【商业英语】Lesson 9： International Trade -Insurance 国际贸易-保险
Helen：I'm calling to discuss the level of insurance coverage you've requested for your order.
Henry：I believe that we have requested an amount twenty-five percent above the invoice value?
Helen：Yes, that's right. We have no problem in complying with your request, but we think that the amount is a bit excessive.
Henry：We've had a lot of trouble in the past with damaged goods.
Helen：I can understand your concern. However, the normal coverage for goods of this type is to insure them for the total invoice amount plus ten percent.
Henry：We would feel more comfortable with the additional protection.
Helen：Unfortunately, if you want to increase the coverage, we will have to charge you extra for the additional cost.
Henry：But the insurance was supposed to be included in the quotation.
Helen：Yes, but we quoted you normal coverage at regular rates.
Helen：We can, however, arrange the extra coverage. But I suggest you contact your insurance agent there and compare rates.
Henry：You're right. It might be cheaper on this end.
Helen：Fax me whatever rates you find there and I'll compare them with what we can offer.
