BEING A MEMBER OF THE GUILD GIVES YOU ACCESS TO MANY DISCOUNTS THAT CAN SAVE YOU £100'S IF NOT £1000'S EACH YEAR!
INFOCUS PHOTOGRAPHY INSURANCE
InFocus Photography Insurance have supported the Guild since 1988. They are underwritten by Hiscox and we believe their policies offer the most comprehensive cover on the market £ for £, even before the discount they give us. Their policies are straight-forward with no listing of equipment or clauses that say your equipment isn't covered after 7pm when out of the home like some companies do. They also have a fabulous no hassle 'pay-out' record should the need arise and a friendly, supportive and dedicated manager to look after our interests (Steve Hewlett).
To find out more visit them here or phone 0844 811 8056 or 0161 925 5051. InFocus get nothing but praise from members, with many members saving their Guild membership cost each year, or even more simply by moving over to them. The discount they give members is significant, including 20% off 'all-risks' equipment cover (and unlimited Annual Worldwide cover for Photographic & Technical Equipment is included with that plus lots of other enhancements).
