Hippo specialises in aggregating products and services from leading insurance
providers in South Africa, allowing you to compare them and choose that which
suits you best. It has a very easy to use and useful website that features
comprehensive information on the various insurers and products in the South
African market. There is an easy to use comparison tool that allows you to shop
around and compare quotes, all from a single place.
On the Hippo website you can get a free online quote or compare the offerings of various insurers.
The company has sourced only the best insurance partners to market. Its
roster includes some of the most trusted and recognised names in the various
markets, including the likes of DialDirect, Auto & General, 1st For Women,
Budget Insurance, the Automobile Association and others of the same standing and reputation. The broad categories of insurance covered are car and home
insurance, life insurance, business insurance and medical insurance.
Everything is handled in a central online interface that is quick and
efficient to use. All that you need to do is input your details and then select
your insurance requirements. Once you`ve done this you submit the form and the
online tool scans all the options available and presents you with a neat summary
of the products that would suit you, along with quotes for each. Shopping around
for insurance could hardly be easier - you can just imagine the amount of time
you`ll save using a tool like this.
Hippo is run by Financial Services (Pty) Ltd, and is the brainchild of
directors who have long-standing experience in the South African insurance
trade. It`s a fully licensed financial services provider, with full compliance
and is a subscriber to the FAIS General Code of Conduct.
In addition to the quote generation service, there is also a knowledge base
of insurance tips and information available to all on the company website. But
the meat on the bone remains the quotation service, and nothing is allowed to
detract from that. It`s almost Google-like in its simplicity - there`s no
clutter for you to wade through - it`s slick, easy to use and quick.
