Castle Cover the Over 50s Insurer Outlines Benefits of Buying House Insurance Policies Online

POOLE, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Sept. 29, 2009) - Castle Cover, one of the U.K's leading providers of house insurance cover to the over 50s, have announced a host of benefits for customers purchasing policies online.

The company's website,, has been specially designed for the firm's targeted demographic of silver surfers, a group which is increasingly involved in internet usage. An additional feature of this site is that it has the facility to search Castle Cover's panel of insurers to allow users to compare quotes.

Buying an insurance policy online can have benefits in itself no matter which broker you choose such as:

Cost Savings - Online brokers often use a pool of insurers, rather than just one, which means they are free to deliver the most competitive quotes.

Niche Exclusivity - Certain online insurers cater for specialist requirements in a particular age group or for those with specialist circumstances.

Open 24-7 - Unlike a traditional insurance broker. An online website can deliver quotes online 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Ease of Use - Most online websites are designed to be as easy as possible to use offering online quote forms to enter data into.

Whilst these are all benefits of all insurers on the Internet Castle Cover can also provide the following benefits within this niche insurance market:

A Leading Insurer Panel - Castle Cover offers cover from some of the world's foremost insurance companies, including AXA, Aviva and RSA

Exclusive to over 50s - Castle Cover deals exclusively with the over 50s, which means they know how to deal with the specialist requirements of this age group, and can deliver the most appropriate policies to users.

Backed by a U.K call centre - Unlike many insurance companies, Castle Cover are committed to offering professionally staffed U.K sales and customer services teams, who are on hand to deal with all customer enquiries.

Based in Poole, Dorset, Castle Cover has been providing specialist motor and home insurance cover to the over-fifties for over 3 years. With over 200,000 policy holders, they are currently the third-largest insurer in this market.
