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.

I purchased my house and contents…
I purchased my house and contents insurance at a reasonable premium and everything worked promptly.I renewed over the phone (after questioning the premium rise), and obtained a discount. I never accept an automatic premium rise without contacting the company directly, and I feel that you were trying to use the same trick that other insurers use at renewal time. This is unethical.

Simply the best
Used a comparison site for my home insurance and Policy expert was cheapest on the list. Once transferred to their site I was informed that home emergency cover was at no extra cost. So yes I'm well happy and would highly recommend. The process was fairly simple and fairly quick and I didn't even have to leave my tea go cold.

Good service
Switched my home insurance and it couldn't have been easier. A really simple process and by far the cheapest price reflecting my level of cover required. You can pick and choose bits you need and bits you don't and that's reflected in your price.

Fantastic company!
It's a no brainer really, if you want excellent home and contents insurance at a good price, which doesn't rise every year like most, then policy expert is for you! The renewal process is quick and easy and customer service is very good. What are you waiting for!

Home buildings and contents insurance at a great price.Wanted to call to check / discuss a few things on the policy. Fast answering of the call - no horribly long queuing, such a pleasant lass dealt with all of my enquiries with efficient courtesy. Very satisfied with the policy details and price - I purchased immediately.
