You might be surprised just why and how Daylight Saving Time started…
A few years ago, we launched the first InsureandGo mobile app (actually, we did have another one before but that was a loong time ago). Since then, it’s been downloaded thousands of times and was even nominated for a MOMA Award in 2015!
