Ageas UK and Volkswagen Financial Services enter new insurance partnership

Insurance policy and car key

Ageas UK and Volkswagen Financial Services (UK) have entered into an agreement that will see customers buying an Audi, Volkswagen, Skoda, Seat or Volkswagen Commercial Vehicle within the Group’s retailer network benefiting from a motor insurance proposition from April 2015.

Under the agreement, Ageas will underwrite the proposition alongside a selected panel of insurers which it will also manage.

Volkswagen Financial Services (VWFS) is part of the global Volkswagen motor group which sells around 500,000 vehicles each year in the UK. 

The VWFS portfolio of services include dealer and customer financing, leasing, banking and insurance activities, fleet management and mobility offerings. 

Robert Cottrell, head of insurance for UK market and international development at VWFS, said: “We are really pleased to be partnering with Ageas on our new motor insurance proposition.

"This is the start of many exciting changes planned within the VWFS insurance area for 2015 strengthening the link between the retailer network, our customers and our brands; further demonstrating our continuing commitment to focus on putting customers at the heart of our business.”

The Volkswagen deal follows a number of other Ageas partnerships confirmed recently, including the extension of the Tesco Underwriting and John Lewis relationships and a new strategic partnership with Virgin Money which will also be launched in 2015.
