The brand seems a bit neglected these days with the most recent posts on its Facebook site dating from 2016. 

The most recent blog post on the Screentrade website is also from 2016. Similarly, the Screentrade Twitter account last tweeted in 2016.

And the “Our Story” part of the Screentrade website only takes you up to 2014, adding to the impression that it’s all been rather forgotten about.

What is Screentrade car insurance best for?

As there are hardly any reviews for Screentrade it is hard to assess who the company would suit best for car insurance.

Screentrade doesn’t seem to target any particular type of customer so it may be worth trying the company for a quote if you are after standard car insurance. 

If you are looking for more specialist car insurance, a company that advertises cover for young drivers or those with modified cars, for example, might be more what you are looking for. 

And bear in mind that nothing seems to have happened with the Screentrade brand for the past few years so you may be better off trying Screentrade’s parent company, Devitt.
