PocketSafe is an insurance comparison engine based out of Mumbai. The idea behind PocketSafe is to make insurance search very easy, without the hassle of filling up long forms, and that it is doing very well.
PocketSafe currently offers health and travel insurance from 14 companies. They have direct tie-up with all the listed companies and are currently closing the transactions offline (Mumbai only). They have plans to offer online payments and also list 10 more financial products in near future.
The site is very minimalistic and has a certain personality to itself. Not something one would see in any other financial products sites. As i said before, they do not ask for my personal details for simply showing a comparison. While all the biggies like PolicyBazaar etc. are in the business of passing on leads into their national network, it would be nice to see if PocketSafe can save its pocket and survive.
Something about this site reminds me of the early days of iXiGO.
Do try out PocketSafe and lets us know what you think.
