New motor policy for international students launched by Endsleigh and Clements Worldwide

Endsleigh, which has been insuring students, graduates and young professionals since 1965, has launched a new motor policy, specifically tailored for international students in the UK. This new international motor policy will be underwritten by Zurich and was created in partnership with Clements Worldwide, which specialises in international insurance. The policy will include all the benefits associated with current student motor policies taken out through Endsleigh.

There are currently over 300,000 international students enrolled in UK universities[1] and with estimates suggesting that the UK will welcome a further 126,000 over the next decade[2], Endsleigh and Clements Worldwide have created this policy to ensure that the increasing needs of international students are being recognised by insurers in the UK. This policy will allow them a reliable and safe way to insure their cars whilst in the UK, in the case of damage, theft or loss of their vehicle.

Sarah Rowan, Motor Account Manager at Endsleigh said:
“With nearly 50 years of experience in the student market, at Endsleigh we understand the constantly evolving needs of students. So with more and more international students choosing to study in the UK, we’ve developed this policy to offer them a safe and easy way to take out coverage for their car. Working with Clements has allowed us to bring together our expertise of the student market and their understanding of the international one and we look forward to developing this partnership in the future.”

Simon Townsend, Managing Director Europe, Clements Worldwide said:
“Clements has provided industry-leading international motor, personal property, term life and other insurance coverage’s to international expatriates and organisations for over 65 years. Through our partnership with Endsleigh, we are proud to introduce motor insurance specifically for the international student community. We trust international students will recognize the superior benefits that Clements and Endsleigh together provide, and that they will take advantage of our affordable and comprehensive insurance while they are studying in the UK.”

This new motor policy will include a wide range of benefits for international students, which are already associated with general Endsleigh student motor cover, including cover in the event of theft, damage or loss of their vehicle, RAC breakdown cover and European no claims bonus will also be accepted.
