Warranty deal extended

Allianz Worldwide Partners UK has signed a new five-year contract to continue providing extended warranty cover to BMW, MINI, and BMW Motorrad customers in the UK and Republic of Ireland.

The contract renewal builds on a relationship spanning more than 37 years, a relationship that sees BMW customers and retailers at the heart of this product offering.

Steve Cann, general manager, Insurance Solutions at BMW Group Financial Services, said, ‘The exacting and high expectations our customers have of all BMW Group products means that our Insured Warranty product must deliver both value for money and unparalleled levels of protection.

‘Warranties must also recognize changing vehicle technologies such as electric cars, as well as customer demands for simplified solutions that enable them to continue their lives with minimum interruption. Allianz Worldwide Partners has continually met our expectations and we are excited with future product and online developments that we are collaborating on.’

Liz Grindell, head of warranty at Allianz Global Assistance in the UK, added, ‘Our focus on product development and innovative digital marketing, combined with exemplary customer and BMW Retailer network service delivery, remains at the core of our service. We’re excited at the prospect of further collaboration with BMW Financial Services to continue this ethos over the coming years.’
