be high due to the popularity of the meerkat advertising campaign.
 ”We wanted to give something back to our customers.
 Aleksandr has been a real favourite with consumers since the
campaign began, he has nearly 800,000 Facebook fans and his book
sold around half a million copies last Christmas.   So we

claim their reward from one of six meerkat toys.    The
range features the original characters - Aleksandr and Sergei - as

The scheme is being promoted by a major advertising campaign on
TV, radio, cinema, outdoor and online.  The campaign features
Aleksandr and Segei visiting the UK for the first time to deliver
the toys to reward customers who know the difference between

lead to an increase in insurance prices, which are set by
individual insurers.”
