Choose a Good Insurance Company in Europe
How find a Good Insurance Company throughout Europe? Some Tips
1- Find the right coverage First, it’s important to gather information about the right coverage, and obtain insurance quotes from, a variety of insurers as part of your overall selection process. In order to do that, begin by determining the type of coverage you need in order to make a right comparison across multiple companies.
Now it’s time to research the types of insurers from which to obtain that coverage.
2- Check License Status Insurers must be licensed by the country in which they sell insurance. For added peace of mind, be sure you’re buying coverage from a licensed provider in your area by checking with the department of nsuring of your Country, either online or by phone.
3- Check financial stability Finding out the financial stability of an insurer. One can research a provider’s insurance financial strength ratings, on the websites of companies such as A.M. Best, Standard & Poor’s, Moody’s or Fitch. While most of the major underwriters are safe bets, this is especially helpful when considering smaller, lesser-known providers.
4- Customer service and claims support Check consumer complaint ratios. Many departments of insurance websites publish consumer complaint ratios for the insurance providers. A consumer complaint ratio tells you how many complaints an insurer received for every 1,000 claims its policyholders filed. It’s also a good idea to check a company’s complaint ratios in several other countries since a company might have great ratings in one, but not-so-great ratings in another. For added protection, look for companies with low consumer complaint ratios in a variety of countries. Locate the insurers you trust
