2020 puts digital awards on the map with huge drive in online voting


Quotezone.co.uk, one of the UK’s largest comparison websites, has been announced as headline sponsor of the FirstCar Awards 2021– helping to recognise and reward those companies leading the way for young drivers.  Entries close on 2nd November with online voting open from 16th November.

Filmed from a secret location, the FirstCar Awards 2021 will take place digitally for the first time ever on 19th January 2021 and be broadcast to the public via YouTube.  The eight awards, relevant to new drivers, will have a greater reliance on the online audience to cast their votes, to help choose the winners – reiterating the importance of digital platforms during the pandemic.

FirstCar has been an authoritative voice in the new driver market for over a decade – the awards help guide new drivers when making key purchasing decisions, particularly when buying their first car.

This year’s headline sponsor, Quotezone.co.uk, launched in 2005 to help drivers find better deals on their car insurance.  Now helping over 3 million users compare quotes from more than 110 UK insurance providers, Quotezone.co.uk is one of the country’s leading car insurance comparison sites.

Founder of Quotezone.co.uk, Greg Wilson, comments:  “The FirstCar Awards recognise those companies that are helping young drivers get behind the wheel without breaking the bank, which is why Quotezone.co.uk is the perfect sponsor for these awards.

“With its commitment to helping motorists progress along the journey from learner driver to newly qualified licence holder and then to seasoned motorist, FirstCar can help drivers find the right car for their budget, while Quotezone.co.uk can help them find the right insurance for their new wheels.

“The award ceremony in January will be the first time the event has been held digitally and shines a light on the importance of technology and online voting.  As early pioneers of comparison technology, we appreciate the importance of innovation as enhancements in the digital world make leaps and bounds throughout 2020.  Many of our providers specialise in the latest telematics products – helping young drivers find affordable policies by rewarding them for safe driving.

“Our aim is to bring more transparency to the insurance process by giving the power back to the customer, so they can easily see what is on offer across the market, then choose for themselves what suits them – at a competitive price.  The value of being able to shop around and all from the safety of your own home has never been so important.”
