Due to the recent surge in Uber and Air BnB we have become concerned that you may have failed to advise either your Broker (ARM Insurance) or if directly arranged, your own Insurer, of changes to the use of your Motor Vehicle and/or Home and subsequently you may not realise that you do not have adequate or any insurance in the event of a claim whilst providing these services.
