AXA Assistance UK has extended its trading partnership with insurance broker Insurance Choice by providing misfuelling insurance as part of an enhanced motor breakdown service for its motor insurance portfolio.
The new deal sees AXA Assistance UK include misfuelling insurance as a standard part of the breakdown cover for cars, taxis, mini-buses, couriers and motor homes insured through Insurance Choice. AXA Assistance UK has been providing Insurance Choice motor customers with roadside recovery and homestart services across the UK and Europe since 2010.
Misfuelling insurance covers the costs of draining and removing contaminated fuel either at the roadside or taking the vehicle to the nearest garage. Putting the wrong fuel in a vehicle is one of the most frequent factors behind vehicle breakdowns with around 150,000 UK motorists making the mistake every year.
Paul Moloney, Head of Account Management at AXA Assistance UK, said: “We work hard with our clients to identify opportunities to further enhance our offerings to their customers. Additional elements of cover such as misfuelling insurance provide valuable benefits that respond to real customer need.”
Russell Bence, Head of Retail at Markerstudy Group, which owns Insurance Choice, said: “AXA Assistance UK has demonstrated its commitment to providing our customers with cover to suit them and a high quality service. Building on our partnership in this way means we can ensure our customers have the best experience possible in the event of a claim.”
