Extending your cover

Policy Expert: Optional Extras

Legal Expenses Insurance

£25 per year (Monthly payment option available)

The cost of legal proceedings can be prohibitively expensive, particularly since the introduction of much stricter eligibility rules for Legal Aid. For just £25 per year, give yourself peace of mind knowing our trained advisers and partner solicitors are never more than a phone call away.

  • Up to £50,000 towards legal expenses to defend your rights, using one of the largest UK solicitor firms, Irwin Mitchell.
  • Identity Theft Cover provided as standard.
  • 24/7/365 no obligations helpline staffed by trained legal professionals.
  • Comprehensive cover including Employment Disputes, Personal Injury, Home Rights (e.g. boundary disputes), Probate and Local Education Authority disputes, Tax investigations and even Criminal Prosecution Defence.
  • Specialist tax and ID Theft helplines.
  • No excess to pay.
