Aon Ausdance insurance: more cover, cheaper price

Beginning 1 January 2016, our approved insurance partner Aon are proud to launch an even better offering on their Public Liability insurance, tailored specifically for Ausdance members.

While the need to employ best practice is a given, it is still common for a dancer or dance business to be sued for things like providing incorrect advice, damage to a third party and/or injury to students. It’s therefore critical to ensure you also have the right insurance in place.

So, having spoken with Ausdance and listened to the feedback of the dance industry and their clients, Aon’s Public Liability insurance, is now available for new customers with more cover, and at a cheaper price.

Key changes

  • Easy choice of $10million or $20 million Public Liability cover
  • Automatically included Professional Indemnity upped to $5 million cover.
  • Prices now start from as low as $324.40
  • Even simpler & quicker journey through Aon’s no-obligation Buy Online platform.

For any questions, visit A on Ausdance insurance  or call 1800 806 584.
