New kid on the block Freedom Brokers arrived on the insurance scene in 2017. Its USP is “doing things differently”. There’s an emphasis on a UK-based call centre, plenty of policy upgrade space and strong claims support.
Trustpilot: 4.5/5 stars
There’s a far more impressive and reliable rating based on more than 1,500 reviews from Trustpilot with a 4.5% score overall. The company’s black box product is well liked and the online underwriting process appears quick and deft.
Insurance panel partners include big names like Covea and Ageas. Freedom Brokers also offer specialist protection cover for motoring offence legal costs. It’s simple to manage your policy online thanks to a clear and straightforward website.
The company also offers home and pet insurance. Freedom Brokers is led by female entrepreneur Sam White and much of her board is female.
Freedom Brokers says all policies are tailor-made. Breakdown cover isn’t included as standard though this is the same for many policies and may be reflected in a more competitive quote – but always shop around.
Their value for money emphasis is supported by telematics or ‘black box’ interest as well as Covid-19 lockdown measures (late 2020). In other words, there’s more stress on driver use to keep your annual quote as reasonable as possible.
Freedom Brokers also offers Gap Insurance cover, covering the difference between the price of a new vehicle and the total loss claim, if your car’s written off.
