Goods in Transit Insurance is insurance that covers goods and cargo from becoming damaged or lost when being transported between locations. Transit insurance can cover both personal goods or business goods that are in transit. Goods in transit insurance can cover goods transported both locally and internationally.

Goods in transit insurance cover goods, both personally and business goods, whilst in transit both locally or internationally.

Goods in transit cover may include:

  • Damage to the goods from fire, water, flood, explosion, impact, vandalism or damage whilst goods are in transit.
  • When the vehicle transporting the goods suffers overturning or a collision.
  • Theft of the goods from forced entry whilst goods were secured.

Goods in transit costs are determined by a few key variables:

  • Goods that are being transported; value and type of goods.
