Why compare with us

You’ll be amazed at the money you could save on life insurance through comparethemarket.com!


Life insurance cover can help with the repayment of debts such as mortgage repayments and can also assist dependants or spouses financially in the circumstance of the policy holder’s death. Life insurance is designed to pay out a lump sum of money in the event of the death of the life insured during the term of the policy; giving peace of mind in knowing loved ones will not be left with the financial burden of funeral costs or any other unsettled expenses.
Traditionally applied for by people with loans, a mortgage or any financial dependants, life insurance policies have a fixed length term, with options on how long they run to be personalised to your individual circumstances.


Life insurance cover falls into two main categories; Level Term and Decreasing Cover policies. Level Term is often chosen by people who would like to leave a lump sum of money to their loved ones in the event of their death during their policy or for individuals who would like to cover an interest only mortgage. Decreasing cover policies however, are traditionally taken out by individuals who have a repayment plan, e.g. a repayment mortgage, which decreases year on year.
