What We're Building

We provide consumers better and up to 80% cheaper insurance.

We do so by taking insurance back to its 17th century roots, when incentives were aligned across the value chain and customers got money back when there were no claims.

Our ambitions are global and across consumers lines and we started by addressing the £1bn UK cell phone insurance market.

Better
- easy to buy
- reliable, transparent cover
- painless swift claim process with next working day phone delivery - vs 4-18 days by competition

Cheaper
- start off with up to 40% cheaper than mobile networks' insurance
- connect to your friends and when none of you claim, you get up to 80% money back

Add testimonials, product launches, and photos that highlight your company
