DPG Media launches insurance website Independer in Belgium
DPG Media launched Independer.be, an independent online insurance broker, in Belgium on Monday, 18 January 2020. Private individuals can take out the cheapest car insurance policy for their situation after comparing prices and coverages on the website. The range of insurance products on offer will be expanded later this year. Independer.be is part of the DPG Media Group, which is prominent in Belgium and the Netherlands with regard to media and online services.
Bernard Soens, General Manager of Independer in Belgium: “The concept of Independer.be is simple, transparent and accessible for everyone. Clients can compare the content of policies and the price of premiums online in a very efficient manner. In most cases, those who wish to take out insurance can do so with a few clicks of the mouse. Clients who need more assistance can rely on our experts. They are always available to offer clients advice over the phone, via WhatsApp or e-mail."
Independent advisor and excellent cooperation
Independer.be has the ambition to make the Belgian insurance market more transparent and accessible for every consumer. Not only can clients compare the prices of insurance policies quickly and easily, they can also rely on independent advice and mediation, both when taking out a policy and, if needed, in the event of damage.
Three leading insurance companies collaborate with Independer.be: Corona Direct, Ethias and Yuzzu. Other companies are in the pipeline. When selecting insurers, Independer.be takes the product range and service of the insurer into account. Partners that combine competitive prices with high-quality offerings qualify.
