A new price comparison website aimed at helping serving and former military personnel to find competitively priced insurance products, Forces Compare, has been launched, becoming the very first military price comparison site in the UK.
The company, Forces Compare, was founded and is run by ex-serving members of HM Armed Forces. It’s founder, ex-para Alfie Usher decided to create the company after finding that there weren’t any insurance comparison websites for those in the military, and came up with the idea of ‘using other veteran-owned companies via the “veteran-owned” network to support the community’.
Usher wanted to create a comparison site that meant that “regardless of being the CGS or a soldier joining AFC you’d have a platform you could utilise to match your insurance needs”.
Forces Compare has certainly achieved this, specifically working with highly reputable, military insurance specialists that users can browse, accessing hundreds of quotes on: military contents, travel, bike, motor, pet, military kit and personal accident insurance, all through completing one single form online.
Describing themselves, the organisation highlight that they are an independent search engine that specialises in comparing the best possible insurance for a users requirements, from a select group of highly reputable, military insurance specialists.
Military insurance is not the only thing Forces Compare offer either, the organisation also has a history helping to provide serving soldiers and veterans with legal claims such as MOD housing claims, MOD legal services and military tax refunds. The startup also works with motor finance providers and military mortgage brokers, and will soon be offering the option of comparing military savings accounts and ISAs.
The organisation was founded and is run by ex-serving members of HM Armed Forces and is based in Bristol.
