UNITED KINGDOM: Aviva Signs Deal with Tesco Bank
January 17, 2013

Aviva Insurance, which recently partnered with Belron® subsidiary Autoglass®, has announced its three-year agreement with Tesco Bank, the insurance distribution arm of global supermarket chain Tesco, to provide auto insurance to Tesco customers.

According to its release, Aviva says, "The deal will see Aviva join a small panel of existing insurers to offer motor insurance through Tesco Bank, who currently provides car insurance to over one million customers." Claims services will be provided through Aviva's personal motor Center of Excellence in Stretford.

Janice Deakin, intermediary and partnerships director at Aviva, says, "We are delighted to be extending our relationship with Tesco Bank to offer motor insurance. This deal further strengthens our relationship with Tesco Bank, following the announcement last year that Aviva would also be providing life protection products, including life insurance and critical illness cover. Tesco shares our customer-centric values and carries clear brand strength that together will deliver real value to our partnership and to Tesco customers."

Gary Davess, director of insurance at Tesco Bank says, "Partnering with Aviva will help us offer competitive prices to more Tesco customers and at the same time provide access to quality motor insurance from one of the UK's largest providers."

In October Tesco Underwriting announced its partnership with National Windscreens, an Autoglass competitor, naming the company as its preferred auto glass repair and replacement provider for its insurance customers.
