WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?

KBC Car Insurance

KBC entered an agreement with Bank of Ireland where they would acquire the majority of KBC Bank Ireland’s loan assets and deposits. This Binding Agreement has been approved by the Competition and Consumer Protection Commission and is still subject to ministerial approval. Regardless of the outcome of this agreement KBC have begun the process of exiting the Irish Market.

We want to help you start preparing for any potential future changes and to give you further details on what will or may happen to your account.

What's happening?

Car Insurance products will remain with their current provider – Zurich Insurance.

If you have a Car Insurance policy, this will continue to be underwritten and administered by Zurich Insurance on the same terms and conditions as before.

What do I need to do next?

If you are an existing customer you will shortly receive a booklet which clearly outlines what is happening to all KBC products in detail.

We will issue a separate communication to all Car Insurance customers to provide an update.
