Saga Travel Insurance

Saga was founded in 1951 in the seaside town of Folkestone by Sidney de Haan. Saga began life as a small hotel offering affordable off-peak holidays exclusively to retired people. Saga grew rapidly and by the 1960's it had added many other UK destinations as well as becoming a pioneer in the Algrave tourism industry. By the 1970's Saga had expanded into Spain, Romania and Yugoslavia and was now the UK's largest rail customer by offering chartered trains around the country. In the 1980's Saga began offering insurance and finacial services specifically designed to their customers. They also began operating Saga cruises and during the 1990's began operating their own ship, the Saga Rose. It was during this period when Saga lowered the age restriction for customers from 60 to 50.

During the 2000's and backed by private equity firm Charterhouse, Saga was partially bought by its staff (20%). At the same time it was merged with the AA for form Acrosmas Holdings which is now approx 20% owned by staff, 35% Charterhouse, 20% Permira, 20% CVC and 5% others. On Friday, May 23 2014, the Saga Group was successfully floated on the London Stock Exchange as a Public Company, and therefore changed its name to Saga PLC. Saga continue to offer a wide range of insurance products including car, home, travel, caravan, van, pet, private medical, life insurance, motorhome and legal services.
