Life Insurance quotes from Beagle Street

What does Life Insurance cover?

Life Insurance provides a financial pay-out to your loved ones if you die during the policy term. You set the duration of the policy term when completing the application. So if you take out Life Insurance and pass away before the policy ends then a claim can be made.


Do I need Life Insurance?

  • Pays-out a cover amount, set by you, in the event you pass away
  • The amount you pay per month is fixed for both main types; level and decreasing
  • You can cover both you and your partner with one Joint Life Insurance policy
  • You can protect your loved ones in the event you get critically ill with Critical Illness Cover

Types of Life Insurance

There are two main Life Insurance policy types that we provide, Level Term and Decreasing Term (also known as Mortgage Term).

It’s a good idea to consider both Level Term and Decreasing Term cover when getting your Life Insurance quote from Beagle Street, to compare the type of cover available to you, and how this may change your monthly payments.

Level Term

With a Level Term policy the amount you are covered for is fixed over the policy term.

This gives your loved ones the security of a set payout should you pass away within your policy term.

Decreasing Term

With Decreasing Term the amount you are covered for gets lower over time, meaning your pay-out will be less than the amount you were initially covered for. For this reason Decreasing Term premiums are often lower than those for Level Term, and are used to protect loved ones against debts which you pay off over time, such as mortgages.

Cover you and a loved one with Life Insurance

You have two options if you want to cover you and a loved one with Life Insurance, two separate policies or a single Joint policy.

Two single policies


Two separate policies will cover both you and your partner, and will pay-out on both lives; you may also find that covering the combined policy amount could cost less than a Joint policy.

Cheaper cover when you’re young

The cost of Life Insurance for younger people is significantly cheaper; you could benefit from monthly payments starting from as little as £3 per month for £100,000 life cover [1]. As Term Life Insurance gets increasingly more expensive as you get older it’s good to lock in a lower price while you are younger, because once a policy has been set up the monthly payments for Term Life Insurance never increase during the term of the policy even if you experience health problems later in life!
