Announcing your Insurance Choice Awards Finalists 2017

After 10 weeks of voting, today we're announcing which insurers have been named an Insurance Choice Awards 2017 Finalist.

By the end of the voting period, the Insurance Choice Awards will have become the largest consumer voted awards for the insurance industry. These awards are a bit special because they help Smart Money People and UK consumers, to find the most customer-centric insurers and to put customers at the heart of the industry. With product-specific categories like 'Best Car Insurance Provider' and 'Best Home Insurance Provider' we're making it easy for consumers to find great insurance firms. Categories like 'Innovation of the Year', 'Best Newcomer' and 'Best Insurance App' also help to reflect the changing face of the industry.

All firms named a Finalist in the Insurance Choice Awards should be incredibly proud of the great feedback received from consumers, and have earned the right to display a Finalist badge:

And so, without any further ado...the moment we've all been waiting for...
