National Bank Insurance offers new online purchasing of car insurance

Montreal, 15 November 2007 - 

In order to better meet the needs of its clients, National Bank Insurance has a new user-friendly website, www.insurance.nbc.ca, which allows clients to purchase their car insurance online.

For a limited time, clients who purchase car insurance through the website will benefit from a rebate of $100 in addition to the company’s usual competitive rates and rebates for clients with a clean driving record and those who reduce the distance they drive per year.

The new website also allows users to request a quote for home insurance and enables clients to make changes to their file in the new section “Client Zone.” The information available in other new sections, including “Frequently Asked Questions,” “Questions and Testimonials,” “Promotions and Special Offers” and “Information Capsules” enables clients to make more informed decisions when choosing insurance products adapted to their needs.
