International Insurance Coverage


To mitigate the effects of unforeseen or uncertain losses and damages in respect to the importation of items using the services of DeliveryDash, we extend to you an international insurance coverage. The International Insurance covers eligible items for air shipments, by default, with certain exceptions and circumstances, which is explained in our terms of service.

Your DeliveryDash Invoice will automatically be billed an Insurance charge of one percent (1%) for every USD100.00 or any part thereof, based on the stated value of the Supplier’s Invoice for items being imported into Trinidad OR a minimum of USD1.00. In the absence of the Supplier’s Invoice, the value applied by Customs and Excise will be used to determine your insurance charge.

The International Insurance covers a maximum value of up to USD$500. The coverage applies to eligible items as described, with the exception of the following:

(i) Any item exceeding the limit of 50 (lbs) pounds (volumetric or actual weight);

(ii) Perishable and all fragile/breakable items;

(iii) Any single supplier’s invoice exceeding the value of USD$500.


This is to ensure that the proper insurance coverage is secured for the item and customers are protected in the event of an unforeseen circumstance.


All televisions inclusive of monitors or displays being shipped must be accompanied by the Supplier’s Invoice upon shipping to Trinidad. The insurance calculation for these televisions is 10% of the value of the item or any part thereof.

For example, if the item is valued at USD$1250.00 the insurance will be calculated based on the value of US$1300.00. The insurance charge will therefore be calculated at USD$130.00 and this value will be billed to your freight invoice.

NOTE: When a Television arrives in Trinidad and Tobago, checks are done upon arrival to ensure the television is in good condition, further checks are made to ensure that it is received in good condition and that there was no issue in transit to Trinidad. Final checks will be done in the presence of the customer before the television leaves the driver.
