Important information for Debenhams insurance customers

As you may have seen in the press the Debenhams brand was recently acquired by another retailer.

Debenhams policies were provided by Somerset Bridge Insurance Services who will continue with their administration, but we can no longer use the Debenhams name and our relationship with them has come to an end. Somerset Bridge Insurance Services are committed to providing all our customers with great cover so we will be rebranding Debenhams policies to our Vavista brand.

We can assure you that your cover remains unaffected so your renewal date will remain the same and you can still service your policy in the same ways. For more policy holder information click on the relevant insurance below:
