These selected words or phrases would be in bold font, so easy to identify.For example, the definition of the key word ‘land’ and one example of its use within the wording is detailed below.

Then one example contained within a sentence

Insurers are aware that policy wordings should be in plain English, easy for a layperson to understand and giving a fuller explanation is part of that committment. The use of key words and phrases isn’t just restricted to the policy wording and keyfacts summary, it is also used on the schedule which specifically details the policyholder’s cover in force.
