Kwik.insure provides car insurance via GCash – BusinessWorld On-line
INSURANCE PLATFORM Kwik.insure is partnering with GCash to enable car owners to purchase policies through the financial technology platform.
According to Kwik.insure, car owners can take out mandatory liability and fully comprehensive insurance through GCash.
"Car ownership is increasing here in the country and that has motivated us to continue helping Filipinos to ensure their road safety," said Hamilton Angluben, Chief Executive Officer of Kwik.insure, in a press release on Sunday.
The service can be accessed through GInsure in the GCash mobile application.
"After clicking on their preferred insurance policy, all they have to do is provide the full details of their vehicle to see all of the options," said Kwik.insure.
The insurance technology startup launched its online platform earlier this year, allowing users to obtain e-policies directly from insurance companies.
GCash President and Chief Executive Officer said the new partnership is in line with the company's goal of democratizing financial services.
