Groupama Insurances has reached an agreement whereby it will become the sole underwriter of motorcycle policies sold via eBike, the online motorbike insurance provider.
The deal will see 34,000 live motorbike policies shift from Southern Rock, the present underwriter of eBike, to Groupama by the end of 2012.
Customers of eBike, part of Brightside Group, have the ability to get quotes and alter policies online, enhancing the control policyholders enjoy.
Motorcycle Development Underwriter for Groupama Insurances Ian Pritchard said that Groupama and eBike had significant synergies, adding that the move strengthened Groupama’s position as one of the country’s leading motorcycle insurers.
Chairman of Brightside Broking and Head of Insurer Relationships Martyn Holman said that the move promised a great partnership with Groupama.
