Visicover, the online insurance specialist, has launched a new insurance service for UK boat owners. It caters for a wide range of vessel types, from canoes and windsurfers, through personal watercraft and narrowboats, to ocean going sailing yachts and motor cruisers.
The unique aspect of the service is that owners can not only buy their cover online but can also update it online at any time as their requirements change. They can select the precise cover they want, from who can use the vessel, what they use it for and where they want to use it, to what type of insurance they require and to what value. Discounts are available for more experienced users, how securely the boat is stored, clean claims history etc. This facility to ‘tailor make’ their cover, combined with the efficiency of online self-service, means owners can make substantial savings on their insurance premiums.
The launch of the marine product builds on the success of Visicover’s market leading online aircraft insurance service, which is currently available across 10 European countries, including the UK.
Jan Houlberg, Visicover CEO, told PBR, “Clients expectations of insurance providers are becoming ever greater, shaped by their online experiences in other sectors. They want to be able to choose the cover that suits them and update it as their requirements change, all at low cost. The new Visicover insurance service for boat owners allows them to do this simply and efficiently online.” https://visicover.com
