The online quote and buy process...

1

Initial questions

We first ask you just a few questions that will determine which products you require and what the premium will be.
We try to keep it short as we know that answering endless questions just to get a quote is not a good use of your time.

2

Your quote

When you submit you initial answers, we calculate the premium and display it to you. At this point you may be able to add additional products if they are available to you. You can then save the quote and come back to it any time within 30 days or continue to purchase the policy.

3

Exemptions

We always want to get a quote for you as quickly as possible. There are, however, a few exemptions that would mean it is not possible to complete the process online. So before you can continue your purchase, you must read and agree to the exemptions.

4

Additional questions

We now need to ask you additional questions that weren’t necessary to provide a quote, but which need to be answered to complete the process.

5

Payment

Now that we have all the details for the policy, we need to take your payment details. The available payment options will be displayed and you can enter your details via a secure online connection. The policy isn’t active until it is paid for.

6

Complete

After accepting your payment details, the quote and buy process is complete. You will see a completion page and will receive your policy documents and other information documents via email.
