We will also ask you to provide a photo of a government issued ID:
A photo of your drivers licence or a passport would be perfect.
And in addition we need to have a photo of a utility bill to confirm your address:
A photo or a recent utility bill showing your name and address will be great.
We use this to check you are who you say you are and that you do live in the country you are buying a policy for. This is because we are required to know who we are selling to by regulators and we are not dealing with you face to face.
If you don't have these documents to hand you can still purchase a product. However if we cannot verify your identity within 14 days then we will have to cancel your policy and refund you. We will send you reminders.
After you have purchased and confirmed your identity you will get an email confirming your policy details.
