Since 1885: Over 135 years of service

TFS started in 1885 as a members’ club at a bus company providing peace of mind to drivers who, in exchange for a penny or two per week, knew that if they died while working on the buses, their loved ones would have some money to help them pay for essentials.

The principles are the same today. We still provide that peace of mind through our Sickness and Hospitalisation Plans, as well as offering a place to save with our Tax-free Savings Plans. Membership is open to anyone associated with the transport and logistics industries, their family and friends. Our products are designed especially for anyone working in the transport and logistics industries and we believe are affordable.

At Your Service, Throughout Your Service and Beyond

In 2023, the Transport Friendly Society had around 22,000 members across the transport and logistics sectors, and assets of around £75 million under management. And of course, we’re fully regulated by the UK’s financial authorities.

Did you know? In 2023 the Transport Friendly Society paid out over £1.3 million in Sickness claims, including Covid related claims and nearly £170k in Discretionary Benefits. Even if you change employer or leave the transport and logistics industries you may still be able to keep your plan!
