About Marmalade

Marmalade is the leading provider of car insurance and cars for young drivers. Founded in 2006, it helps young drivers get behind the wheel, keeps them safe, improves their driving skills and saves money.

As a champion of young people, Marmalade provides a range of products that specifically meet the needs of young people - and their parents - today. These include:

·     Learner Insurance - is tailor-made for provisional drivers, enabling them to drive a parent's car from as little as £2.05 per day while protecting No Claims Bonus.

·     New Driver Insurance - Marmalade offers low insurance premiums from the outset as we trust our customers to be safe and responsible drivers. They are only penalised if they repeatedly drive dangerously, potentially saving hundreds of pounds on premiums. This policy is based on telematics technology - black boxes are installed into the insured car to monitor journeys and to ensure that young person is not driving dangerously. Our black boxes don't have curfews but do provide added security in case of an accident or vehicle theft.

·     Fuel & Go - Marmalade is the only UK insurance company to offer free insurance for 17 year olds through its Fuel & Go scheme. The scheme, which uses black box technology, enables young people to buy a new car with free insurance for the first year for a fixed monthly price.
