VIU partners with HoneyQuote

VIU by HUB (VIU), an integrated insurance brokerage platform, announced a partnership with HoneyQuote , a marketplace for home and condo insurance in Florida. This collaboration offers Floridians more options and expert advice in a market characterized by high rates and limited choices, addressing the urgent need for greater variety and support in securing personal insurance.

The insurance landscape in Florida has become increasingly challenging, with premiums rising more than twice the national average in the last five years and a dwindling number of insurers in the state. This situation has heightened the demand for innovative solutions that provide Floridians with access to a wider range of insurance carriers.

Bryan Davis, EVP and Head of VIU, emphasized that the partnership with HoneyQuote underscores VIU’s dedication to innovating in a difficult market and bridging the insurance protection gap. With many national carriers withdrawing from Florida, VIU and HoneyQuote aim to offer crucial brokerage services to homeowners seeking guidance and tailored insurance solutions.

VIU allows customers to explore, compare, and purchase insurance from various carriers, extending beyond home and condo insurance to include auto, renters, landlord, pet, and life insurance, all supported by expert advice. Freddy Seikaly, CEO of HoneyQuote, highlighted the partnership as a significant step towards making HoneyQuote Florida’s top insurance marketplace, offering a comprehensive range of personal insurance solutions through a streamlined process.

This collaboration between VIU and HoneyQuote represents a strategic effort to meet the critical insurance needs of Floridians, providing a seamless way to access and understand insurance options. VIU’s platform is designed for easy integration with the consumer purchase journey, available through phone, online, and a mobile app, ensuring broad accessibility for customers.
