Our story

Rothwell & Towler has its roots in a family insurance business founded in 1973. Since then we have grown to become a leading insurance intermediary, with a portfolio of specialist travel and lifestyle insurance brands. Our policies provide peace of mind to more than 350,000 customers per year.

The principles of the family business remain today: honesty, integrity, compassion. Our business has grown because we do the right thing by customers. And we were one of the first intermediaries to issue cover for complex existing medical conditions. That includes the innovation of a travel policy for customers with HIV over 20 years ago.

As insurance markets evolve, we are excited to do the same. By blending emerging technologies with our industry expertise, we are going to help create a future where insurance becomes almost seamless for the consumer. A shared ambition to provide both quality and value to our customers is what drives us. It’s why a people-first approach to insurance is at the heart of everything we do.

What do our customers say?

Customer reputation: it matters. That’s why we are proud of what people say about us on consumer review platform Trustpilot. Following tens of thousands of reviews from confirmed purchasers, our established brands are consistently among the top rated in their category.
