lovemoney.com Readers Vote swiftcover.com Best Value for Money Car Insurer at 2012 Awards

LONDON, November 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Online insurance provider, swiftcover.com, has been voted Best Value for Money Car Insurer for the third year running at the 2012 lovemoney.com Awards.

Established in 2009, lovemoney.com began as a way to help people build a better relationship with their money through personalised online money management. The lovemoney.com Awards, now in their third year, are voted for by the site's own savvy visitors and include hundreds of personal finance products, spanning insurance, current accounts, savings and credit cards.

Amanda Edwards, head of marketing at swiftcover.com, says: "Keeping costs down is especially challenging given the problems which face the car insurance industry at the moment, so it's great to see that consumers recognise the efforts we go to in order to ensure that premiums remain as low as possible.

"Being an online-only insurer means that our customers are able to get a quote or organise their policy easily and without having to go through a call centre. This helps us to keep costs down, providing savings which we can pass on to our policy holders."
