P J Hayman Heritage


P J Hayman Formed

P J Hayman & Company was founded by Peter Hayman and was first based in Petersfield, Hampshire. The 2.5 roomed offices were home to a Claims Manager, PA, Accounts Personal, Sectary, as well as PJH.

We’ve always had core products and have worked alongside brokers since the beginning, the first were Bowhills and Meon Travel. Our first product was on one sheet of A4, called ‘P J Hayman Travel Insurance’.


P J Hayman Embraces Change

At the dawn of the millennium, we embraced some technological changes, such as the creation of P J Hayman’s first website. Also, we innovated from phone web to PC systems – called Delta – to capture customer’s requirements and quotes. As we celebrated 10 years in business, we moved to Stansted house.

Our earliest products included Travel Plus and Adventures – both of which are still very much part of our portfolio. Free Spirit was aquired in 2003 and is our largest seller.

September 2001


We’ve been through all sorts of challenges over our 32 years in business – not least of which was 9/11. One of our policies looked after a customer, while stranded in America due to the terrorist attacks. We paid out for his extra six days spent in the USA and he was both grateful and surprised.

2002 - 2015

Specialist Products

International terrorism attacks have led us to use our strong expertise to create and enhance a range of specialist products to cover a wide range of hard-to-place risks.
