Sounds crazy but it's not. We don’t base prices on crude demographics like age, instead we give you a price based on how you actually drive. By not insuring bad drivers, we reward good drivers with huge savings.

People who drive well are less likely to have an accident, & therefore should pay less for their
car insurance regardless of their age, marital status and occupation etc.
The price you are currently paying is based primarily on demographics, & relies on a broken
system where both good & bad drivers are pooled together. Essentially if you are a good driver
you are subsidising the cost of bad drivers’ accidents.
Your driving behaviour is the primary factor in determining the price you pay. By simply not
insuring bad drivers (the 30% of drivers who make up almost 50% of all claims), we pay out
fewer claims than traditional insurers & pass those savings on to our community of
Excellent insurance provider and cheapest provider. The test drive was easy and simple to do. Customer service is excellent and Richard and his team are always there to assist. Very responsive and the quote I purchased was cheaper than all other comparison sites I have visited. I have saved myself near enough £1000 on insurance I would highly recommend rooster and wish all success for rooster team. Keep up the great work.
Everyone needs to know about Rooster. Rooster advisors are always on hand to answer any questions, I had a few during the test drive and as I was completing the purchase. They were answered within 2 minutes each time. Had a little hiccup when I purchased the insurance but it was sorted immediately. Would HIGHLY recommend Rooster insurance to anyone looking for cheaper insurance. Mine was around 30% cheaper!
Simple, we don’t insure bad drivers, the 30% who make almost 50% of all claims. So our community of good drivers don’t have to pay out these costs.
We also don’t have the high overheads of traditional insurance companies - no swanky head offices, no legacy computer systems to support & no armies of people doing manual processes. Instead we have built a new insurance company powered by modern technology to automate our processes & pass the savings back to our community.
You won’t find us spending millions on trying to grab your attention with expensive marketing campaigns or on price comparison sites - every time you buy from a comparison site it indirectly costs you £50 to £70. Instead we rely on our community to spread the word & reward them with cash when they make referrals.
Absolutely we offer fully comprehensive insurance on par with the big insurers, & the option to customise your cover to suit your individual circumstances.
We work with an innovative underwriter with huge amounts of experience. The premium is then re-insured by a global re-insurance giants Munich Re & Trans Re.

No, we do not offer insurance cover during the test drive period.
We only offer policies once the test drive is complete and you have proven you are a good driver.
The single largest factor in calculating your quote is your driving. During the test drive we measure and analyse how, when & where you drive to build a personalised driving risk model.
We consider other factors as well – we use several traditional factors which are mathematically predictive of risk or fraud, as well as your driving history.
We are committed to eliminating as many demographic factors as we can as our technology and artificial intelligence gets smarter.
You won’t know until you complete the test drive - it depends on your driving skills and habits. Good drivers can save up to 40% off their previous price, so it's definitely worth giving the test drive a go and finding out how much you could save.
No, we finish monitoring your driving behaviour as soon as your test drive period is complete, which is usually after 3 weeks. By this stage we have collected enough data for our algorithms to accurately assess how safe a driver you are.
We don't insure bad drivers, the 30% who make up 50% of all accidents. This means good drivers no longer have to be pooled with bad & essentially subsidise the costs of their claims. By not insuring bad/high risk drivers we can pass huge savings to our community of good drivers.
No. We simply take a snapshot of your driving behaviour before offering a quote.
You need to be over 20, have been driving for at least 12 months & have your driving licence to hand.
The sign up process takes less than a minute & rather than having to answer pages of questions we simply take a scan of your driving licence and collect your relevant driving history from the DVLA & other databases.
No the Rooster app does not need to be open. You give it permission to run in the background on your phone when you sign up for the test drive.
Basically, follow the rules of the road, be mindful of other drivers. Braking, speeding, times of day, miles driven and roads used all play a part of the algorithms which calculate your quote.
The simple answer is that we are new to the market. Having founded Rooster Insurance in January 2019 we have been working flat out to deliver the most innovative car insurance pricing on the market, which we were able to finally launch in July 2020.
We are FCA approved & regulated. Our insurance is underwritten by a forward thinking underwriter Mulsanne Insurance, then the premium is re-insured by global re-insurance giants Munich Re & Trans Re.
