History of dotsure.co.za

With more than 20 years' experience in the insurance industry, Oakhurst Insurance Company Limited established dotsure.co.za as a brand in August 2011. We realised the industry was in desperate need of change.

We believe the opportunity for change lie in innovation and in the use of technology, in order for customers to experience a better way of doing insurance. We disrupted the industry by being one of the 1st insurance providers in South Africa that allowed customers to quote, buy and manage their policy wholly online.

Born disruptors with the aim to create fans, not policyholders. Our products are truly customer centric and developed according to the needs (and wants) of you, the client. For this reason, Name Your Price was introduced, which allows customers to pay what they can afford.

dotsure.co.za is not your average insurance provider – We're passionate about you. Your happiness is at the heart of everything we do.
