Five weeks ago we launched the beta of the subscription product. The reason for the beta is so we can onboard a small group of users, gather feedback and begin improving everything – from the onboarding process to how you buy a policy.
Up until now, one of the biggest hurdles with the beta has been the underwriting restrictions, which meant we could only insure a small group of people. These restrictions were put in place by our underwriter because they can’t just insure everyone, particularly when launching a new product. They need to build slowly in order to better understand who the customers are and also to make sure the product itself works!
Earlier this week we had a meeting with our underwriter and they have decided to relax or completely remove a lot of these restrictions. Below are some of the big changes that will happen as of the 1st of May:
- Fewer restrictions on occupation.
- We couldn’t insure certain postcodes. This has been lifted and we can insure every postcode except Bradford (Sorry Bradford 😞).
This is a huge win and means we will now be able to quote around 70% more people! 🎉
We’re still continuing with the Beta for a bit longer while we continue to collect more feedback in order to continue improving the product for you.
