Returning to UK after living in Spain for almost 5 years. Marshmallow were by far the cheapest for my car insurance. No concern about having an EU licence or foreign NCB. So easy to set up cover, bought car and arranged insurance online within 10 minutes and all details are on the downloaded app. Can't ask for any more great service

As a young driver from South Africa, trying to find an easy and affordable insurance policy proved to be very difficult. Until I came across Marshmallow, the signing up process online was very quick and easy as well as affordable. Would definitely recommend!!

This is the first time I have used this company. They were fantastic. I have recently come back from France to England to live. They are recognising my no claims. Bonus earned on my French insurance. Hats off to them, they deserve every success.

I'm from Ukraine. And this is my first insurance in England. The company provides excellent conditions for a great price. I will continue to use Marshmallow services and recommend to others.

So far I've found Marshmallow so helpful! I signed up for a policy recently, at a great price and they didn't penalise me because I'd been living in Ireland for a few years before returning to the UK (many insurers do). All the staff I've encountered have been really pleasant and helpful. I likely he online ease of access. All in all, really great!

Coming from America my first impression of getting auto insurance in the UK was I’m going to pay through the nose for it. Once we found marshmallow it was such an easy and smooth experience and the rates are fantastic! Thank you!!

Why did we start an insurance company?

Back in 2017, we spotted a problem. The big insurance companies were charging expats way too much for insurance, or refusing to cover them altogether. We started Marshmallow to make things right.
