Why is a Defaqto 5 Star Rating important?

Buying insurance can be a bit of a minefield - whilst it's easy to compare products on price alone, it's not always easy to understand what you’re getting for your money until its too late.

Defaqto Star Ratings help you to make informed decisions about getting the cover to suit your needs. A Defaqto 5 Star Rating gives you the reassurance that you’re buying quality cover that will deliver when you need it most.

Please note the specific product names that the Ratings refer to, for example, van insurance, single trip insurance or car insurance.

The Defaqto 5 Star Rating is based on an assessment of the overall product, including the optional components (add ons). Where not all of the options are taken, this might affect the rating of the product.
