P&O Ferries, Britain’s number one ferry company*, has partnered with data and technology driven insurance specialist, Hood Group, to launch its new travel insurance product following a competitive tender process.
The new offering developed by Hood Group for P&O Ferries gives customers the choice of buying their travel insurance independently or alongside their ferry ticket purchase. The range of insurance packages also offers a number of different options such as camping or motorcycling overseas so that travellers can tailor cover to suit their own unique requirements.
Hood Group will also work closely in partnership with P&O Ferries’ own team to deliver the digital marketing strategy to drive policy sales and complement customer base activity.
Paul Firkins, Business Development Director of Hood Group, says: “We’re delighted to have the opportunity to work with P&O Ferries. Our response to their brief demonstrated our clear understanding of what P&O Ferries wants to achieve and the collaborative approach that we adopt to ensure our mutual goals are reached.”
He continues: “More importantly to them is our focus on market disruptor innovation. P&O Ferries is a company with a proud heritage dedicated to delivering outstanding customer service and whatever this service is – whether onboard one of its ferries or providing online travel insurance – it has to be relevant. We’re looking forward to using our data and technology skills combined with our travel insurance distribution experience to create insurance solutions that will continually evolve to add real value to customers and deliver a sustainable and profitable business for P&O Ferries.”
This new contract is just one in a number of new partnerships that Hood Group has entered into in 2017. Having introduced its travel insurance proposition to the affinity market in 2014, the Group now works with a range of well known brands across a variety of industry sectors and provides competitive insurance cover to thousands of UK travellers.
