In September 2017, EK announced its EK Agent service for the United States and Canada, which it says provides insurance agents with all the information needed to get insured on behalf of their clients.
Today, Eks agent website still has a couple of issues.
One is the fact that the agent website doesn’t provide a contact form.
In fact, it does not even provide a user name or email address.
In a blog post, EKS agent said it is working to fix the issues, but only if it can “enable the same seamless interface for our agent platform as the rest of the marketplaces.”
So, if you’re a US resident and don’t want to deal with EK agents, you’re out of luck.
EKS also doesn’t have any in-house agents for the US and Canada.
In the UK, for example, there are over 100 agent websites that specialize in the UK market, but none for the UK.
While EK is working on fixing the agent site, we’ve heard from many who are not satisfied with it, and are looking for other options to cover their UK agent needs.
EK also doesn, however, have a lot of agents in Europe, and they’ve also had to work hard to get their agents up and running in the region.
It is also important to note that EK has a strong presence in the US, so there are probably agents on the UK agent website that are just waiting for their agents to be launched in the country.
