Bank of Ireland launches unbeatable home insurance offer

Property owners throughout Ireland now have the opportunity to avail of the best home insurance deal in the country with Bank of Ireland’s new ‘Price Match Promise’. The offer is simple – Bank of Ireland promises not to be beaten on price and if a customer can find a cheaper quote elsewhere for home insurance then they will match the price.

Bank of Ireland’s offer is not only unbeatable in terms of price but also offers one of the best home insurance products available to homeowners in Ireland with higher levels of cover and lower excesses than most available other products. In addition, many of the standard items included under the policy at no extra charge are not included or are charged as extras by most competitors. Bank of Ireland’s home insurance policy offers:

  • Accidental damage as a standard feature and free of charge.
  • Loss of possessions outside the home up to €2.5k included as standard on contents.
  • Standard ‘excess’ on the policy is just €100 – one of the lowest in the market.
  • No charge for paying by monthly instalments – other providers charge up to 24% APR for this facility.
  • Contents replaced on a new for old basis.
  • A quick, simple and hassle free claims process.

Commenting on the launch, Finola O’Donoghue, Marketing Manager, Bank of Ireland Insurance Services, said: “We’ve protected Irish homes for nearly twenty years now offering a high quality product at a great price. Our new ‘Price Match Promise’ is an unbeatable offer not only because the customer gets the best price possible for protecting one of their most important assets but also for the fantastic level of cover they receive for this price that is second to none.

The top two reasons why customers claim are accidental damage and the loss of possessions outside the home. Many customers are choosing cheap policies but find out too late that the wool carpet ruined by a red wine spill or the handbag stolen on a night out is not covered by their policy because they didn’t choose to pay extra for the additional cover. That is why we include these and many other benefits as standard items of cover under our home insurance policy at no extra charge.”

The Bank of Ireland home insurance ‘Price Match Promise’ is available from 1st April 2008 until the 30th June 2008. However, the price match promise will also be guaranteed for six months for any prospective customer who obtains a quotation during the offer period.
