Extensions: Get More from Your Insurance Policy

Modular and flexible insurance? It only takes a few clicks with Getsafe


2 minute read


The concept of insurance is simple. A lot of people pay money in a big pot. If something happens to one person, the costs are shared by all involved. Unfortunately, this great idea that forms the backbone of insurance has been pushed further and further out of view over many decades. Instead, insurance companies and their representatives often have a bad reputation. Insurance could be considered old-fashioned, inflexible, and expensive. And this perception is exactly what Getsafe wants to change.

Create your own insurance package

We’re not just changing insurance by offering a completely digital experience on your smartphone. We’re also attempting to revolutionise the structure of insurance. You should only pay for what you need and insure what you want to insure for as long as you require the cover.

To offer this to our customers, we work with various policy add-ons, known as extensions. This creates a modular structure for insurance – enabling you to build an insurance package that covers your needs.

Find extensions that suit you

Whichever insurance policy or policies you purchased with Getsafe, it’s always best to add extensions via the Getsafe app. You can do this at any time – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. If you haven’t installed the app yet, then simply download it, and register with the email address you used when purchasing your insurance policy.

How it works:

1. Open the Getsafe app

2. Click on any of your active insurance policies

3. Scroll down

4. Here, you can view all available extensions for your policy
