Hastings Direct, one of the UK's fastest growing insurance providers, has just been voted Car Insurance Provider of the Year for the third year running at the 2015 Consumer Moneyfacts Awards held in London last week.
The winners of the Consumer Moneyfacts Awards are determined by the public, who voted in the autumn of 2014, completing an online survey about their customer service experiences of some of the UK's leading financial brands. 70,000 people voted during the 2015 awards and Hastings Direct scooped the popular vote again, beating many leading household name car insurance providers for the third year in a row.
Hastings Direct, based on the south coast at Bexhill, now has over 1.7 million customers, and is on track to realise its publically stated ambitions to grow to three million customers by 2020.
Gary Hoffman, CEO, Hastings: "Getting such recognition and commendation from the public for a third year in a row is a fantastic achievement and testament to our commitment to providing refreshingly straightforward service to our customers. We work hard to listen to what our customers say and deliver what they want. 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."
