About Cuvva

At Cuvva we’re building insurance the way it should be.

No more lengthy forms. No more waiting on hold. No more ‘computer says no’ attitude.

We’ve gone back to basics to build products that actually work for the customer.

We are super focused on creating a friendly, simple and hassle-free customer experience.

Don’t just take our word for it - check out our website (cuvva.com (workable.com/nr?l=https://www.cuvva.com/support) ), click on the speech bubble in the bottom right hand corner and chat to one of the team.
