Royal & SunAlliance has announced a deal with specialist insurance company Caravan Guard to provide caravan, motorhome and holiday home cover to its customers.
The policies will be available from Caravan Guard either online or via the telephone beginning in October. The five-year deal will bring over 35,000 policyholders under the wing of Royal & SunAlliance (R&SA), the company said.
We have been working with Caravan Guard on their motorhome scheme for the last three years, and we are delighted that they have agreed to sign up to a five-year deal with us, not only for their motorhome business, but for their entire product range including caravan and trailer tent insurance, David Greaves, schemes business manager at R&SA, commented. We see this as an excellent growth opportunity.
Caravan Guard’s marketing director, Chris Nettleton, also revealed that the insurer aims to double its gross written premiums by 2010 under an aggressive investment and development strategy. This will involve creating a second call center, increasing employee headcount, launching an online quote and purchase system, and diversifying into new markets, he said.
