About us

Life's better with Vitality

Who we are

At Vitality, everything we do is driven by our core purpose: to make people healthier and to enhance and protect their lives. We focus on encouraging healthy living and rewarding people for doing so – a key element of our Shared Value model. 

Through our market-leading health, life, car insurance and investments, and the Vitality Programme, we empower our members to take control of their wellness and develop long-term healthy habits – that is good for them, good for us and good for society. 

We believe in this so much so that Vitality, with our parent group Discovery, has established a bold pledge – to get 100 million people 20% more active by 2025. This pledge also forms part of our sustainability commitment, in which we're aiming to achieve carbon neutrality by 2025, and reach Net Zero by 2050 or earlier.

What we do

We aim to be the best at everything we do, offering comprehensive and award-winning Health and Life cover and positively different investments to our members.

VitalityHealth plans provide start-to-finish private care with Vitality GP video consultations; fast access to consultants and treatment, as well as a Full Cover Promise.

VitalityLife has a complete range of protection products. Our life insurance comes in two forms: Term Life Insurance or Whole of Life Cover and our Serious Illness Cover protects you for nearly four times as many conditions as other providers.

VitalityInvest offers savings and retirement plans that motivate you to save earlier and for longer, with rewards for positive lifestyle habits, that can help you enjoy a longer, healthier, more financially secure life.

Shared value

Our Shared Value Model is based on the concept of interventions we can make as an insurer that will inspire behavioural change among our members – for the better. It’s an incentive-based model, in which we reward our members through a range of partners and benefits, when they take steps to be healthy. As market disruptors, we continue to transform the world of insurance through Shared Value. We know that society is increasingly demanding that companies have a strong social purpose, and by focusing on creating a healthier society, we are truly at the forefront of this. It’s good for our members, good for us and good for society. 

Partners and Rewards

One of the ways we encourage our members to live a healthier lifestyle is through our range of partners and rewards. 

Members can access a range of benefits as part of their plan, such as discounts on sports shoes at Runners Need, spa packages at Champneys, hotels through Mr & Mrs Smith, gym memberships at Virgin Active, David Lloyd or Nuffield Health, health checks at Bluecrest, as well as the ability to earn rewards.

When members get active, they can earn regular treats.Find out more about our rewards.
