Hedgehog, an exclusively-online car insurance company with insurance capacity from Berkshire Hathaway International Insurance, has teamed up with leading price comparison website, Quotezone.co.uk, to bring its technology-led car insurance offering to a growing number of web-savvy customers across the UK.
Launched in 2018, Hedgehog offers its policyholders an exclusively-online quote system and a Cardiff-based customer service and claims-handling team.
But the company’s commitment to technology and innovation extends beyond its quote engines – Hedgehog also employs innovative data analysis and automated underwriting technologies to improve the risk assessment process, which means it’s able to provide cheaper quotes to drivers that may otherwise have to pay over the odds (because they have points on their license or live in a blacklisted postcode, for instance).
Quotezone.co.uk, meanwhile, was an early pioneer of online comparison technology for the car insurance industry, and has since expanded its offering to provide users with free price comparisons for a wide range of other insurance products, including home insurance, motorhome insurance and van insurance.
Headquartered in Belfast, Northern Ireland, the Quotezone.co.uk platform was launched by Seopa Ltd in 2005, and has since grown to become one of the UK’s leading insurance comparison websites, generating millions of quotes for its partners each year.
This new partnership agreement between the two brands will offer Quotezone.co.uk’s millions of users an opportunity to explore the value and benefits of taking out a car insurance policy through Hedgehog.
Ben Gower, Chairman at Hedgehog, said:
“Hedgehog is looking to partner with forward thinking companies with a digital first approach, like ours, and Quotezone perfectly fits our model. With a great set of partnerships across a broad range of potential customers, Quotezone is helping us to get in front of – and appeal to – more customers than ever before, and we’re very excited about the new partnership.”
Greg Wilson, Founder of Quotezone.co.uk, added:
“Hedgehog’s commitment to harnessing digital technologies in order to better serve those car insurance customers that are often overlooked or underserved is not only admirable, it’s also good business.
“We’re delighted that the company has chosen to partner with our leading price comparison platform, Quotezone.co.uk, and are confident that both the company and our millions of users will greatly benefit from our partnership.”
