Staff Absence Insurance / Terms of use

Who are we?

Across all lines of mainstream insurance, buyers have become increasingly reliant on comparison sites to find the most suitable and cheapest deals. Sites like MoneySupermarket help customers find exactly what they’re looking for in a fraction of the time and with comparably little effort.

This gave us the bright idea to create a simple and user-friendly comparison site to compare our own brands, which would change the way schools search for staff absence insurance.

Introducing StaffAbsenceInsurance.com

This unique comparison site puts a stop to schools trolling countless websites to request quotes from individual providers. Our modern and carefully designed website compares prices, levels of cover and additional policy benefits from a number of our own trusted brands.

Whether our users are looking for an insurance policy for the first time or want to beat their renewal quote, we’re here to help. Schools simply provide us with a few details and we’ll give them an instant quote comparison from our own three brands!

Which brands do we list?

We list a range of our own trusted staff absence insurance brands enabling you to review and compare comparative quotes all in one place.

We seek out providers to list, but we also welcome applications. However, applicants will only be listed if they meet our standards for quality and customer service.

You are always our top priority, so we work hard to make sure that all the companies we list can deliver the high-quality service you deserve. We do not recommend any company and do not provide any advice, rather we would detail as much relevant information as possible for you to make an informed decision on which provider, if any, you wish to pursue.

Please note, we cannot be held responsible for the content of external websites and by using the links provided to access these separate websites you will be subject to the terms of use applying to those sites

We currently list the following staff absence insurance brands. All brands shown below are distributed by Absence Protection Limited:

  • Absence Protection Limited
  • Teacher Absence Limited
  • Harrington Bates

Staff absence and maternity products are underwritten by Collinson Insurance, a trading name of Astrenska Insurance Limited.

Maternity only products are a service provided by Maternity Funding Group Limited Partnership.

How do we list the quotations?

We display relevance to your requested search and any prices quoted would include Insurance Premium Tax (IPT) and any associated fees. Whilst this information is as accurate as possible, if you change any details or request any variation in cover, the price may be subject to change once you have been passed over by us to the relevant insurance provider.

How we make money

Staffabsenceinsurance.com receives membership fees from the providers that appear on the site. We only feature our own brands all of whom comply with our strict listing criteria to ensure the high quality and comprehensiveness of the policy cover they offer.

Our calculator lets you compare quotes from a range of our own brands, based on the requirements you provide so you can make sure you are choosing a deal that is right for you.
