Ripe celebrates double win at 2023 Insurance Choice Awards

Ripe is celebrating following double success at the 2023 Insurance Choice Awards this week, the winners of which are based exclusively on customer votes. 

The UK insurtech took home two highly competitive headline awards - Best Big Insurance Company for Ripe Insurance and Treating Customers Fairly Champion for its specialist boat insurance product, Insure4Boats. Both are based on having the highest combined customer scores across all other categories to provide an overall winner. 

The Insurance Choice Awards were launched by Smart Money People in 2016 to help customers find quality insurance providers to do business with. Winners are determined by asking customers to vote for their favourite product provider by leaving them a rating and a review. Smart Money People also asks the customer to rate customer service, NPS, value for money and whether they felt fairly treated. 

This is the fifth consecutive year that Ripe has seen success at the ceremony. 

John Woosey, Founder of Ripe, commented: “We’re absolutely delighted to have won these two awards, particularly given that they are voted for by our customers. Our team works hard year-round to deliver excellent products and unbeatable service to our 350,000 strong policyholder base, so to be recognised by them in this way is fantastic. Thank you to everyone who voted and here’s to another great year!” 

Jacqueline Dewey, CEO of Smart Money People said: “Winning one of the most competitive categories in the Insurance Choice Awards, Ripe Insurance has truly proved its value to its customers. Across its many divisions, customers have referenced the company’s level of communication and competitive pricing. A well-deserved win. 

“Insure4Boats reviews, meanwhile, praise the company’s friendly and helpful customer service team, citing incredible attention to detail with every individual case, which is an important value for an insurance provider. Many customers have also expressed gratitude for the level of support they have received from Insure4Boats throughout the claims process, showing just how fairly the insurer treats its customers. Congratulations to Ripe!”
