The J.F.Dunne Insurances Bus, Coach, Minibus and Small Public Service Vehicle Scheme is underwritten by AIG Europe S.A.

Launched in March 1980 as a motor-only product, it has evolved to a comprehensive package now covering the vehicle, the driver, the passenger, the public and protecting today's professional bus and coach operator in this highly responsible and potentially catastrophic risk area.

The JF Dunne Insurances insurance package covers all the services now offered by today's professional transport operator, whether it is school transport, special needs, scheduled services, city services, private hire or omnibus. The variety of work now undertaken by bus and coach operators demands a broad range of transport modes, including trains, trams and other specialist carriage.
