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 700,000 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.

Quick, simple purchase.
Fast and easy purchase of home insurance. Considerably cheaper than the renewal quote offered from previous insurer and cheapest for our requirements on comparison sites. 5 stars so far but only the start of the policy.

Supportive, speedy and thorough
We realised our house had subsidence just as we were about to start a single story house extension. Pretty nerve racking time for us, particularly as we didn’t want to delay our build waiting for the insurers to decide. Policy expert (through trinity claims) have been excellent, supportive, thorough, speedy and fair. They initially sent out a structural surveyor to assess our house damage who disagreed with our own structural engineers and builders assessment. I thought this meant the insurance wouldn’t pay out. On the contrary the subsidence team supported us through the process of getting the correct documentation and evidence and sided with our own structural engineers assessment since his report was accurate, thorough and qualifications appropriate. Our structural engineers time and report was included in our cash settlement so it is worth submitting a second opinion if the initial assessment from their assessor goes against your builder/engineers opinion. The whole process from that moment on has been stress free and easy. In particular Greg and Jonathan have been amazingly supportive and fair. Our claim was complicated by the fact we were doing a build so couldn’t submit like for like replacement receipts (for instance the UPVC French doors damage by the ground movement are being replaced by expensive aluminium sliders so we needed to submit quotes for what would have been replaced were we not doing a build). They helped us make sure a percentage of our room plastering, restoration etc was included in the claim so it was totally fair to both us and them. Would highly recommend, despite the bad review on here! We ended up with 10k which is exactly what we submitted for, our builders said were we not doing a build at the same time as the subsidence repairs this cost would have been much higher for the insurers so both parties were pleased.

Easy renewal of home and contents insurance
Received my annual renewal quote. Checked around and the quote remained competitive. Had a couple of minor changes to make so rang Policy Expert. Got through quickly and the advisor was very helpful at making the changes and talking me through them. Despite the changes, the policy price actually reduced (by 50p!). The whole transaction went smoothly and I was happy with both the service received and the price paid.

Pleasant staff member
The staff member was helpful and answered any questions very professionally but in a pleasant way. She was efficient and willing to wait and call me back while I cancelled with my current insurer. The cost of insurance with Policy Expert was very competitive and I was happy to sign up with them.
