As a direct result of Brexit, with effect from 1st March 2019, Holistic Insurance are no longer able to provide insurance for those resident in Ireland. We have been working over the last few months to provide a solution for those Irish residents who hold insurance through us.
Message to our current Irish policyholders:
Given that we are no longer able to invite renewal for those resident in Ireland, we have made arrangements with Brian Mullins Insurance Brokers (BMIB) in Sligo who have full authority from the Central Bank of Ireland and Insurers in Ireland to transact this business. We have been working with Brian Mullins Insurance Brokers for over 15 years and they are specialists in Malpractice and Liability Insurance. As you can appreciate, with the uncertainty of Brexit this has not been a quick or easy process, however we believe that we have found the best solution for our clients through Brian Mullins Insurance Brokers.
So what happens now? Your existing policy will continue to be in force up until your renewal date, at which time you will be able to renew your insurance through Brian Mullins Insurance Brokers.
How will this affect my Policy? This will not affect your Policy cover in any way. A few weeks before your renewal date, you should receive an email with a link that allows you to transfer your insurance to Brian Mullins Insurance Brokers, if you wish. Without an email address you will not be able to transfer, so please ensure your email address is up to date.
If you have a claim made against you, in the current year, or any previous year of insurance held through Holistic Insurance Services, we will continue to handle any claims and guide you through what can be a difficult time.
What if I want to add a new qualification or have a query on my existing Policy, who do I contact? You may continue to contact us at Holistic Insurances up until your next renewal date, after this date your point of contact will be Brian Mullins Insurance Brokers.
We at Holistic Insurance Services wish to thank you for your past support, sadly this turn of events is outside of our control.
