New online comparison website offers a fresh new way to shop for
insurance, saving customers an average $200 on car insurance
WINDSOR, ON, July 10, 2012 /CNW/ - Although the cost of running a car
and maintaining a home continue to soar, Ontario residents are finally
getting a much-needed break with the launch of InsuranceHunter.ca, a no-hassle, online car and home insurance comparison website. The
site provides consumers with three competitive quotes in three minutes,
followed by a personal call from a qualified insurance hunter. Since
the site launched, 70 per cent of its customers have reported making
savings of up to $400 on their annual premium, some saving more.
"We created this unique way to buy insurance for today's time-starved,
deal-focused customer who is seeking control, simplicity and savings,"
says Gail Robertson, Manager, Public Relations, Insurance Hunter.
"Insurance Hunter is an industry leading site that offers the freedom
and ease of shopping from home, combined with quick, helpful advice
from a qualified insurance broker. We're the fastest way to get
multiple car and home insurance quotes online and our customers tell us
they're delighted with the time and money they're saving."
Anyone from Ontario searching for car or home insurance or to get a
better deal just has to visit InsuranceHunter.ca and answer a few simple questions. The website uses its
industry-leading quote comparison technology to hunt the market and
within seconds returns the three best available quotes. Once the
customer selects a quote, a "hunter" (licensed insurance broker)
follows up by phone to provide straight-shooting personal advice to
help the customer choose the best coverage, and deal, for their needs.
Tens of thousands of Ontario drivers have already received three quotes
in three minutes from Insurance Hunter, and nine out of 10 customers
say they would recommend the site to friends and family.
Hunting for deals that put money back in our customers' pockets
Unlike direct insurance websites which only offer a single company's
product, Insurance Hunter hunts the market to find the best deal from a
panel of competing insurers who can offer competitive prices.
Additionally, when the insurance "hunter" follows up by phone they are
often able to secure further savings. The result is extra money in our

the most competitive coverage from the convenience of their home,
without a heavy sales pitch," says Robertson.
Hassle free experience
