Making electric easy with Direct Line

We’ve partnered with Zoom EV to offer all new car insurance customers and those renewing their policy from the 8th of June a free bundle of discounts.

The world is making the move to hybrid and electric vehicles, and we want to make the transition to plug-in vehicles as smooth as possible.

The bundle is designed for hybrid and electric vehicle owners, but is available to anyone who buys or renews a Direct Line car insurance policy during the eligible dates.
