Did you know that Hippo.co.za is part of an insurance group that has access to international expertise, which in turn provides a huge benefit to you, the consumer?
Hippo.co.za is part of the Telesure Investment Holdings (TIH) family, which does include insurance brands. However, we're good kids and we play nicely with others... so all leading brands are welcome to hop aboard our comparison platform (in fact, 93% of our partners aren't part of TIH).
This means our customers don't only get great insurance deals online through our trusted partners, but also find unbeatable comparative quotes for a huge variety of services, from Life Insurance and Funeral Cover to Fibre... all at the click of a button. Cool huh?
We respect free speech. It's a democratic right. But the advertising space is hugely competitive, and every advertiser wants your attention, so it's easy to get confused or misled... and it's hard to know who your friends are. Hippo.co.za, as you'll see, is your friend.
These are some more facts:
Simply put, we're a consumer champion. We work for you. We don't work for insurers.
Full disclosure: We don't have all the big brands on our site – not even when it comes to comparing insurance. We'd love to have all the brands join – it would only make comparing better – but they've declined our invite. That does get you thinking about why these brands don't want their prices compared. And it should! Trust and transparency is more important than ever before.
