The UK War Risks advantage

When something happens, it will be the experience and expertise of our team that makes the difference.
