LONDON, December 8, 2011 -

comparethemarket.com, one of the UK’s leading price comparison sites, is pleased to welcome eSure and Sheilas’ Wheels to its panel for home insurance products.

Both eSure and Sheilas’ Wheels join the home panel following a successful working relationship with comparethemarket.com on its car insurance panel.

Jeremy Moll, Commercial Director at comparethemarket.com said: “We’re delighted that both eSure and Sheilas’ Wheels are joining the comparethemarket.com home insurance panel. Following on from the great deals we’ve provided together on car insurance, we’re confident that we’ll be able to offer customers fantastic savings on their home insurance too.”

Specialising in more than just car insurance, comparethemarket.com provides an easy way to find the right deal on a wide range of insurance and financial products including home insurance, van insurance, bike insurance, life insurance, pet insurance and credit cards.  It also offers comparisons for a range of household utilities including electricity, gas, phone, broadband and digital TV.

About Meerkovo and Simples Rewards

Meerkovo, a small village based just outside of Moscow, is the home of best-selling author and founder of comparethemeerkat.com Aleksandr Orlov.  

Meerkovo is going through troubled times because people in the UK keep confusing comparethemeerkat.com with comparethemarket.com when looking for cheap deals on insurance. This is clogging up the meerkat comparison site, so to try and solve this confusion Aleksandr asked Sergei, his trusty IT assistant, to build Meerkovo.com to provide fans with the opportunity to see Aleksandr’s home village.

Now Aleksandr has launched Simples Rewards, a scheme to reward people who know the difference between meerkat and market.  From 4th July, the meerkats of Meerkovo have been giving everyone who buys car, van, pet and home insurance through comparethemarket.com the chance to claim a free meerkat toy at meerkovo.com.  From 6th October, customers who buy motorbike and life insurance are also eligible to claim a toy.

The range of six toys comprises: Aleksandr; Sergei; Vassily, the pub rocker; Maiya the school mistress; Bogdan, the meerpup; and Yakov, the toymaker.  

The Simples Rewards scheme is subject to terms and conditions.
