Co-op Insurance

Co-op Insurance offers a range of home, motor and pet insurance products and likes to be at the forefront of the Insurance industry. For example, in 2006 Co-op Insurance became the UK's first insurer to launch an Eco-Motor Insurance policy, offering customer discounts on ‘greener’ cars and the opportunity to offset the environmental impact of their driving. In 2011, we became the first major insurer to introduce a telematics product to help lower the cost of insurance for young drivers.
