    Cuvva is building a new kind of insurance that’s flexible, simple and jargon-free. The insurance startup sold its first policy in 2016. Since then, the mobile app has sold over one million policies.

    The idea came about after co-founder, Freddy Macnamara, couldn’t get hourly short-term insurance, so he set out to build a marketplace for flexible insurance. Cuvva connects customers directly with insurers, providing comprehensive cover within minutes, and 24/7 customer support. Pioneering short-term insurance, Cuvva was the first to provide both hourly motor insurance and insurance via an app in the UK.

    Cuvva has expanded to offer personal car, learners, van, taxi, and travel insurance.

    Shaping clear and fair insurance has led Cuvva to get funding from leading investors, including LocalGlobe, Seepcamp, Techstars, Tekton and Breega.
