Aon are now proudly the approved insurance broker for the clubs and individual members of Amateur Beekeepers Australia.
Public Liability cover for amateur beekeepers has been arranged and designed by Aon based on the number of hives you keep and provides you with cover in case a third party sues you for injury or property damage done to them by your bees, or from the products you sold.
Aon has also arranged Personal Accident cover for members which can cover you for accidental injuries that occur as a result of your beekeeping activities.
Please note that an amateur beekeeper is deemed by the insurer to be an individual with less than 100 Hives.
This cover is not designed for commercial beekeeping operations.
