Henley-On-Thames, UK Quotiva Network's taxi insurance comparison site has bucked the trend and grown considerably in the first weeks of 2009.
Launched in 2007, the Quotiva Insurance Network connects buyers of niche insurance with the specialist UK brokers who can supply it and has experienced consistent quarterly growth with the first quarter of this year doubling in size over the same period last year.
One area of success in particular is for private hire insurance or public hire insurance drivers.
"We realised that the driver searching for taxi insurance is faced with hundreds of different websites and forms to fill in. Often they are shopping at odd times and can't call an office."
"By offering a service that connects taxi drivers directly with carefully chosen specialist taxi insurance brokers from a single point we are able to simplify the purchasing process for everyone involved. It's all about tailoring our service to the taxi driver and the broker, saving time and effort on behalf of both."
Insurers and brokers often have areas of expertise that fall outside of just local discounts for walk in business. By putting a private hire taxi driver from Manchester in touch with a broker from Brighton for example, the Quotiva Network helps to remove inefficiencies in the market.
The insurance aggregator market is dominated by high volume, standard product business -- private car, household and travel for example. Instead of forcing prospects with specialist requirements into comparison engines that really aren't designed for their type of enquiry, the Quotiva Network carefully tailors its service to each requirement. The same is true on the broker side -- if a broker knows he has the best rates for drivers with a specific profile he can filter out all other requests making the introduction process as accurate as possible and guided by humans rather than just computerised rules.
It's this attention to detail that has pushed the Quotiva Network to the forefront of the niche insurance comparison market, covering not only taxi insurance, but also minibus insurance, chauffeur insurance and taxi fleet insurance among many other niche classes of business.
