A new initiative from Post Insurance – a wholly owned subsidiary of An Post – is encouraging Irish drivers and home owners to provide their insurance renewal dates in return for financial support for their local Post Office and the chance to win a holiday.
When people provide renewal details to a Post Office, Post Insurance will take the renewal details supplied and contact customers for a quote. All quotes completed by Post Insurance from these referrals will generate commission payments directly to your preferred local Post Office; no policy purchase is necessary for the Post Office to benefit. Additional commission is also payable for any of these policy quotes that are purchased by customers.
According to an Irish study, people who shop around for insurance can make some very big savings – up to €1,249 for some motorists buying a new policy.
However, hundreds of thousands of Irish drivers and home owners forego this opportunity because they fail to fully appreciate the potential for savings on their car or home insurance or because of the hassle of switching providers.
Gary Finnerty, Head of Marketing at Post Insurance said: “People like to support local but sometimes do not see an easy way of doing that given their hectic lifestyles. This is a win-win promotion which allows people to support their local Post Office in a small way while at the same time getting access to some great home and car insurance rates and the chance to win a holiday of a lifetime. We in Post Insurance want to work with local Post Offices to bring excellent insurance rates to drivers and homeowners throughout Ireland to the mutual benefit of Postmasters and Post Insurance. This promotion is a step towards achieving that ambition. Participation is only a text away”.
