We must admit here at TheCork.ie that we don’t know much about KBC Bank.
Honestly, if you asked us to name banks we would have said.
- Bank of Ireland
- Permament TSB
- and then stopped!
But KBC Bank, in fairness, do have a branch in the City Centre, plus they are one of the few banks that organise events beyond the business to business sector. Belgian owned KBC started opening branches in 2012.
KBC Bank has today announced it will host Insurance Clinics at its ‘Cork hub’ (i.e. branch -Ed) starting from 23rd – 28th March during a dedicated Insurance Week event to help customers with all aspects of Home and Life insurance. For customers who call into the hub on Lapp’s Quay or make an appointment, the KBC ‘team’ will be on hand to discuss customers’ Home or Life insurance requirements in the context of their overall personal finance needs.
Below is information from KBC.
KBC is also offering to beat customers’ existing Home Insurance quotes on like-for-like cover with the promise of a €75 One4All Gift Voucher in the event that a quote can’t be beaten and customers take out new home insurance with KBC.*
Sean Michael Collins, KBC’s Hub Manager in Cork said: “KBC’s Insurance Week is about encouraging customers to take the time to really focus on their home and life insurance needs. No one likes to think of something going wrong, but in the event that it does, having the appropriate insurance cover in place means peace of mind for customers and their home.
Our specialist team in Cork is here to help customers who are thinking about renewing an existing policy, want to reassess their cover, or simply have a question to ask and need a helping hand to make a more informed decision. KBC offers high quality insurance at seriously competitive rates and I’d encourage customers to call into the hub, make an appointment and see how KBC can help.”
KBC’s Home Insurance cover includes a host of benefits such as a 24/7 Home Emergency Helpline, public liability cover up to €3million, and 0% APR on direct debit options with no additional charge for customers who choose monthly payments.
KBC is also currently offering 50% off Home Insurance for the first year of new residential mortgages, i.e. for first time buyers, movers and switchers until 31st December 2015.** This is in addition to bonus interest rates on savings, discounts on residential fixed or variable mortgages and discounted personal loan rates for customers who open a new KBC current account.
