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 425,000 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.
