Alfie Usher is an ex-para who served in Afghanistan twice, and is recently the founder of fintech startup Forces Compare.
After his service, Usher realised that there were no insurance comparison sites for ex-military members, and so decided to take matters into his own hands, launching his very own insurance comparison site Forces Compare.
Forces Compare is the very first insurance comparison site of its kind, a comparison platform built for ex-serving members of the Armed Forces to compare insurance policies. The site has been created so that “regardless of being the CGS or a soldier joining AFC you’d have a platform you could utilise to match your insurance needs”.
The online platform provides its customers the opportunity to compare a range of different insurance covers that are made specifically for those who once served in the forces. Partnering up with the insurance comparison experts Quotezone, those who are ex-military can now compare hundreds of quotes by completing a quick and simple form.
Forces Compare offers comparison on such relevant policies as Military Personal Accident Insurance, Military Travel Insurance, Military Contents Insurance, and Military Kit Insurance. In addition to these policies, the site also compares car insurance, bike insurance and even home insurance.
As well as providing comparisons on a range of different insurance covers, the site also offers help to customers with legal claims. Forces Compare’s professional partners can assist with following legal claims: MOD legal services, MOD housing claims, flight delay claims, military tax refunds, and payday loan refunds. In future, the business plans to start offering personal loans, bank accounts and credit cards to its customers.
At present the site only caters to those who were once part of the armed forces, but Usher has plans for Forces Compare and wants to branch out and help other people serving the country in a variety of different ways, such as the navy, the police, nurses and people who work in the public sector.
