Budget Insurance wins Customer Service Award!

Budget Insurance wins Customer Service Award!

Budget Insurance has been awarded a 'People's Choice' Award at the Institute of Customer Service's 2012 awards event.

The People's Choice Awards are based on the views of 26,000 UK consumers, which form the basis of the UK Customer Satisfaction Index. This respected consumer index asks respondents to rate their satisfaction with the service they receive from UK organisations. It has been running for more than four years and reports its findings twice a year.

A spokesperson for Budget Insurance said: "It is extremely gratifying to receive this award. While customer care has always been very important to the Budget brand, over the last 12 months we have invested significantly in all aspects of the customer service we deliver. We have already been rewarded with greater customer loyalty, but it is a fantastic boost to the team to be given a national award recognising how far we have come."
