Zoom.co.uk Teams Up with Ohio for Insurance Deals

UK shopping portal Zoom.co.uk has entered an exclusive partnership with Ohio.co.uk to provide users with access to quotes on travel, car, and household insurance.

Ohio will also provide financial services such as ISAs and life assurance, 24 hours a day online.

"In today's climate of fierce competition, the personal finance market has become increasingly complex and confusing for the consumer," said Eva Pascoe, managing director, Zoom.co.uk.

"People just don't have the time to hunt around the high street for the best offers and more importantly do not realise they could get a better deal. Ohio on Zoom will save people time and will help them evaluate the options available to them at the click of a button."

Ohio.co.uk is part of the Oughtred and Harrison Group of companies, originally founded in 1919. The firm has seven subsidiaries operating from 33 different locations.

"Whether you are planning on travelling for a year or buying the car you've always wanted, trying to sort out your personal finance can be a nightmare," said John Harris, managing director, Ohio.co.uk.

"Ohio cuts through these complexities and as our services develop, we will give Zoom shoppers as much access and transparency as we can when it comes to researching and selecting insurance and finance products."

The travel insurance facilities are already available via the Zoom site, with motor and household insurance becoming available to Zoom customers by the end of the year.
