Following extensive market research and customer feedback, Allianz Insurance has refreshed its motor fleet products to provide customers with new covers, enhanced limits and access to additional risk management services.
Now available for any policies incepting or renewing on, or after, 1st June, the revamped products are available for small fleets (4-14 vehicles) and larger fleets of 15 or more vehicles. Traded through the Allianz branch network they’re supported by Allianz’s dedicated motor claims team and approved repairer network.
Going beyond the traditional insurance offering, customers also gain access to a wide range of services including risk management guidance, business and legal helplines and discounted services from preferred suppliers.
Recognising the increasing use of risk management technology in fleets, businesses will now have cover for in-vehicle safety technology such as dashcams. Other new features include cover for misfuelling and child seats, as well as pay-on-use breakdown.
Enhancement limits include:
- Third party property damage – caused by vehicles other than private cars £10m (previously £5m)
- Replacement locks – unlimited cover if vehicle keys have been lost or stolen (previously £1,000)
- Personal accident – £10,000 indemnity per incident (previously £5,000)
The refresh also launches Allianz’s partnership with DriveTech, part of the AA, giving customers access to discounts on various risk management services, including online and on-road driver assessments and training. In addition to traditional solutions, DriveTech’s visionary approach to technology provides Allianz customers with the opportunity to gain a better understanding of their telematics data and how advancements in technology can help them operate their fleets more efficiently – driving costs down.
Jonathan Dye, head of motor insurance, commented: “Our motor fleet products are underwritten by award-winning technical experts and are traded through our nationwide branch network. This means we can deliver local market knowledge and build long-term relationships with our brokers. We’ve listened to our customers and believe the enhancements we’ve made to our products demonstrate the importance of this class of business to us and our commitment to delivering a market-leading broker and customer experience.”
