Finder Gadget Insurance Customer Satisfaction Awards 2022
See the full results of our independent customer satisfaction survey of 576 gadget insurance customers.
For the first time, we surveyed the customers of some of the largest gadget insurance providers in the UK to find out what they thought about everything from their provider’s customer service to how quickly it pays out in the unfortunate event that they had to make a claim.
Check out who our winner was below, as well as who took home a highly commended award. We’ve also put together a table of all the results with an explanation of how we came up with our results.
The winners are based on both overall satisfaction scores (star ratings) and recommendation scores (the percentage of customers who said they’d recommend the brand to a friend).

Customer satisfaction ratings methodology
In December 2021, we ran a customer satisfaction survey on gadget insurance providers, and 576 people told us about their experience of their insurer.
The survey asked respondents how satisfied they were with their gadget insurance company (on a scale from one to five), and also whether they would recommend their provider to a friend or not. We turned the results into star ratings and shortlisted the top-performing brands for our awards. If there was a draw, we used the recommendation score (that is, the percentage of customers who said they would recommend the brand to a friend) as a tie-breaker.
Full details of our star ratings for this sector are on the insurance ratings methodology page.
★★★★★ — Excellent
★★★★★ — Good
★★★★★ — Average
★★★★★ — Subpar
★★★★★ — Poor
Our customer satisfaction star ratings are based on a survey of 576 customers carried out in December 2021.
