Have you been refused business insurance?

At Thistle, we’re committed to finding insurance solutions for businesses that others typically say no to. If you don’t quite fit the model, there’s a good chance you will struggle to find insurance cover and that’s where we are here to help. Often, being refused cover is no reflection on you or your business and sometimes the reason you get declined can be something quite innocent.

We’re here to help if you’ve been declined because of:

  • Unusual occupation
  • Lack of trading history
  • Non-Standard Premises
  • Previous Claims history
  • CCJ / Bankruptcy history
  • High Risk Liability Exposures
  • And many more reasons…

Our experienced team will get to know you and your business, helping to find insurance cover that reflects your individual needs. We use a panel of insurers which means we have a broader range of insurance products available to us, helping those who have struggled to obtain quotations in the past.

We compare prices from a range of leading insurance providers
