Castle Cover launched on 31st July 2006 as a new entrant in the ever growing over 50’s general insurance market. Castle Cover is the third major brand within the fifty plus insurance market

Castle Cover is led by well-known industry expert, Andrew Marchington and is backed by HSBC Bank and Asset Ventures Ltd., part of the family investment vehicle that controls Primary Group, the Bermuda based insurance distributor.

Castle Cover will hit a turnover of £100m and sign up over half a million customers by 2011.

Castle Cover has the advantage of launching with a blue chip panel that includes AXA, RSA and AIG giving a great advantage in neither being tied to one supplier, nor owned by an Insurer.

Marchington does not believe the over 50’s have had a good deal on Insurance and therefore believe Castle Cover will carry on their rapid success within the market place. The over 50’s are more likely to be careful with their homes and possessions and less likely to exaggerate or make up home insurance claims, making them low risk.

Castle Cover is based in Poole, Dorset, United Kingdom where over 400 jobs will be created by 2011 and offer a UK based customer services.

British Householders Overpaying on Home Insurance by

British Householders Overpaying on Home Insurance by £1.3 Billion per Year, Says Confused.com

Cardiff, UK (PRWEB) April 1, 2009

British householders are overpaying on home insurance by a staggering £1.3billion every year, according to Confused.com.*

Despite having discovered how easy it is to compare products and prices online for car insurance, and making substantial savings by doing so**, consumers are not applying the same approach to their home insurance.

Confused.com found that, in 2008, just 7% of motor customers, who were also homeowners, checked to see if they could find a better deal online for their home insurance; leaving a whopping 93% who did not apply this savvy shopper logic to their home insurance.

The average saving on home insurance for Confused.com customers was £185 in 2008, suggesting that many homeowners could, very simply and quickly, save themselves money and ensure that they continue to have a home insurance policy that suits their circumstances.

Darren Black, head of home contents insurance at Confused.com, says: “Almost 44% of UK homeowners have not reviewed their home insurance policies in the last five years, yet 65% of motorists say they have used comparison sites to ensure they get the right deal for their car insurance. *** It is unlikely Britons care more about their cars than their homes – but they could be a little too trusting that the home insurance policy they took out several years ago is still the right policy at the right price.”

Confused.com also warns that homeowners who are not checking their house insurance policies on a regular basis could also find that their policies are no longer suitable for their circumstances. This could cost them if they realise too late; specifically when they come to make a claim. As a general rule, it pays to check any insurance policy on a regular, or at least on an annual, basis. That way, consumers are unlikely to receive any nasty surprises when they least need them.
