Virgin Insurance Review
Virgin Insurance Offers
Where there is money Richard Branson won't be far behind! Virgin Insurance has been a great catalyst in shaking up the UK car insurance market which has only just recently fully embraced the internet. With a pulling power which few companies can match, Virgin Insurance is a brand which is instantly recognisable and able to bring the best deals to the table.
Virgin Car Ins Company History
While perhaps best known for Richard Branson who is the founder and majority owner of the company, Virgin Group Limited was only founded back in 1989 although there has been a flurry of activity since then. Originally centred around the music industry, the conglomerate now contains exposure to areas such as finance, insurance, radio, airlines, books, weddings, Virgin cola, health and mobiles to name but a few of the massive range of subsidiary companies.
There is no doubt that the group would not be where they are today if anyone but Richard Branson had been at the helm. The energetic entrepreneur has not slowed down over the years and must have one of the most hectic business lives that anyone has ever had! He seems to be headlining all Virgin launches, both in the UK and overseas, although it is possibly the finance division which is attracting a lot of attention in the UK with a possible bid for troubled UK bank Northern Rock.
The award winning insurance subsidiary was launched in a blaze of glory in May 2004, with the car insurance division headlining the launch with Branson dressing up as Starsky and Hutch from the classic TV series. Few people seem to be able to hog the limelight like Richard Branson, but there is no doubt that he has assisted greatly in increasing the profile of the business.
Other Virgin Insurance Products
If you have not heard of the Virgin brand name then you have either been hiding away for 20 years or in space, such is the exposure which Richard Branson has brought to his Virgin Group. They seem to have exposure in every consumer market in the UK, from finance to insurance, from planes to drink, from cinemas to trains. They have transferred their brand name and reputation over to the UK online car insurance market where they have managed to cross sell to their existing clients and attract new ones. Their money / finance division is now enormous and as such offers both the tradition 3rd party fire & theft, third party insurance and full comprehensive cover, as well as add ons such as breakdown cover, etc.
As you might guess from any venture which includes Richard Branson, branding has never been a problem with the group, with founder Branson attracting attention where ever he goes and whatever he does. There is also a great array of websites online to assist with the many car insurance options available including www.virgin.com, wwwvirgin.com, www.virgininsurance.com, www.virgincarinsurance.com, www.virginmoney.com, www.virgin.co.uk, wwwvirgin.co.uk, www.virgininsurance.co.uk, www.virgincarinsurance.co.uk and www.virginmoney.co.uk.
Virgin Money has been a rumoured bidder for ailing UK Bank Northern Rock, something which shows that they have big plans for the future. Even now they offer the full range of financial services which include Virgin credit cards, Virgin banking, Virgin pensions, Virgin mortgages. The Virgin insurance division also includes car insurance, home insurance, life insurance, travel insurance and pet insurance.
