What Is Umbrella/Excess Insurance?

Umbrella and Excess Insurance – also known as Umbrella Liability and Excess Liability – are types of liability insurance bought as an addition to the coverage limits of an existing insurance policy.

By purchasing Umbrella/Excess insurance, the policyholder is able to claim additional amounts if the limits of the existing coverage are insufficient.

What Is The Difference Between Excess and Umbrella Insurance?

Excess insurance provides extra coverage if the policyholder needs to claim an amount in excess of their existing policy. Once the underlying primary policy is exhausted the Excess insurance will provide further cover up to an agreed limit.
