Frequently Asked Questions

Who will administer my policies?

At H&H Insurance Brokers we are very proud of our personal service.

In addition to this, we offer visits from our account executives who will go through your policy in depth to ensure you have sufficient cover at the best cost.

Can I pay my premiums by direct debit?

H&H Insurance Brokers have negotiated very competitive rates with a leading credit provider allowing you to pay monthly over 10 months.  We can do 3 or 6 months to suit you.

Is there a charge when paying by direct debit?

Premium Credit Limited will make a charge for arranging instalment facilities so you can pay by Direct Debit. The amount of the charge will depend on total premiums and chosen payment period but we will confirm this to you when arranging your insurance.

Why choose H&H Insurance Brokers as your insurance broker?

We act as an intermediary between clients and insurance companies. Clients may be either individuals or commercial businesses and organisations. We use our in-depth knowledge of risks and the insurance market to find and arrange suitable insurance policies. Unlike tied agents, we are independent and offer products from more than one insurer, to ensure that you get the best deal.  Insurance policies range from motor insurance, required by law to drive a vehicle in the UK, to public, employers’ or product liability insurance, which pays compensation on the basis of the assessment of legal liability for damage, injury or harm.
