CHAMPIONS Insurance has joined hands with second largest mobile network operator in the country, NetOne, to bring the first short-term mobile insurance to the public.
Champions’ head of product development, Tapiwa Kahiya, said the new product, Easy Cover, would make it easy for members of the public to insure their assets over the mobile phone.
“Easy Cover is mobile insurance package providing convenient legal and house insurance for NetOne subscribers with a click of a button in the comfort of their homes. The Easy Cover provides highly affordable house and legal insurance policies, where clients can easily access cover from as low as $1,50 per month payable through the One Money platform,” he said.
Kahiya added that the product demystified the myth that insurance is for the well-to-do, as now the marginalised can now afford to insure their property and get legal representation in civil, criminal, labour and criminal cases.
“From as little as $1,50 per month, one gets legal protection for labour, civil and criminal cases and this cover does not have a waiting period. All proud home owners can now insure their houses by a simple click of the button,” Kahiya said.
Champions Insurance managing director, Tambudzai Madzivire, said: “We have simply embraced technology through this strategic partnership in order to bring convenience to our beloved customers.
“We are starting off with house and legal aid insurance policies; however, we are also working on bringing other consumer lines products on to the Easy Cover platform.”
The mobile insurance cover has no waiting period, before subscribers can start enjoying its benefits.
