Media and brand

Founded by NUS in 1965, we have a lifetime’s experience working with the education community and putting students at the heart of everything we do. We’ve used this expertise to build flexible policies and insurance schemes for students, graduates and education establishments that’ll help make sure they’re protected at every step. Not only that, but we’re also proud partners of the National Association of Schoolmasters and Union of Women Teachers (NASUWT) and the University and College Union (UCU).

In 1976 it was felt that a stronger financial base was needed to expand our market opportunities. Gouda Insurance Company of the Netherlands took an 86% share, with NUS retaining 14%.

In 2006, Endsleigh was acquired by Zurich, merging with Zurich’s Personal Lines business in 2014.

In March 2018, Endsleigh was acquired by A-Plan Holdings.

What we do

Our aim is to provide you with the specialist insurance you need to thrive through all life’s challenges. Partnered with NUS since 1965, we continue to work closely with them to make sure our products are built around the evolving needs and concerns of the student and education community. 

 It could be why we’ve been voted the UK’s ‘Best Student Insurance Provider’ at the Insurance Choice Awards 4 years in a row! (2016-2020)

 Whether you’re protecting your car, home, gadgets or business, we’ll use our long-standing partnerships with the UK’s leading insurers to find the cover that’s right for you, with flexible policy options to help you stay protected against the unexpected.
