Humble, TX (PressExposure) February 17, 2009 -- To satisfy the demand for immediate access, functionality and communication demanded by consumers in the South African short-term insurance market a new website Get Insurance has been launched.
South Africa is experiencing rapid growth in on-line shopping as more people become proficient scanning the marketplace for excellent deals and finding products that meet their requirements. There are a growing number of consumers that recognise both the time and money saving benefits of shopping on-line.
Get Insurance is a one-stop short-term insurance website that provides users with comprehensive information on car-, motorcycle-, household contents-, homeowners- and life insurance. The content on the site enables the users to gain sufficient knowledge to assist them in making an informed decision when purchasing short-term insurance.
According to a recent survey on âEmerging Trends and Strategic Issues in South African Insuranceâ direct insurers are gaining popularity and that insurance brokers and underwriting management agencies had lost ground in distribution coverage.
Research indicates that convenience and accessibility topped price as the most important criteria when selecting an insurer. The rapid growth in the direct insurance industry confirms these findings as direct insurers offer both immediate access and premium discounts.
Direct insurance offers benefits to all income groups and offers the best of both worlds. On-line purchasers enjoy the convenience of 24/7 access but as most direct insurers offer a call back option, they still are afforded the opportunity to speak to an experienced insurance consultant, at no cost. At Get Insurance the potential client simply fills in his details online. The applicant is then afforded the opportunity to discuss his personal short-term requirements with an experienced insurance consultant who specializes in that particular field of insurance, when the consultant contacts the user.
All of the policies sold through Get Insurance are accompanied by brochures or booklets in plain easy-to-understand business writing explaining the policy wording of the products.
Tailor-made business insurance policies now being marketed by the leading direct insurers and available at Get Insurance are specifically designed for Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEâs). Approximately 50% of South Africaâs economic output is generated by SMEâs and these business owners are becoming more open to alternative purchasing options. The ability to do business after normal office hours appeals to these consumers.
Get Insurance offers access to direct short-term insurers which offer clients value added products, such as buy back bonuses, on-line policy management and emergency assistance, all of which contribute in making them the insurers of choice.
Get Insurance is an obligation-free service and is free of charge.
