Churchill car insurance

Why choose Churchill car insurance?

Churchill is a household name that offers comprehensive car insurance and third-party fire and theft insurance.

You can also get telematics insurance and multi-car cover.

Although it’s a trusted name, that doesn’t mean it has the right policy for you.

The only way to make sure you’re getting the right cover is to compare a range of insurers and see what’s on offer.

Churchill’s car insurance add-ons

As well as the usual things you’d expect from your car insurance - cover for fire damage and theft, as two examples - Churchill also has a few optional extras that you can add on to enhance your policy.

It’s teamed up with Green Flag to provide breakdown cover and has a 24-hour emergency helpline, so you can call them whenever you need them.

Other optional extras are:

  • Legal assistance
  • Guaranteed hire car plus
  • No claims discount protection

These add-ons will increase the price of your premiums, so only get them if you think you’ll need them.

If you take out fully comprehensive insurance, Churchill offers vandalism and uninsured driver promises for free. That means you won’t lose your no claims discount if your car is vandalised or hit by an uninsured driver.

You’ll also have basic cover for EU driving included, though this can be upgraded to full cover for a fee.

About Churchill

Churchill was founded in 1989 and was one of Britain’s first car insurance companies. It quickly expanded to offer a range of other insurance products.

Its famous bulldog mascot was first used in 1996 and has been nodding away on our screens ever since.

Its mission statement is to provide reliable car insurance and to be there when you need them – after all, a dog is a human’s best friend.

A famous mascot

Churchill’s four-legged frontman has been a nodding dog toy, a giant hot air balloon and has appeared in 22 pantomimes in the UK

Get cheaper Churchill insurance

Just like with any insurer, building up your no claims discount, increasing your voluntary excess and buying a car with a smaller engine will help reduce your premiums.

It’s also worth keeping an eye on add-ons. If you don’t want legal assistance, don’t buy it.

Telematics policies can be a cheaper way to get covered too, as Churchill will base your premiums on how well you drive.

If you’ve got a classic car, a club membership might get you a bit of a discount too.

Keep in mind that the cheapest car insurance isn’t necessarily the most suitable one, so compare all your options to see what’s best for you.
