On Monday 12 October 2020, the UK Government announced a new three-tier alert level system was being brought in across England, to be enforced from 12:01am on Wednesday 14 October. It is expected that Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland will follow a similar but tailored version of the same system.

How Towergate supports your business during the Covid-19 pandemic
We understand that this continues to be an uncertain and worrying time for individuals and businesses across the UK and we are committed to supporting you.
If you are unsure whether the restrictions will have an impact on your insurance cover, including whether levels of cover need to be amended, increased or reduced as a result of any changes you’ve had to make, please speak to your usual Towergate Insurance Brokers adviser who will be able to help, or email TIB@towergate.co.uk.
Likewise, if you are facing temporary financial difficulties, please contact us as soon as possible to discuss your options. Cancelling or reducing your policy cover is often not the right approach to take, despite the temptation to save cost, as you may find yourself underinsured should an incident occur now or in the future. We are here to help and support you.
