As a UK based insurance company, Hastings Direct is a Hastings Insurance Services Limited division that provides insurance over the internet and by telephone. The company was founded in 1997 and originally provided only private car insurance. Since that time many other types of cover have been added with the inclusion of such products as van, bike and home insurance. They also provide other related insurance products that can be found on their company website.
In 2009 Hastings Insurance Services Limited was purchased by an Australian enterprise, Insurance Australia Group but ownership doesn’t change their commitment to serving the insurance needs of UK drivers.
As a broker, an intermediary, Hastings Direct is able to offer quotes from a wide array of insurers and the Hastings Direct policy has earned a Defaqto 5 Star rating. They assure drivers that their level of quality and care is carried over into all their insurance products as this is what earned them the coveted award.
Hastings Direct allows you to tailor your policy with a range of optional cover. A No Claims discount is available and drivers can choose to add legal protection, breakdown cover and personal accident cover. Additionally, optional cover can be purchased for Key Cover and Substitute Vehicle Cover.
Having a Defaqto 5 Star rating helps to reassure customers that they will get the service they deserve.
