Welcome to Green Car, Home
and Travel insurances from Gooseberry
Green Insurance Services, GGIS.

Every GGIS policy comes with a Carbon Offset included

Car, Home and Travel insurances are all covers which we either have to buy (car insurance is a legal obligation and any property with a mortgage on it must be insured) or really ought to buy (like Travel insurance).

  • on average, a car (other than an electric one) puts out over 2 tonnes of CO2 per year
  • the average house puts out around 10 tonnes of CO2 per year

Now every car owner, householder and traveller can buy the quality insurance cover they need AND offset the associated carbon footprint at the same time.

GGIS MAKES IT EASY TO BE GREEN, by
including carbon offset with every
insurance policy.

 

The “Green insurance” we offer is placed with first-class insurers through our partnership with one of the East of England’s leading insurance brokers, Saffron Insurance*, to provide a range of highly competitive insurance products that will give you the right protection for you and your family.

Green Travel Insurance from GGIS

GGIS Travel insurance is designed for environmentally-aware travellers who want top-quality insurance coverage at a reasonable price but who are also conscious of the carbon footprint involved in travel…and want to do something about it.

Whether you need insurance for holiday or business travel, GGIS Travel Insurance has you covered, and offsets your carbon footprint too!

Does air travel really have a big carbon footprint?

A return flight from London to Malaga, Spain on average produces 0.29 tonnes of CO2 per person, while for London to Orlando, Florida, the figure is 1.09 tonnes.

There’s no way around the fact that flights are bad news for the environment. Planes are worse than most other forms of transport in terms of the impact of greenhouse gases per passenger mile.

What can individuals do?

For anyone concerned about making global warming worse, cutting back on air travel is an obvious goal. But this might mean giving up flying altogether or it might mean taking fewer flights and picking destinations that are closer to home (the further you travel, the greater the carbon emissions).

That is not an option for the vast majority of travellers, but what if you could buy a travel insurance policy complete with carbon offsets to make your travel carbon neutral? Now you can!

GGIS offers a unique Travel insurance combination: top-quality insurance with built-in CARBON OFFSETS to help counteract the carbon footprint of your travel. No other insurer offers this.

Each GGIS Travel insurance policy comes with carbon offsets:

  • 0.25 tonne for every “single trip” policy within Europe
  • 0.5 tonne for every “single trip” policy intercontinentally
  • 1 tonne for every “annual multi-trip policy”.

On request we could also calculate the carbon footprint personalised to your actual travel over one year for a reasonable extra premium.

There is no compromise on the insurance coverage offered with our Travel insurance policies, which are competitive both in price and range of cover compared to any other quality insurer in the market.
