Hastings Direct, one of the UK's fastest growing insurance providers, has just been named Car Insurance Provider of the Year at the prestigious 2014 Consumer Moneyfacts Awards for the second year running.
The winners of the Consumer Moneyfacts Awards are determined by the public, who voted in the autumn of 2013, completing an online survey about their customer service experiences of some of the UK's leading financial brands. 94,000 people voted during the awards and Hastings Direct scooped the popular vote again, beating many leading household name car insurance providers.
Hastings Direct — which has doubled in size in the last three years — now serves 1.4 million customers and plans to double this by 2020.
Gary Hoffman, CEO, Hastings: "Getting such recognition and commendation from the public for a second year in a row means a great deal to us. We have been working hard over the last few years to make sure we really take notice of what our customers say about us and make sure we deliver what they need in a refreshingly straightforward manner. We are delighted to have won again and on behalf of everyone at Hastings I would like to offer a huge thank you to everyone who took the time and trouble to vote for us."
