Public Liability & Professional Indemnity Insurance for £115! *Members Offer

Did you know you could now pay even less for your insurance?
Aaduki Multimedia has signed an exclusive deal with the Societies to provide insurance to its UK members at fantastic prices that are not available anywhere else in the market!

‘Aaduki has always offered value for money policies but these deals are so good that we simply cannot offer them to everyone! You can now get Public Liability up to £2 million and Professional Indemnity up to £75,000 for the amazing cost of £115 but only if you’re a member of the fastest growing photographic organisation in Europe. We also offer great rates for equipment and other covers too!’

This insurance offer would normally cost you over £180 so there is an
instant saving of £70 towards your membership fee straight away! Plus we will throw in a photographic gift worth up to £65 for the price of the
postage and packaging and don’t forget the free Legal Help-line cover The
Societies offer as well!

Now is the time to be part of the Societies and benefit from the excellent
Insurance and other offers exclusive to our membership.
