A short description of Hastings Direct


Hastings Direct is a United Kingdom Insurance broker based in Bexhill-on-Sea, who claim to offer ‘refreshingly straightforward insurance’. They cover car, van, bike and home products and services. This public limited company saw a turnover of £481 million in 2015, with an operating income of £126.1 million GDP in 2015 and a net income of £2.3 GDP million.

Founded in 1997, Hastings Direct started as a UK broker providing private car insurance policies and related products. They have since extended their range of insurance products to include home, bike and van insurance and a wide range of additional services.

In February 2009, Hastings Insurance Services Limited was purchased from Insurance Australia Group (IAG). In early January 2014, Goldman Sachs invested equity into Hasting Direct, ensuring long-term security for its customers, as the company continued to grow in an increasingly competitive insurance market. By November 2015, and with over two million customers, Hastings Direct had established themselves as a household insurance product, thanks partly to the TV advertising campaign featuring the cartoon seagull ‘Stephen’ and the catchy “0800 00 1066” slogan.

They claim to be one of the UK's leading insurance providers, with a proud commitment to quality service with their refreshingly straightforward products and services.

The company claims to be a multi-award winning business, with multiple pages on their website dedicated to their industry awards, and a growing portfolio of affiliated brands. They claim to be one of Europe's fastest growing insurance groups.

It's unique selling point is the transparent choice consumers have between two distinct insurance packages: Hastings Direct and Hastings Premier. Premier includes Motor legal cover and four tiers of breakdown cover, whereas the standard Hastings Direct cover includes windscreen cover and child seat cover along with several other extras.

Hastings Insurance Services Limited, trading as Hastings Direct, is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (register number 311492) . The registered office is Conquest House, Collington Avenue, Bexhill-on-Sea, East Sussex, TN39 3LW.
