Who we are
We're quickly making a big name for ourselves in the world of car insurance. We’ve sold over 2 million policies since we launched in 2008.
We offer Defaqto 5 Star rated car insurance
Our car insurance provides quality cover and includes a comprehensive range of features and benefits including a courtesy car*, £1500 of key cover and 21 days driving in Europe, as standard. Read more about our cover
We're competitive on price
We're constantly monitoring the market to make sure you get the best price possible. We’re pretty hot on fraud too, which helps us keep our premiums lower.
We're not all talk
If you make a claim, we’ll look after you. You'll be assigned a Personal Claims Advisor, enjoy free collection and delivery of your vehicle, a 5 year warranty on all repairs, mobile repairs and estimates where possible, and like for like vehicle replacement.**
We're nice people!
All of this is backed up by support from our friendly call centre in the United Kingdom. The call centre is open at sensible times including weekends and our claims line is open 24/7, 365 days a year.
Behind the scenes
We have more than 600 people across our offices in Haywards Heath and Manchester, who work very hard to make sure you get a good product for the right price and a good level of service throughout your policy.

We like to think we’re a bit different to other insurers because we’re striving for simplicity in an industry that’s overrun with complexity and jargon. The concept of ‘simply driven’ is at the heart of everything we do both internally and externally.
Don't just take our word for it
92% of customers rated us good or excellent in the past six months!
We’re always keen to hear what our customers think of us, so we’ve partnered with Feefo, an independent review company. Take a look at our reviews page to read feedback from real customers who bought car insurance from us.
