About Getcover

Getcover & Company Limited has been at the leading edge of online insurance since its launch on the 17th March 1999.

A fully Irish owned and run company, it is the original of its kind in the Republic Of Ireland allowing Customers to arrange, and purchase, personal insurance products in a simple and painless way on-line.

The business is the brainchild of Finbarr Crotty, an insurance broker from Cork, who saw an unexploited market in on-line travel insurance. In February 2007, having successfully developed a loyal and growing client base of internet savvy travellers, the company branched into the Household market sector.

The company has continued to innovate and grow by sticking to its core philosophies of consistently exceeding customer expectations in an approachable yet professional manner.

The locally based, Getcover team is based in Sandyford Business Park, Dublin 18.
