Insurance Products and Services

There are a multitude of insurance products out there, some we are required to have (such as car insurance if you are a car owner, or buildings insurance if you have a mortgage) and others are there to help protect us if we suffer emergencies. From critical illness insurance, travel insurance, house insurance and personal possessions insurance, we discuss them all.

Please note that we do not offer financial advice, please consult an Independant Financial Advisor (IFA) for all your insurance needs.

Our secret shopper also looks at a number of insurance products and tries to compare their effectiveness and the value for money the insurance premiums offer.
