Alex Clifford, Product and Proposition Lead at British Gas, said:

“At British Gas we always strive to deliver the best possible product and proposition for our customers and we’re delighted to have been recognised for this again through the Moneyfacts star ratings. The star ratings resonate very well with our customers, particularly in a complex insurance market with many providers, products and cover levels. The Moneyfacts ratings offer our customers peace of mind that they are choosing a product which has been externally reviewed and benchmarked against competitors in the market.”

Hayley Hutchinson, Senior Customer Proposition and Experience Manager at MORE TH>N, said:

“After being a Moneyfacts Five-Star rated insurer for six years running, we believe that this accreditation helps to give prospective customers greater confidence that our product is of a high standard. It is a third party endorsement, based on independent product analysis conducted by the Moneyfacts team, that provides further proof to customers that we put them at the heart of what we do.”

Samantha Owens, Star Ratings and Personal Finance Analytics Manager at Moneyfacts, said:

“With flexible working becoming a way of life for many, ensuring consumers have the correct cover for both the building and its contents is essential. In addition, with more relying on the home ensuring that repairs to essential services are quick and stress-free has also become more important. Insurance for these can offer peace of mind that any sudden financial shocks will be mitigated when things go wrong.

“The Moneyfacts Annual Star Ratings for both home insurance and home emergency cover look at all the product features available and rate them based on the levels of cover available, along with the most comprehensive range of features. The Annual Star Ratings allow customers searching for the best product to focus their attention on those that stand out from the rest of the market, making tailoring their search easier.”
