The company was launched in 2000 and was set up with one main aim which was to provide convenient high value cover at the lowest prices possible. The founders of the company saw a unique gap in the market for travel insurance.
As more and more people were able to book holidays themselves, it made sense that they should also be able to purchase their own travel insurance. This was usually provided by travel agents which caused a monopoly in the market and customers were often held to ransom over large premiums and inadequate protection. The traditional insurance industry was not geared up for offer travel insurance and also there was no effective provision available online.
Insureandgo stepped in to provide a simple, quick and easy way to buy lost cost insurance. Customers only have to enter three details - the trip length, the area of destination and the ages of the travellers – to get a range of quotes.
