Swiftcover was founded in 2005 by senior executives from within the insurance industry. It was a unique proposition offering good value car insurance online only. Swiftcover was also the first UK insurance company to offer its customers the convenience of printing their own car insurance certificate.
Unlike most of its competitors who rely on both the telephone and the internet to sell car insurance, Swiftcover’s sole source of business is the internet and as a result we think you get the best online customer experience in the market. As a result of being an online only company, you can do everything you need online using our innovative Swift Space customer area.
If you need to make a claim on your Swiftcover policy then you have a choice of either registering the claim using our fast and efficient online claims registration service or calling one of our dedicated claims professionals, the choice is yours.
In 2007, Swiftcover became the fastest growing Car insurance provider in the UK selling over half a million policies in two years.
Swiftcover was so successful that it was purchased in 2007 by the Axa group and now forms a highly successful but still very independent part of the Global Axa Group.
Swiftcover started out with just a few staff but now employs well over 250 people across two UK locations in Surrey and Teesside.
In short, Swiftcover is a highly successful and trusted insurer within the UK insurance market which offers many useful benefits over its traditional rivals. As a customer you get the benefits of insuring with a young dynamic online company with all the benefits of insuring with the worlds largest insurance organisation.
