The friendly insurance experts

We're the UK's fastest-growing and highest-rated home insurance provider

About us

Our story

We launched Policy Expert in 2011 because we wanted to put people first. Within two years we became the number 1 rated UK home insurance provider on Review Centre - an accolade we've held ever since.

Today we insure over 400,000 homes across the UK, and are still putting people first. We've been awarded a 5-star rating from Defaqto, and a Crystal Mark from the Plain English campaign for our jargon-free policies. We're also a proud member of the Flood Re scheme that helps people in flood risk areas access affordable flood cover.

Meet our experts

Dom Farr
Dom is our Chief Technical Officer. He splits his time between developing our tech and snowboarding down mountains.
Paul Gildersleeves
Paul is our Chief Financial Officer, so he’s really good with money. So good, in fact, that he owns three alpacas.
Chris Harris
Chris is in charge of renewals, so he helps our customers always get the right deal. Outside the office, he’s a keen golfer.
Steve Jones
Steve is responsible for the Customer Service and Support functions. Outside of work he enjoys most sports, particularly football and is a keen QPR supporter (unfortunately for him!).
Adam Powell
Adam is one of our co-founders as well as our Chief Operations Officer. He's also a proud sausage dog owner.
Dan Prescott
New Business
Dan is our Head of New Business. He’s hard to spook, even when he comes face to face with a Great White Shark.
David Prior
David is our chief underwriter. If he’s not in the office, you’ll probably find him running through the Spanish countryside.
Tara Rist
HR and L&D
Tara leads our HR team. She’s so diligent and determined she once beat Paula Radcliffe in a race.


We're proud of the industry awards we've received for our customer service. But we really love it when our customers let us know how happy they are.

Satisfied customer
First class service, queries answered, problems solved. deal done Thanks
Lets wait and see!
Good price for cover required. Unable to review properly unless a claim is made on the policy (which I hope no claim will be made). That's when a review would be most important and what the prospective policy holders need to see.
Good service
All communications to date have been fine, no issues at all.
Excellent service
Very competitive rate and fixed for two years. Saves searching for another insurer. Friendly, helpful staff
