Durham-based reverse-auction marketplace honcho has launched a partnership with leading employee benefits firm Personal Group to provide insurance services to more than 475,000 UK workers.
More than 600 organisations, including Network Rail, DHL and Stagecoach, provide Personal Group’s Hapi app for their employees. It aggregates employee benefits from multiple third parties into the Hapi app.
Users of the Hapi app have now got direct entry to honcho’s car insurance platform, giving them access to car insurance from more than 19 car insurance providers, with policies available from Aviva, Axa, Ageas and Zurich.
Frank Speight, commercial director at honcho, said: “We are delighted to launch our partnership with Personal Group. Through their Hapi app, hundreds of thousands of employees across the UK are already accessing great deals from all manner of providers, and we think it’s just right that they are now able to directly access the refreshing new world of honesty, transparency and fairness that honcho is bringing to car insurance.”
Ashley Doody, Chief Product Officer of Personal Group, added: “As a technologist I love disruptive and innovative products. So, I am delighted to welcome honcho onto our Hapi platform. We are always searching for new providers to widen our offering to clients. Financial wellbeing is key to overall wellbeing and, let’s face it, everyone likes to get a great deal.”
Durham-based honcho launched into the car insurance market in autumn 2019 with a mission of bringing transparency to car insurance shopping. The platform helps consumers find the insurance cover that meets their needs, with insurance providers bidding against each other with ever-lowering prices in real time.
