Announcing the Insurance Choice Awards 2018 Finalists
After a voting period which has seen over 19k UK consumers share their insurance experiences, today we're announcing which firms have been named an Insurance Choice Awards 2018 Finalist.
Now in their third year, the Insurance Choice Awards are 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 aiming to make it a little easier for consumers to find great insurance firms. Categories like 'Innovation of the Year' and 'Best Newcomer' 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 so, without any further ado...the moment we've all been waiting for...
