LONDON, May 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
comparethemarket.com, one of the UK's leading price comparison websites, has announced it is adding The Green Insurance Company to its home insurance panel.
The Green Insurance Company has boosted its personal lines portfolio with the introduction of a home insurance product which will offset one tonne of each policy holder's household emissions annually free of charge. Customers with "green" homes, those fitted with solar panels or wind turbines, will also receive extra discounts.
The insurance intermediary, part of the Kwik-Fit Financial Services Group based in Uddingston, launched in 2007 and offers consumers a number of environmentally friendly products including car, motorbike, breakdown and pet insurance.
June Lynch, managing director of Kwik-Fit Financial Services, said: "As an environmentally-conscious business, The Green Insurance Company has resonated with a growing number of customers and helped us achieve strong growth figures since we launched. The introduction of our home insurance product was the natural next step for us; we believe our strong environmental credentials as well as an extremely competitive pricing structure will appeal to customers seeking excellent value for money while benefiting the environment."
The launch of the home insurance product follows the planting of The Green Insurance Company's one millionth tree last year (June 2011) as part of the biggest voluntary carbon-offsetting scheme in the UK. To date, The Green Insurance Company has planted over 2.5 millions trees across the UK. Simon McCulloch, Director of Insurance at comparethemarket.com said: "The Green Insurance Company brings a different dimension to comparethemarket.com, helping us to extend our offering even further. We're pleased that this move will enable us to give more customers competitive and eco-friendly options for their home insurance."
