About

our policy?

Kudos Insurance is an independent insurance provider based in Huddersfield – and our service is truly personal. To us, you are an individual, not a number. When you call us, you won’t be put through to some faceless call centre overseas or forced through some frustrating automated system.

Instead, you will speak to a member of our friendly team – trained professionals, most of whom were born and raised in the town. You’ll probably know some of them. When you visit us at The Old Gatehouse, you can expect free car parking and a coffee as you talk over your insurance requirements with a dedicated account handler who has your best interests in mind.

Whether you’re making an enquiry, starting a policy, placing a renewal or making a claim, responsibility for managing the whole process will be in the hands of your personal account handler.

Our team has many years of professional experience in personal insurance – we’re not called Kudos for nothing! We take pride in offering first-class service at competitive prices and we specialise in finding you exceptional personal insurance deals.

So whether you’ve bought an engagement ring or a house to rent, hired a classic car or a motorhome for the weekend, or you’re planning a world cruise, rest assured that we’ll advise you of the best insurance policies for your needs.

We can do that because we are an independent insurance broker. That means we will review a wide range of insurers nationwide on your behalf to find the most appropriate, best-value policy. And we’ll provide a jargon-free explanation of any small print.

We can also arrange cover for more unusual situations such as unoccupied properties, small-scale renovation projects and properties with a history of subsidence or flooding. Please call Kudos so that one of our trained team can take care of your personal insurance.

We are authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority and as an independent broker Kudos is free to search the leading insurers to provide you with cover tailored to your needs at a price to suit you.

    I’ve worked in personal lines insurance for over 20 years. My areas of expertise include providing cover for homes, cars, vans, motorbikes – the list goes on and includes even the harder-to-find types of insurance. Being local means I have a good knowledge of the Huddersfield area. Call into our friendly office to see us, for all your insurance needs under one roof. When I’m not at work I enjoy spending time with my family and friends and out walking my dog.

    I have worked in the insurance industry for 27 years, so I am the life and soul at parties! Although I am not from Huddersfield I am a Yorkshireman from Doncaster so I appreciate true value for money and that is what I want to create at Kudos. I love sport, especially football, and spending time with my family; I hope that our clients appreciate the family atmosphere we have in the office so please call in and have a coffee and see how we can help you with your insurance needs.

    I have worked in insurance for over 30 years for companies and brokers, and I prefer the broker side because of the personal contact with customers. We love to have a catch-up when you call to renew your policy, replace your car, move home or book a holiday. Just give us a call, or pop in for a chat and a coffee or for a new business quotation. I've lived in Halifax all my life, and enjoy walking, spending time with family and friends and not forgetting my holidays abroad.
