Zixty, the environmentally conscious motor insurtech, has announced a launch into broker distribution. Yeah, see what we did with that headline there?
Ethical broker Evergreen Insurance Services, is the first broker to go live with Zixty, initially offering its short term car insurance with free carbon offsetting. Many drivers like to know that their emissions are being offset in some way and for brokers it’s another plus point when selling online, especially when utilising social media channels or brand ambassadors. Here’s the word;
The product is available to market as online quote and buy, through a broker’s website, with introductory commission, and can be white labelled. The cover is aimed at occasional and short-term drivers who want to minimise the environmental impact of their driving. Zixty was the first insurer to offer carbon offsetting at the core of its app-based short-term policy in 2022, calculating and offsetting the carbon footprint of up to 100 miles of journeys per day, free of charge to customers.
Andy James, CEO of Zixty, comments: “As soon as we launched, we had interest from brokers. Whilst Zixty is foremost a direct-to-consumer brand, brokers will play an important part in maximising our distribution and this is the next step in our growth strategy. We’re delighted to be partnering with an ethical broker like Evergreen – its values are closely aligned with our own.”
Evergreen Insurance Services is an award winning environmentally responsible personal and commercial lines broker. Its mission is to donate up to 25% of its commission earned from each policy to one of its wildlife conservation charity partners. Customers are able to choose which of the charities to make the donation to. 10% is donated in year 1, 15% in year 2 and 25% in year 3 and thereafter every year at renewal.
David Gardiner, Managing Director of Evergreen Insurance Services, comments: “Evergreen was set up first and foremost to provide insurance solutions for our client’s needs, but we saw that there was a new way for insurance that’s not just about the bottom line. Like our customers, we are passionate about the natural world and want to help them make an ethical choice when choosing an insurance policy – securing quality cover whilst also helping to protect our precious environment. It’s vital to our brand therefore that we partner with insurers that have strong environmental credentials and values. As a fresh, new, environmentally conscious insurer, Zixty ticks all the boxes and we’re thrilled to be launching this innovative, environmentally conscious, short term motor cover as part of our personal and commercial lines portfolio.”
Zixty policies are underwritten by a growing panel of motor insurers. Short term policy cover ranges from 60 minutes to 28 days to cater for the growing number of drivers who don’t own a vehicle, either due to cost and/or environmental concerns, and want a choice of cover options for short periods.
