Thatch Risk Acceptances (TRA) was established on 1 July 1998 with the specific aim to service the diverse and demanding needs of the thatch risk market.

We are the only company to specialise exclusively in residential thatch insurance and over the years we have built a strong understanding of the requirements linked to this market.

We offer a complete service to our broker base, with a full mandate from Compass Insurance Company (Pty) Ltd to provide quotations, issue policies and manage the entire claim settlement process.

Thatch Risk Acceptances believe in managing a risk and not merely insuring it. We work with the Broker to minimise the risk. Major exposures, improvements and requirements are identified through a comprehensive underwriting procedure, adding value for the client.

Cover is offered for the structure, house contents, all risks, motor vehicles and pleasure craft providing complete peace of mind to the client for his personal insurance.

Whilst we are the thatch experts, TRA also insures log cabins and timber frame homes.
