What does Hermes Cover cost?

How to calculate the expected cost of your cover.

The costs of cover for your export transaction comprise fees and premiums. The fees are charged for the costs associated with the processing of an application. As matter of principle, premiums are risk-based and account for the major part of the costs. When the premium is calculated, the horizon of risk, the country and the buyer risk but also your share in the risk (uninsured percentage) and any collateral that may exist are taken into account. Consequently, lower risks result in lower costs than high risks.
