Direct Line Travel Insurance Review

Back in 1985 Direct Line became the first UK insurance company to use the phone as its main channel of communication.

Out went the middlemen, the fat commissions, the forms and the jargon.

From a single product - motor insurance - it now offers a range of services and products, from loans to home insurance, mortgages to pensions, to over 5 million customers.

Cheeky Logo

Today it's one of the top players in the insurance business, instantly recognisable by its friendly logo - the cheeky red telephone on wheels.

You could save up to 50% on travel agents' premiums and policies can be tailored to your individual needs.
