FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
QuickQuote.com, recently named "Forbes Favorite" life insurance Web site, has partnered with another Forbes Favorite, Worldnews.com, to provide insurance-related products and services to its new Insurance Cover section.
According to QuickQuote.com President Daniel P. Wager, "the addition of QuickQuote to the Worldnews Network is designed to provide its visitors with easy access to thousands of insurance plans including term life, individual health, fixed annuities, travel health insurance, international health insurance, auto insurance and mortgage rates.
Companies choose to feature QuickQuote.com on their Web sites because we represent only the top-rated insurance carriers in the U.S.; we offer a comprehensive online library of educational resources and we employ insurance professionals instead of telemarketers -- providing the highest level of customer service," Wager added.
Wyoming-based Worldnews.com is an independent multilingual news portal that went online in April 1999. Powered by a unique news search engine, Worldnews uses over 200 online news sources in 14 languages and presents them in categories ordered by topic and geography.
QuickQuote.com, based in northern Nevada, was the Internet's first interactive, insurance marketplace originating in July 1995. The Web site's fast and simple application process offers a wide selection of instant life and health insurance quotes from better-rated carriers and provides a side-by-side comparison of the insurers and each policy's particular features. QuickQuote Financial Inc., and its parent company, QuickQuote Systems, Inc., are part of the international financial services institution, ING Group, of Dutch origin, which is active in the fields of banking, insurance and asset management in more than 65 countries.
