Personal line insurer esure has announced a new partnership with Hood Group, a data and technology-driven insurance specialist, to launch a new travel insurance product across the former company’s esure and Shelia’s Wheels brands. The appointment of Hood Group comes following a competitive tender process, says esure.
The new product will give customers a range of additional cover options, meaning they will be able to build a policy that suits their needs, according to esure. The company’s chief underwriting officer Jon Wilshire said: “Hood Group is committed to innovation, meaning the travel insurance proposition it delivers will continue to evolve and be relevant to our customers.”
Paul Firkins, business development director of Hood Group, was proud that his company was chosen to partner with esure Group, adding that he believes ‘our drive to be at the forefront of using technology and data to enrich the solutions that we deliver, as well as our ability to provide sustainable and profitable growth through our digital marketing skills, is really striking a chord’.
