Life insurance companies

We compare over 10 of the best life insurance companies in the UK

We help make finding the best life insurance for you and your loved ones easy. By comparing a selection of companies all in one place, we can help you find life insurance at a price to suit your budget

Whether you're looking to cover your mortgage, set up a joint policy or leave a nest egg for loved ones, it's easy to get started.

How to get a quote

Getting a quote takes just 3 minutes. There are a few things you'll need to have at hand to help speed up the process:

  • Your name
  • Your age
  • A brief outline of your medical history
  • Details of any pre-existing medical conditions
  • All of the above for anyone else you'd like to include on the policy

We might also ask you about your family medical history. This is so insurers can see whether you run the risk of developing a condition during your cover period. If heart disease runs in your family, for example, you may be more likely to suffer with it yourself.

Once we have your details, we’ll also ask you:

  • How much life insurance cover you want
  • How long you want to be covered for

We’ll then do the rest to find you our best deal.

Further down the line, you may be asked to have a medical. This is so insurers can see how healthy you are before offering you a quote. Not all policies will ask you to have this, but it’s worth keeping in mind.
