Churchill insurance offers a range of competitive products to customers living in the UK. Launched in 1989, it was one of the first direct motor insurers to begin operating in the country, and has now become one of the best-known brands in the market.
Churchill started its journey offering only car insurance, but over the course of its life it has broadened its product range within the insurance market and now offers car insurance, home insurance, travel insurance, pet insurance, breakdown cover, van insurance, motorcycle insurance and income protection.
Products are sold by telephone or online; the company has no branch network so savings made by lower overheads are passed on to customers allowing Churchill to offer very competitive rates.
In 2002 Churchill acquired Prudential's Insurance arm, and the following year The Royal Bank of Scotland Group purchased Churchill Insurance from Credit Suisse Group for £1.1 billion.
Churchill Insurance is the underwriter for many other popular insurance brands including Lloyds TSB, Nationwide and Prudential.
Churchill is now part of the Royal Bank of Scotland group, operating under the RBS Insurance division.
