Award winning home and car 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're trusted by over 800,000 home & car insurance customers across the UK, and we’re still putting people first. We’ve been awarded a Crystal Mark from the Plain English campaign for our jargon-free policies. We’ve also won a number of coveted industry accolades, including the Insurance Choice Award for Best Home & Car Insurance Provider, the only awards decided by customer votes.

Very quick and easy to search for house insurance. Site is easily navigated round. The prices were very reasonable and documents ready to print in minutes.

Excellent service
Found the company on a well known comparison site. Excellent information, good response from the telephone sales person, with no hard sell. Policy does what it says on the tin and I was covered straight away.

Simply the best
The product suits my needs and my wallet. What more can I say. If you want a great policy that does what it says in the small print then this is the one for you. Everything you need is there. Nothing not to like, a policy for anyone and everyone. Customer service 2nd to none and value for money. Will be using again.

Great service
This is the first time I have EVER stayed with same insurance company 2 years consecutively. This year the price was competitive despite having a claim on my policy the previous year....which was handled quickly and smoothly. The agents always offer a great service too! Highly recommended.

Easy peasy
What I like the most is how simple and easy to understand the insurance I am buying is. You get to choose what level of cover you wish to have which then updates the price you will pay. You can see in detail what is covered.
