Northern Ireland Horsebox Insurance

We are delighted to be able to offer cover for horseboxes based in Northern Ireland. And because of the unique situation of Northern Ireland, being the only part of the UK that has a land border with another country, the cover that we arrange has a special extension that takes care of that. Temporary cover for use in the Republic of Ireland is included for all Northern Ireland resident horsebox insurance clients at no additional cost. This means that you can pop over the border every day or for longer trips. It is only available to Northern Ireland residents whose main place of residence is Northern Ireland.
