Albany ULR has signed a deal to provide Kwik-Fit Insurance Services' policyholders with a new motor uninsured loss recovery product.

Albany's product will ensure Kwik-Fit's policyholders have unrestricted access to advice and assistance following a no-fault motor accident. The policy will cover legal costs and disbursements if the policyholder has to take action against the responsible party.

It will also offer replacement vehicles, assistance in Europe and accommodation and transport if needed.

The assistance will be accessed through Kwik-Fit's insurance helpline.

The deal was struck as Albany announced plans to relocate its headquarters from Houghton-Le-Spring to Peterlee in January 2002.
