This seems a cut above the usual hard sell on insurance, as it focusses more on what your needs might be and how you could cover them, so you can decide if you wish to pursue a quote or not. quite informative and easy to navigate. I’d use this site again.

Its a bit busy,I don’t fit into the 3 criteria and asked to fill in a different criteria but difficult to find it.

I thought it was a really good site – easy to use, good plain English, easy to understand explanations. I liked the Principles at the bottom of the page, and the option to speak to someone rather than just online communication.

Jack baker says:

Nice layout, simple + practical buttons and boxes. Slightly dull colour scheme.

Catherine Harper says:

The front page is clear and easy to navigate around. I like the fact that you include a simple and straightforward description of each type of insurance and who may benefit from it.

However, I do feel like there is too much content on the front page and you have to scroll a long way to get to the bottom. I think that I would therefore put the calculators on a separate page to that of the descriptions of each type of insurance.

I thought the website was easy on they eye and had a tool for everything you need to know. Very Helpful

June 15, 2014 at 11:17 pm

I really like the tool and it was definitely simple and easy to use, very quick too with so few questions. However even with the really cute graphics, I feel the page is almost too white. I would prefer if the cross-hatch grey background continued all the way down instead of fading out into simple white. This may just be personal preference however.

Easy to use and I like that it’s not just trying to get you to buy insurance!

Looks pretty easy to use and gives quick results, although I felt I did have to read a lot of info beforehand to know what it was I was looking at. Maybe make the initial write up a bit more compact

Very quick and easy to fill out to give a few basic ideas of how to protect your family. Having the risk percentages is extremely useful in deciding which things you might decide to leave and which you should pay attention to.

June 19, 2014 at 7:49 pm

Jane Middleton says:

Interesting tool. I was surprised that the risk of of being unable to work for 2 or more months actually decreases with age – one would have thought that you are more like to be ill with a long-term illness as you get older.

Hannah Smith says:

Useful tool, easy to use, would recommend!

Income protection sounds a wise idea

June 19, 2014 at 10:05 pm

I don’t think the initial questions would have produced very individual results

June 19, 2014 at 10:47 pm

Carrie Talbot-Ashby says:

Practical, basic, easy to use, after having a quick gander it all seems good to me. Been looking at a way to protect my income, so might have to delve further, thanks! x

This is useful. I had a play around and its simple to use, its abit hard to find some sections but i think more time playing and i would get the hang of it. Its well laid out and think it will be a valuable source of information to those who need it
