Hello we’re Dinghy There is a better way to do business insurance and to make a difference. One that protects customers without making them pay ridiculous fees and commissions. Where colleagues get paid properly for all the amazing work they do. One that reduces the negative footprint offices add to the planet’s problems (we work remotely). And where insurance is easy to understand. We went that way. What we do Quite simply we are revolutionising insurance for freelancers and the self employed. For the first time you can turn your insurance up or down, on or off depending on your needs. Saving you money whilst still keeping you covered. We do not charge up front for your insurance policy, instead billing you at the end of the month for the cover you have used. And our quote process is the quickest around. Just 3 minutes from beginning to being insured. We offer the following bespoke products for freelancers: – Professional IndemnityPublic LiabilityBusiness Equipment Insuranceand Freelancer assist as standard Get your quote
What’s in a name? We ‘ummed’ and ‘ahhed’ over what we should call our new exciting freelance insurance business. We asked ourselves – what name could capture something that is:
  • Fast
  • Responsive
  • Flexible
  • There when you need it, in times of trouble?
And that’s when it hit us – a Dinghy! So Dinghy was born – the first insurance provider to give freelancers a flexible insurance product that adapts to how they work. With the option of pausing insurance to save money, a 24/7 self-service area for instant changes, and a claims team available 24/7, we have crafted the dinghy of the insurance world. Get your quote
We support Living Wage With great work should come great reward. The government’s National standard outlines an absolute minimum, which doesn’t fit the standards we want for employees. So we joined 3,500 other UK businesses as an accredited Living Wage employer volunteering the real Living Wage (actually way above) and the London Living Wage because we believe all staff deserve better.

We will make insurance a social good again Insurance was originally a social good, hard to believe right? It enhanced freedom, created security, promoted good health and increased prosperity. And so it evolved. It enabled people to drive cars, buy houses and go on holiday. But over the last 20 years or so insurance companies have changed; expecting the worst of people rather than the best with premiums rising year on year and less claims being paid out. We are changing all of that. With no upfront premiums, you pay what you used throughout the month. Billed by the second, in arrears. With no interest, no credit checks, and no fees. Professional Indemnity claims with no excess, Equipment claims resolved in 24 hours. Welcome to Dinghy. We are making insurance for the future. Your future. Get your quote
