We started from scratch in the UK in April 1985 with a single product – car insurance, and just one way for our customers to buy – over the telephone.
It was a revolutionary time as out went the middlemen, the fat commissions, the forms and the jargon. In came speed, simplicity and a common-sense of human touch.
Today we have over ten million customers and a broad range of products and services. We do business over the phone and on the Internet aiming to offer a quick and straight forward customer experience.
- When Direct Line first opened it’s doors in 1985 there were 63 employees. There are now more than 10,000 employees.
- Direct Line started selling car insurance from a single call centre in Croydon. Today, you can buy home, pet, travel, life, breakdown, landlord and business cover direct from us – online, or over the phone.
Comprehensive Auto Insurance
This covers you if your car is accidentally damaged, stolen or damaged by fire. You’re also covered for claims made against you by other people for damage to their property or bodily injury.
