About Us

At WMIL we pride ourselves on our approach to Motor Insurance. We do not generate income from add-ons and never sell on claims information. We firmly believe that a well-run operation with a sensible approach to risk management will result in appropriately priced products, which we believe are the bedrock of a good Motor Insurance business.

WMIL operate from offices in the City of London and were incorporated in 2012.

If you are a Policyholder, firstly please contact your Broker.

Our Fleet product is backed by our carrier The New India Assurance Co. Ltd.

Claims Management is handled in conjunction with Gallagher Basset, a market leader in the provision of Claims Services.
