Why are you called Instant Quizzes?

Although our website domain is, you’ll have notice that our company name is actually Instant Quizzes. The reason for this is a bit of a long story…

It all began with a small time hobby in 1986, when the company was formed under the name Freequizzes. Hobby became passion and, as demand increased, slowly evolved into enterprise. By 1998, the company was going so strong that we were able to launch our first ever website to provide our pub quiz service nationwide – this one, in fact.

Except, by now things had changed. Freequizzes had become a true business and as of December 2000, a Limited Company, and although we did (and still do) offer some free samples, our name no longer encompassed the true nature of the company. So it was, after over 20 years trading as Freequizzes, we had to relinquish the name. We became Instant Quizzes Ltd. on 5th November 2009 and have continued to grow our brand ever since.

So what does our brand mean? Well, beyond being the nation’s leading pub quiz compilers and providers, we also promise meticulous research, and fresh, new quizzes that are available to download instantly every week. From Bumper Packs to Bingo Quizzes, we aim to be all things to all quizmasters at Instant Quizzes.

You can even try building your own quiz from our quiz question database, the Quiz Creator lets you design the rounds and pick the questions.

Obviously, this issue has vexed you, but think of this:

bullet You can’t get a decent Chicken Vindaloo at Currys
bullet Try starting with a double at Dominos
bullet Coca Cola no longer contains Cocaine
bullet You can’t buy shoes at Boots
bullet You can’t buy fruit at Orange
bullet Just look at the staff at Virgin…..

And besides, if all our questions were ‘Free’

bullet How are we meant to pay for the design, bandwidth etc. for this website?
bullet How do we pay the people who write the questions?
bullet How do we pay the wages of the people who have to sit and type answers to the witless question – “Why are you called Instant Quizzes?”

Why don't you ... ?

Let us have your quizzes for free? – Because this is our livelihood in the same way that pubs sell beer, we sell quizzes

Let us have quizzes on approval – Because the majority don’t pay if we do – check out the free samples and if you like the quizzes, then buy them! In the same way, pubs don’t let you try out 6 different types of beer before you finally settle and pay for the one you want although they may let you have a small, free taste!

Allow payment on invoice – Because this adds to our administration costs and in over 80% of past cases, customers paying on invoice don’t!
