Our Remuneration

We receive a commission from our underwriter for the services we provide on an intermediary basis. The commission is calculated as a percentage of premium, and it varies depending on the profitability of the underwriter for all permitted policies arranged for the underwriter through nib Travel Services Europe Limited (UK Branch). The commission range is between 40-50% net after payment of taxes and levies.


You may be entitled to compensation from the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) if we are unable to meet our obligations. 

This will depend on the type of insurance transacted and the circumstances of your claim. Further details are available from the FSCS (

Insurance Premium Tax Rates

Insurance Premium Tax (IPT) is a tax on general insurance premiums. IPT, either at the standard rate or higher rate, is accounted for on most general insurance premiums. While most taxable premiums are subject to the standard rate of 12%, the higher rate of 20% is applicable to all travel insurance. Learn more about these rates
