NCI strikes pet insurance partnership with Aviva amid growth plans

Aviva has entered into an agreement with NCI Group to underwrite its pet insurance policies.

The partnership fits with NCI’s strategy to significantly grow its pet insurance business, with the deal meaning Aviva will underwrite NCI’s current lifetime product range for dogs, cats and rabbits.

Neil Richards-Smith, managing director and co-founder of NCI, said: “We have a mutual ambition to seriously increase our pet insurance book over the coming years and this deal is a major part of our ongoing strategy for growth. Aviva is one of the best-known and respected brands in insurance and we are delighted to be working closely with them. This deal is a significant win for everyone at NCI and is a testament to the quality and commitment of my colleagues.

“Aviva, like NCI are all about the customer and the service we provide is second to none, so it should be a partnership with a long and happy future. We are very excited about the new partnership and look forward to working with Aviva on this rather special project.”

Brian Spinks, head of new business at Aviva, added: “Aviva is extremely pleased to have secured this partnership with NCI, a recognised and well established UK pet specialist. This significant deal provides fantastic cover for our customers and expands Aviva’s presence further into the ever growing UK pet market.”

NCI was established in 2000 and provides pet, car and home insurance, as well as vehicle breakdown cover through its Rescuemycar brand.

It operates a 24/7 call centre in its Harrogate head office providing a variety of UK and Europe wide claims services. The claims services include vehicle breakdown, pet, motor and key assistance for their own and third party clients.
