What does Home Emergency Cover include?

If you have Home Emergency Cover included in your Home Insurance, our trained advisors are available 24 hours a day to advise on how to minimise the impact of an emergency.

They will arrange for a qualified tradesperson to come out to you often within two hours, to make emergency repairs to your home if it isn't secure, becomes unsafe, or loses its main source of heating, lighting or water (hot or cold) because of:

Failure or damage to plumbing or drainage system of your home 

Failure of the primary heating system

Failure of the electricity supply 

Your roof no longer being watertight

Damage to or breakage of window frame or panes.

Home Emergency cover also provides cover for the removal of vermin (rats, mice, squirrels, or wasps).


It doesn't cover: 

The normal day-to-day maintenance of the property

Boilers over 15 years old or with an output of 60kW or more

Boilers not serviced in accordance with the manufacturer’s guidelines.

Your options:

Essential Cover: up to £500 of cover
