Box UK (, a specialist designer of bespoke websites, has been commissioned by Lloyds TSB Insurance ( to redesign its travel insurance website for UK customers.

Built around .NET technology, the Lloyds TSB Insurance site structure and quotation engine is being redeveloped to improve usability, in a project led by James Downes, a Box UK Project Manager. James says, 'the new site enables UK consumers to purchase travel insurance quickly and easily online'.

Box UK won the Lloyds TSB Insurance contract in December 2005, and the resulting site went live on 1 February, 2006. Box UK was selected after successfully demonstrating its ‘ability to deliver a feature-rich site in challenging timescales,’ according to Stephan Briggs, eBusiness enterprise manager at Lloyds TSB Insurance.

Benno Wasserstein, managing director of Box UK, comments: ‘Lloyds TSB Insurance wanted to build on its existing presence for travel insurance customers and create a site that would provide advanced functions in a more user friendly environment. The path to purchase has been completely reworked, improving the transactional sales process. James and his team have successfully delivered the project to deadline and to budget.’
