You will need to buy primary liability insurance in the country you are in, with at least the compulsory liability limits for the jurisdiction. Our policy will cover $500,000 in excess of that policy. If you don't get a local policy, you will not be covered for that compulsory limit amount, or first $25,000, whichever is greater.
