Churchill Car Insurance @ www.churchill.com

Churchill Car InsuranceChurchill was established back in 1989 by Martin Long who alongside Peter Wood had also created Direct Line as a division of The Royal Bank of Scotland. Martin Long had later moved on to form this company that RBS would later acquire for £1.1 billion. Following the financial crisis the bank was of course ordered to sell the insurance division that was done so after being rebranded as the Direct Line Group. As well as the core brand and this one in focus at www.churchill.com, DLG also operates as Privilege, whilst there is also Green Flag for roadside assistance. There is no doubting the importance of this household brand, famed for its nodding dog mascot.

Their Facebook page has over 54,000 fans that is the largest following of any DLG brand (although Direct’s overall following is larger when you combine their Italian and UK page counts). All such companies within the Group are of course underwritten by U K Insurance Ltd and so the policy features are similar across the range. We again see 5 star Defaqto status for this cover that has also been attained for DriveSure that is their telematics offering. The main policy features include a 24 hour emergency helpline plus legal advice helpline, a courtesy car, repairs guaranteed for 5 years, write off replacement and the uninsured driver promise. A multi-car discount is also available when insuring multiple cars.

A Churchill car insurance login is equipped to www.churchill.com. The telematics policy is managed externally at www.mydrivesure.com. Their customer support line is 0345 603 3551. This is live during the week between 8am/6pm, Saturday is 9am/5pm and Sunday is 10am/5pm. As far as policy value goes, they do tend to rank highly in comparison searches. It is interesting to see these quotes pop up, since DLG’s main company excludes themselves from such sites. Churchill’s car insurance has become the main priority, but they do target a wider range of niches. Home cover has been a particular area of expertise. It was this market that for instance attracted RBS to acquire them in the first place.
