Hastings Essentials Car Insurance

Hastings Essentials is a trading name of Hastings Insurance Services, which is part of the Hastings Group. The group is based in the seaside town of Bexhill-on-Sea, in East Sussex on the south coast of England. Although Hastings Direct was founded in 1997, Hastings Essentials wasn’t established until 2008, as an insurance product targeted at drivers who wanted only basic and affordable cover. They aimed to help drivers who didn’t want to pay for cover and features that they didn’t use or need, and so help keep the costs of insurance low.

Hastings Essentials car insurance offers basic cover including damage made to your vehicle as a result of an accident, vandalism, fire, or theft. Although Hastings Essentials is targeted at individuals who want no-frills car insurance, their policies can include some features customers may find useful, such as use of a courtesy car and optional no claims discount protection. As Hastings Essentials customers probably just want a simple car insurance policy, they are unlikely to want any optional extras. However, if they did want to purchase legal expenses for example, they may be able to do so.

Drivers can get a quote and purchase a policy online or over the phone. They may also pay for their Hastings Essentials car insurance in monthly instalments if they wish. If customers are involved in an accident, they can call the 24-hour claims line.
