Insurance products

Our insurance service allows you to search for and compare various types of insurance products from different insurance providers. You will need to answer a number of questions on this Website in order to compare or obtain a quote for any insurance product. These questions are designed to ensure that we and all relevant insurance providers have all the information necessary to provide you with appropriate and timely information relating to the products in which you are interested. The level of cover and the amount you will pay will be determined by the answers you provide to these questions. It is therefore very important that you answer all of the questions truthfully, completely and accurately and that you disclose all relevant facts. Failure to do so could invalidate the insurance product you purchase meaning you have no insurance cover. If your insurance product is invalid, claims may not be paid and you could be responsible for any third party costs if any event occurs where you would otherwise have been covered by the insurance product.

Except in connection with travel insurance products, in order to apply for an insurance product, you must contact the relevant insurance provider. We will give you a direct link to their website and/or a dedicated telephone number along with any identification needed to access your details.

Before you apply for any insurance product, it is very important that you check all of the information held by the insurance provider about you to ensure it is true, correct, complete and accurate, that it is not misleading and that you have disclosed all relevant facts. It is your responsibility to identify and correct any mistakes or errors in the information held by the insurance provider about you before you apply for any product. Failure to correct any mistakes or errors in the information held by the insurance provider about you or a failure to disclose all relevant facts could invalidate your chosen insurance product. The information you provide may be used to carry out certain credit checks through licensed credit-referencing agencies. This is used as part of the underwriting process for some of the insurance providers and a record of this search will be made although this will not adversely affect your credit profile. Some insurance providers may pass loyalty scheme data to their insurance underwriters in order to assess and rate your cover and determine your premiums. If you are in any doubt as to whether any information is relevant or required to be disclosed or that something may be incorrect you should disclose it to your proposed insurance provider before you apply for the insurance product. If you do not provide all such information or if you fail to tell your proposed insurance provider about any circumstances likely to influence their assessment of the risks involved, your proposed insurance provider may be able to treat your insurance policy as invalid.

Most insurance providers make certain assumptions about you. These will be different to any assumptions made by us about you. It is your responsibility to check the assumptions made by insurance providers as they form part of your contract with your selected insurance provider. If any assumption made by an insurance provider is incorrect, you must inform the insurance provider before you apply for any insurance product. Failure to do so could invalidate the insurance product.

In providing our home insurance service, we have made the following assumptions and we have answered some questions on your behalf using those assumptions: You or anyone currently living at the property:

Do not have any unspent criminal convictions or prosecutions pending. Have not been declared bankrupt. Have never had insurance cancelled, refused or special terms applied by your insurer.

If these assumptions are incorrect it is your responsibility to change the answers and provide the correct information when making an application for the product to the home insurance provider.

It is very important and your responsibility to check all the information about you is true, correct, complete and accurate as incorrect information could invalidate your policy or lead to a claim being declined.It is very important before you apply for any insurance product that you carefully read the terms and conditions of the product, the insurance provider's terms and conditions and any other documentation that applies to the insurance product. You must familiarise yourself with all the details of the insurance product, for example, the restrictions, exclusions, conditions and obligations which apply to the insurance product. It is your responsibility to ensure that the insurance product matches your requirements and that you agree to the terms and conditions of the insurance product before you apply for it. We accept no responsibility or liability whatsoever for any loss or damage you may suffer or incur in the event that any insurance product you apply for does not meet your requirements or is not suitable for you.
