Age UK formed in 2009 after the merger of Age Concern and Help the Aged. It's now the largest charity for older people in the UK.
Pretty soon after this merger, Age UK started its commercial arm - Age UK Enterprises. It's through this arm that Age UK branded products started appearing on the market.
It now offers equipment, insurance and financial services tailored for the more mature audience. You used to be able to get energy through Age UK too, but a bit of a hoo-hah in 2016 ended that.
Anyway, we're here to talk about Age UK car insurance. Ageas underwrites Age UK's insurance policies, including car insurance.
