How can we help?

Our insurance

From public liability insurance for injury and property damage, to employers’ liability cover for your staff and freelancers, we offer the core covers you need, plus specific options for a range of risks, such as professional indemnity, or protection for your equipment.

Your business

Our cover options are as varied as the businesses on your local high street. That’s what makes life interesting. We insure tradesmen, like builders and plumbers, but also shops, restaurants, niche businesses and professionals, pubs and many more.

Just for landlords

Landlords need insurance as much as the next business, if not more. Whether it’s your first buy-to-let or a commercial property, tailor our landlord insurance options to get the protection you need. It’s flexible cover, with options for things like buildings, contents and loss of rent.

Meet our customers

From clever cupcakes to burlesque beauties

The very best of Simply Business comes from our customers.

Whether that’s a cupcake shop in Sussex or a plumber up in Leicester, they’re the people to learn from if you’re thinking of starting up, changing track or working out your business insurance. We asked our customers to tell their stories, and just what ‘tailored insurance’ means to them.

Simply Vent

We get it…

You’d rather go on a two-week winter cruise with your in-laws, in a small dinghy, than talk about insurance.

With 95% of our customers rating us good or excellent, we seem to be hitting some of the right notes. But we appreciate insurance can be a bit of a headache. So if you do have a real aversion, take a look at the Vent Box. What would you rather do, than talk insurance?

Tell us now, and we’ll tell the world.
