    Certificate or policy (insurance)

    Hi everybody. I have seen both possibilities, and I gather that there some kind of difference between them. Perhaps "policy" has a legal meaning and "certificate" is the document itself? Thanks.

    In my experience, the Insurance Certificate is just one part of the entire policy. When I last bought travel insurance, the policy itself ran to some 16 pages of text. However, I was only obliged to print the Certificate and carry it with me because it had the salient information on it. The same goes for my car insurance. They send me several pages of print, and a booklet but there is just one Certificate which I would have to produce to the police or any other authority to prove that my car is insured.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
