Wishing you happy motoring in 2024

Wishing you happy motoring in 2024

2023 has been yet another busy and successful year for the Intelligent Motoring team. Indeed, today our Intelligent Motoring brands, including MotorEasy, collectively boast nearly 1 million members. That’s a lot of motorists now enjoying the benefits our car ownership solutions bring.

We kicked off 2023 announcing that AA Ireland has joined our portfolio of clients, and before we knew it, Asda, Arval and Carwow, amongst others, followed suit. It’s hugely exciting to have these market-leading brands join our family, having recognised our expertise in delivering bespoke, innovative partner solutions proven to enhance the vehicle ownership experience for today’s savvy motorist.

And as our client base has grown, so too has the uptake in our range of value-add offerings, particularly Extended Warranty and GAP.  Some challenging market conditions for consumers have largely driven an acceleration of sales. The cost-of-living crisis has seen prudent car owners safeguard against the rising cost of parts and labour with an Extended Warranty, whilst the ever-increasing threat of vehicle theft has seen motorists protect their investment with GAP Insurance.

In fact, earlier this year Auto Express named MotorEasy as its Best Buy GAP Insurance provider, in its 2023 product group test. As the only provider to be awarded a class-leading five out of five-star rating, MotorEasy was particularly cited for its price advantage and quality of cover. This is a huge accolade, recognising the competitive yet comprehensive cover we pride ourselves in offering.

Making a return appearance this year is our Reliability Index. The new and improved top ten rankings are based on analysis of claims data drawn from over 200,000 years’ worth of extended warranty cover, conducted on 44 vehicle manufacturer makes and 300 models. With this volume of vehicles covered by us and passing through our network of workshops, we have a privileged ringside view of vehicle reliability and peoples’ relationships. We are thrilled to extend to you and expect to see even more trends data landing in your inbox in 2024.  

Making a first appearance this year are some new faces in the Intelligent Motoring team. These include Mike Williams who has joined us as Head of Business Development, bringing with him significant experience within the B2C and B2B2C motor warranty and insurance sectors, and Jonathan Anthony as Chief Technology Officer.  Jonathan’s appointment rubber stamps our commitment to future-proofing the innovation for our tech-led motoring platform. If your path has not yet crossed with one or two of our newest team members, it will do very soon.

Indeed, we are extremely excited to again be the headline sponsor of the What Car? Awards, for both 2024 and 2025. If you haven’t got the date in the diary to be at one of the automotive sector’s most exciting nights of the year, there’s still time to get your tickets.  We’d love to see you there!

In the meantime, we’re signing off 2023 wishing you a Happy New Year and a prosperous 2024.
