What we are doing to make it easy for you

Our online platform has been built to simplify comparing and buying business insurance. This allows us to reduce costs, increase pricing transparency and decrease the hassle of getting insurance for time-poor and cost-conscious business owners. This also enables us to remain fiercely committed to the small business community, whether it’s to get a better deal or to process a claim. At Bi-me, no policy is too small for us and we’ll go the extra mile for everyone.


We’ve taken away the complex forms and paperwork and moved the process online. By answering a few quick questions you can receive multiple quotes within seconds.  Comparing policies side-by-side, so you get the cover that is right for you, once decided you can buy immediately, online. You’ll be able to instantly access your policy documents whenever you need them.

Streamlined costs

You’ll have to agree the prices we offer are very competitive. Our insurance partners pay us a commission when you choose to be insured by them, but that cost will be included in your quote. We also charge a platform fee to cover some of our operating costs, like keeping our website secure and providing a friendly voice to answer the phone.

There when needed

 If you prefer to talk to a real person, our friendly team is here to help. If you need to make a claim on your policy, we’ll be there to make the process as painless as possible. Our claims team will manage the process for you, so while you get on with running your business, we’ll follow up with your insurer and keep you updated on the progress of your claim.

Cover by Leading Insurers

Gone are the days of back and forth calls and emails between brokers, insurers, and clients to get the best pricing.
Our platform connects directly to multiple insurers to get you the best cover and rates.
