Cheapest Car Insurance for Florida Drivers Added to Quotes System at Insurer Website

Daytona Beach, FL (PRWEB) August 27, 2014

Florida motor vehicle owners can now use the Auto Pros website in order to find the cheapest car insurance from state companies online. New provider data has been programmed into the system at and the system is open 24/7 for use.

The major markets for insurers in FL currently include Jacksonville, Miami, Tampa and Orlando statewide. Companies that are located in these cities and that serve all in-state residents can be reviewed for price discounts and other details when using the Auto Pros open tools.

“The insurer data that we’re allowing motorists to preview is supplied only by licensed companies and can include broker data,” said an Auto Pros rep.

The state of Florida is now one part of the country where personal insurance protection is required in a standard insurer policy. Drivers who are unable to locate any price drops for policies at the local level in FL can use the PIP insurer finder included in the Auto Pros website system.

“There are companies that do not publicly promote rates that are listed inside of our system to help motorists to review annual or monthly price details for selected plans,” said the rep.

The Auto Pros company programmed its first insurer search tool in 2013 and has since made detailed modifications to its platform. The statewide locator now finds more than insurer discounts for state acceptable coverage plans. Automotive warranty packages from third parties can now be reviewed at


The company supplies a way to review, compare and to purchase packages that agencies offer in the automotive industry for car insurance. The Internet system that is installed for usage from the company website makes research faster for car owners. The company also offers ways to lookup costs for warranty plans that make it simple to find the right coverage for the right price for a new or used automobile.

Cruise Dreams Describes the Top Reasons to Plan Incentive Travel During or After a Merger or Acquisition

Kansas City, MO (PRWEB) July 29, 2014

More companies than ever before are calling Cruise Dreams, a specialty travel agency focusing on incentive and group travel, to use travel incentives to retain and reward customers and/or employees.

Typically, we plan incentive cruises or resort programs 18 months or longer in advance, Kim Gibbons, Founder and president of Cruise Dreams, stated. Lately, companies have been looking for a quick turnaround for an incentive trip, creative suggestions for noteworthy programs and the ability to get the word out quickly areas where we shine. Some incentive travel programs are being planned for less than 6 months from now, which is very unique for incentive travel.

According to an online article from CNN Money in June of this year, 2014 has seen more than $ 786 billion in mergers and the year wasnt even half over. Thats close to the total for the last big spending spree, 2007. Many companies consider an acquisition or merger a better use of money than investing in accounts with low, low interest rates and many will take advantage of those same low rates to borrow to buy.

Smart companies incorporate incentive cruises or incentive land based trips into the mix. The top reasons for added incentive travel, even if its in the near future?

Employee Rewards. Many companies recognize that long hours and intense work often go into planning a merger or acquisition. And thats just before the actual transaction takes place. Rewarding valued employees just makes good financial sense. As does

Employee Retention. Employees on both sides of the merger or acquisition are understandably nervous, for many reasons. Job loss, of course, and down-sizing are concerns, new management with new ways of doing things, are just a few or the trepidations that might prompt mass defections. Group travel or individual travel awards can do a lot to allay those fears.

Customer Retention. Customer retention is a concern also. Often competitors take the opportunity to try to convince clients that the merger or acquisition will be to the clients detriment. Clients may or may not be familiar with the new company or may have had a less than great relationship in the past. A meeting at sea or at a sunny resort can give everyone the chance to reestablish relationships, consolidate existing relationships and put any concerns to rest.

Sales Spike. A customer or employee incentive contest can provide dividends in more ways than one. Contests provide not only a sales spike that may improve a negotiation but also engage the participants and shift the focus to qualifying.

Sales Meetings by land or at sea. For employees and/or customers, an incentive cruise or incentive stay at a 5-star resort is not only a travel reward, its also an opportunity to meet new counterparts and executives, establish and improve current customer relationships and build loyalty in both the employee and client sectors.

Communication for both employees and customers is key during an acquisition or merger and Cruise Dreams is well prepared to provide a higher level of interaction with a group customized website used for trip registration, up to date details about the travel program, easy access to information and changes, links to destination information and more. This is provided at no charge to group travel clients.

The ability to provide proposals for an incentive travel group with a quick turnaround is another Cruise Dreams specialty. Their knowledge of booking trends and availability in the industry is second only to their first-name basis relationship with high level executives throughout both cruise lines and resort operators.

Even more important is the Cruise Dreams Wow factor when a company is trying to retain customers and employees. Every program includes an unusual, once in a lifetime excursion, tour or extra that demonstrates how valued employees and customers are. Some favorites from past trips are a private cocktail party, high above the Thames River, in the London Eye; a Great Race Road Rally in vintage Alpha Romeo cars; a Tuscany countryside tour with a cooking lesson and dinner at a famed restaurant, and more.

Companies planning ahead for a healthy customer and employee transition should consider an incentive travel program with a specialty agency like Cruise Dreams.

Beach lovers and surfers find Wrightsville Beach a sun drenched paradise.

Local real estate developers saw the opportunity to revamp the downtown area by turning old mansions, abandoned warehouses and shops into a series of antique shops and boutiques, pubs and restaurants. Anchoring the north and south side of the downtown area, the economic boost prompted locals to organize a yearly event for families to celebrate the black water river running through, the now, flourishing city. One of the top 20 North Carolina Festivals, Wilmington Riverfest has grown immensely since its humble beginnings in 1979, housing more than 150,000 attendees each year and donating thousands of dollars in scholarships to Cape Fear Community College for marine studies of the Caper Fear River.

Amenities include the 10,000 Square Foot Grand Lanai Clubhouse, resort-style swimming pool, tennis courts, fitness center and the golf course is under construction.

Folks who prefer a more established neighborhood may drawn to Landfall County Club located on the north side of the Cape Fear River on Howe Creek. This gated coastal community offers all the perks of country club living and was named the 2014 Best North Carolina Community of the Year by Real Estate Scorecard. Impressive curb appeal, the close proximity to downtown and Wrightsville Beach and a friendly group of neighbors make this neighborhood a sought after place to live in Wilmington.

These Wilmington NC neighborhoods offer affordable homes to lavish, luxury properties that are available in many styles and sizes.

(PRWEB) July 23, 2014

Rick Otton, a market-beating property investor turned author and educator, has recently revealed the patchy nature of the UK property market, with some areas per square metre prices matching those of new cars, while others struggle.

Every so often there is a statistic or measure published that really makes even experienced property market investors and watchers like myself pause said Mr. Otton.
