Who is Aviva?

Aviva can trace its heritage back to the late 17th century, over 300 years ago. On 12 November 1696, the Hand in Hand Fire and Life Insurance Society was founded at Tom's Coffee House in St Martin’s Lane, London.

Established as a mutual Society, the company was once the world's oldest existing fire insurance office. Fast-forward to 1905, and the Hand in Hand Fire and Life Insurance Society was bought by Commercial Union.

Aviva was created by a merger of two British insurance firms, Norwich Union and CGU plc as CGNU in 2000. The name Aviva was adopted later in July 2002.

Aviva car insurance is arranged by Aviva UK Digital Limited and underwritten and administered by Aviva Insurance Limited. These companies are part of the Aviva group. Aviva are a well known general insurer in the UK and a leading life and pensions provider.

In 2020, Aviva paid £30.6 billion in claims and benefits to their customers and in 2021, Aviva announced its plan to become a Net Zero carbon emissions company by 2040.
