We know insurance, and we get to know you
Your circumstances and your requirements can have an effect on the prices you pay for insurance products. By talking with you — in one of our high street branches or over the phone — we can understand the specifics of your insurance needs and match them with the insurer that’s best placed to provide that cover, at the right price. Personal, tailored, great value cover.
Taking the hassle out of insurance
You don’t need to lift a finger. With a panel of top insurers, our experienced team finds the cover that’s truly tailored to your personal requirements. Leave the legwork to us. Simple, convenient and efficient.
The personal approach
Buying insurance has become an impersonal experience. Call centre handlers are on a schedule, so can’t build up a relationship with you. Comparison websites expect you to do all the work and you can’t always be completely sure that the cover meets your specific needs.
If you have a home, vehicle or other item that is out of the ordinary it can be very hard to be sure you’ve bought the right product for your requirements.
A-Plan is different. we’ve been providing a personalised service to over 600,000 clients since the 1960s. We have over 100 high street branches, no telephone scripts or automated call management systems, no complicated online forms to fill in and definitely no jargon filled pages of website to trawl through.
We are proud that the majority of our clients renew with us year after year and so many new clients come to us from the recommendation of our existing ones.

Modern Slavery Act Transparency Statement
This statement is made pursuant to S54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and sets out the steps the Company has taken during the financial year 1st March 2020 to 28th February 2021 to ensure that slavery and human trafficking is not taking place in our supply chains or in any part of our business.
We have reported to HM Government the data required by them for firms employing more than 250 people
The pay gap the data demonstrates is caused by the fact that there are more males than females in management and senior leadership positions (that attract higher pay) across the business; a fact and challenge seen across nearly all financial service firms and business as a whole. The pay gap is not caused by unequal pay for men and women in the same roles and with similar experience.
The gender pay gap is a situation that we, and society as a whole, are anxious to address as for us it is critical to the ongoing success and future of our business.
Based on the average hourly rates of pay at 5th April 2019, the mean gender pay gap was 18% (2018: 23%), and the median (mid point) pay gap was 9% (2018: 12%).
The data at 5th April 2019 for bonuses shows that the mean bonus gap was 10% (2018: 45%), and the median bonus gap was 13% (2018: 61%). 18% (2018: 13%) of males receive a bonus, and 2% (2018: 9%) of females.
Across the pay quartiles, in the lowest quartile (quartile 1), 52% (2018: 54%) are female and 48% (2018: 46%) are male. In the second quartile, 51% (2018: 52%) are male and 49% (2018: 48%) are female, in the third quartile, 57% (2018: 56%) are male and 43% (2018 :44%) are female, and in the top quartile, 71% (2018: 76%) are male and 29% (2018: 24%) are female.
We are committed to developing the best talent across the company, as well as being inclusive for all employees, and have implemented a number of initiatives to encourage a better gender balance within the business.
We really value feedback from our clients. We invite our clients to leave us with reviews so that we can make sure we deliver on the high standards we set for ourselves. This also ensures that our clients are satisfied with the service we provide.
We gather feedback through reviews and surveys, and you can view various A-Plan reviews on our website here: A-Plan Reviews

Mr Davies, 15.06.2021
Quite simply, one of the most professional and efficient companies I have ever dealt with. I have been a client of theirs for in excess of 12 years, and every interaction has been the best it could be. I consider them 'bench standard'.

Friendly helpful staff. Easy transactions. Competitive prices.

I continue to give APLAN my support as a local business by again renewing this years Home Insurance. For a rare occasion, this time it involved a claim. This was handled swiftly, professionally and in the usual APLAN way, with friendliness and some sage advice. Thank you APLAN
