    We're Zego. Insurance made flexible. Simple. Better.

    Founded in 2016, we noticed that even though the way people were working and doing business was changing, their insurance remained the same - and that got us thinking.

    What if there was a way to make insurance more flexible to meet the growing demands of everyone from delivery drivers, to contractors and businesses... 🤔

    Insurance that delivers. 🛵

    We started with an hourly policy for scooter delivery drivers. It meant drivers no longer had to pay for insurance they didn’t need. Instead they could get flexible cover for the hours they worked.

    Within months the Zego app was launched, allowing users to get the insurance they required on the go.

    Since then we’ve released plenty more products including 30 day and annual policies for scooter and car delivery drivers. We’ve also designed flexible public liability insurance for contractors, allowing them to protect their work, over a term that suits their needs.

    Working hard. 💪

    Whether it’s a private hire driver picking up a passenger in the middle of the night, or a contractor working all hours to meet a deadline, we know our customers work really hard.

    To us, it was vitally important that we worked just as hard for them as they do for us - and that meant launching new products, creating a bigger team and entering new markets.

    Branching out. 🌍

    The team grew from 12 to 50 within a matter of months and is still expanding today, with departments adopting a tech-first approach to look into potential new markets and products - all with the aim of giving delivery drivers, couriers, contractors, businesses and more access to flexible insurance that’s designed to match their requirements.

    A growing business. 🙌

    So far we’ve created hourly, 30 day and annual insurance policies for everyone from cyclists to taxi drivers and beyond, but we’re always looking towards the future with new products added all the time.

    Our list of work providers is growing too, enabling more and more people to take advantage of flexible insurance that fits the way they work.

    We’ve also broadened our horizons by welcoming gig economy workers throughout Europe to Zego - and we’re only just getting started…

    Always listening. 👂

    If we’ve learnt anything (on our journey) so far it’s that listening is extremely important. We take our lead from gig economy workers, and thanks to our tech base we can adapt quickly, meaning if the demand for a product arises, we deliver it fast.
