InsuranceBusters.co.uk launched itself recently as a "breath of fresh air in a stuffy industry", targeting IT contractors and those seeking travel, wedding or tax protection insurance.
Founded by an IT contractor and two insurance brokers, the simple-to-use, online service advertises instant quotations and immediate cover on policies including professional indemnity, public liability and employers liability insurance.
Relevant documentation is issued on screen and via e-mail to users across a secure website, and policy purchasers are given 14 days in which to cancel the insurance, should they change their minds.
According to company director Jackie Brett, InsuranceBusters is the first UK, WAP enabled website to deliver insurance quotes and cover directly to users' PCs or WAP phones.
