Fortis Insurance was formed in 1990 following the merger between Bishopsgate Insurance Ltd and Northern Star Insurance Company Limited. The experience of these two established companies together created a major player in the UK insurance scene and Fortis has gone on to receive many awards for their products and services. In 2005 alone, Fortis Insurance were awarded with the Motor Insurer of the Year Accolade as well as The Claims Award by The Insurance Times and a glance at their website will reveal many other awards and accolades in previous years.
Fortis do not offer any of their policies direct to the consumer, instead all policies must be purchased through a broker. Fortis believe that this gives the consumer the best possible service and therefore consumers get the right policy for their needs and the insurance company gets the type of clients that they are looking for in order to maintain low costs. Fortis offer insurance policies for cars and vans up to 3.5 tonnes and a list of the most frequently asked questions relating to the policies can be found on their website in the products section. The information given is extremely clear and helpful and ensures that you know as much about your policy as you will probably ever need to. Useful information such as what to look for in a windscreen crack is freely available on the website so even if you decide not to take out a Fortis Insurance policy it is well worth looking at.
