Some of the information is helpful but there does not seem to be much organized for people in Northern Ireland and I cannot find a contact number for the Northern Ireland office to make any enquiries or have a point of contact to ask for advice etc.

Trying to find simple information what insurance covers seems to be non existant. It should be there on a page that so people can readily see what it covers instead of logging in. Secondly, logging in can be a right pain if the system doesn't work. Has anyone else had probs?
