Checkers adds pet insurance to its growing financial services bouquet

| Supplier news

Checkers customers can now insure their pets from R89 a month with an exclusive insurance product created specifically for them.

Insurance options range from R89 to R245 a month depending on whether it is accidental cover for injuries, core cover for injuries, illnesses and vet visits and comprehensive cover covering accidents, vet visits and routine care such as vaccines, sterilisation, dental scaling and deworming.

Checkers Pet Insurance includes:

       A competitive flat rate fee and no waiting period

       A fast, paperless claims process

       Fixed excess regardless of claim

       Multi-pet discounts

Pet insurance is one of a growing number of financial services innovations from the Shoprite Group. The product is underwritten by OUTsurance, which also partnered with the Group earlier this year when it became the first supermarket retailer to offer an OUTbonus on funeral policies.

This, along with other innovations, is in line with the Group’s commitment to put customers first and make shopping more convenient, and to focus on future-fit channels as it rolls out new products and services.

These include QR payments - another first to market, where shoppers can pay for groceries with their phones - and the new Money Market Account - a free transactional account which can be used to pay bills, buy airtime, data and savings stamps as well as to send and receive money.

The Group continues to look for new fintech innovations in line with global trends, but always with a keen focus on what its customers want. It plans to announce additional product launches before the end of the year.
