Age UK is a charity which provides a number of support services to help the elderly. It also offers a range of financial products.
Age UK's financial products include insurance covers which are underwritten by the Belgian insurer Ageas. Because of Age UK’s focus on helping older people, you have to be over 50 to apply for them.
Age UK has high customer happiness and trust scores and a good record on transparency in most product areas.
That means that Age UK is usually found towards the top of our tables. It holds Gold Fairer Finance Ribbons for its home and car insurance, as well as a Bronze Fairer Finance Ribbon for its travel insurance.
If you’re over 50 and shopping around for insurance products, Age UK is definitely worth considering. But do shop around, consider your needs, and ensure that they can also quote you an affordable price. Although they are a charity, that doesn’t mean they’ll always offer the cheapest or most suitable insurance for you.
