Hastings Direct is the trade name used by Hastings Insurance Services Ltd, a UK-based, and Australian-owned, insurance broker. The company, which was established in 1997, also markets various other insurance products using other trade names, such as, Hasting Essential (barebones car insurance) and Insure Pink (which donates £10m to breast cancer-related charities for every policy purchased).

Hastings Direct is highly respected in the industry owing to its high level of professionalism; being chosen as UK’s Car Insurance Provider of the Year for three consecutive years (2014-2016) is a testament to that.

Despite its sterling reputation, Hastings is still largely a regional player, as evidenced by its relatively small revenue of £570 million in 2016. This is probably due to the fact that the company rarely expands out of South East England.
