KBC wins the Best Value Current Account, Best Value First-time Buyer Mortgage and Best Value Switcher Mortgage categories

KBC Bank Ireland has been awarded the Best Value Current Account, Best Value First-time Buyer Mortgage and Best Value Switcher Mortgage at the inaugural bonkers.ie Awards. KBC was the only bank to win three awards at the ceremony in Dublin’s Mansion House last night, beating off stiff competition from other financial competitors. It scooped all three award categories it was nominated in.

KBC Bank Ireland’s Director of Products, Darragh Lennon, said: “We are delighted to receive these awards which acknowledge that KBC offers best value to consumers across our range of products. Our First Time Buyer Mortgage proposition was awarded for offering best life time value over the term of a customer’s mortgage and using a ‘no gimmicks’ approach. Our Switcher Mortgage was recognised for providing great long term value and real benefits to a customer when switching mortgage from another provider and, finally, our Extra Current Account was awarded for rewarding customers with a range of benefits and value across our suite of products as well as being the only bank to offer both Apple and Android Pay.

“At KBC our strategy is to provide great long-term value and build lifelong partnerships with our customers. These awards truly recognise and credit our value proposition, which we will continue to deliver as we grow in Ireland.”

Bonkers.ie, an independent price comparison website, celebrate excellence in customer value across 13 unique awards categories including banking, utilities, energy suppliers, broadband and TV suppliers. The inaugural awards recognised the quality, choice, and particularly the value of the products and services now available to Irish households. The number of consumers shopping around for better value has increased by 33% in the last year and bonkers.ie is set up to offer an independent price comparison website for the market.
