Waggel Are Barking Up The Right Tree

IE is always looking to cover start-up stories, so this is right up our alley;

Innovative entrepreneurs Andrew Leal and Ross Fretten launched Waggel in December 2018, raising £10m in funding.  Across 2020, Waggel saw a surge in policy holders from 18,000 to 45,000, approximately 150% growth.

‘The Apprentice’ graduate Ross Fretten, hand in hand with Co-Founder Andrew Leal, now employ over 50 staff and are making a name for themselves in the notoriously tough-to-enter insurance market.  Focusing on the next generation of pet owners, Waggel is offering a high-tech product that cuts through the confusion.

With the huge increase in families adding a pet to their household across lockdown – illustrated by a 60% surge in demand for pet insurance from March to June 2020 – it brings with it a huge proportion of first-time owners who may not be familiar with pet insurance and how it works. 

Waggel has created an award-winning, straight-forward product which appeals to this audience, streamlining the insurance process with only one product – a Lifetime policy, that is adjustable by coverage limit and excess.

The product is tech focused, allowing customers access to their own insurance dashboard where they can see all their coverage details including real time tracking of claims – it also gives customers access to services such as a free vet consultation, behavioural and nutritional video calls, discounts and rewards from pet and human partners.

Andrew Leal, CEO at Waggel comments: We are really excited to partner with SEOPA and Quotezone. We always like to work with people that share our primary core value of always putting the customer experience first”.

Greg Wilson, Seopa CEO and Founder of Quotezone.co.uk comments: I admire the passion and drive of the Waggel team, this particular market is incredibly competitive but I believe their streamlined, high-tech approach will cut through the noise and offer our customers a quality, easy-to-use product that suits their budget.

At Seopa we apply the same passion to our comparison technology. Its innovative capabilities allow our partners the opportunity to reach a large and relevant audience, showcasing their quality products and illustrating their exclusive features and benefits across our personal finance comparison brands, CompareNI.com and Quotezone.co.uk.”

As part of the partnership, all Quotezone.co.uk customers will have access to two months of free pet insurance (first two months), when they purchase with Waggel from 13/12/21 – 17/01/22, available on all Waggel cat and dog insurance policies.
