Supporting Our NHS

Pikl are pleased to announce that we have launched an offer of free insurance cover for hosts who are making their properties available to NHS workers through the NHS Homes scheme, during the COVID-19 virus outbreak.

The NHS Homes scheme has been set up by the UK Short Term Accommodation Association (STAA) to provide free accommodation to key NHS workers, enabling them to stay close to the hospitals where they work. A number of property and hospitality companies that manage properties rented out by their customers have made hundreds of properties available for NHS workers to stay in.

The level of demand has been huge; to date, more than 500 properties have been booked by NHS staff.

Pikl is now offering free 90 day insurance cover to eligible customers who are housing NHS workers free of charge through the NHS Homes scheme.

Pikl CEO and founder, Louise Birritteri, said: “We all want to do our bit to support the phenomenal work that NHS staff are doing. The NHS Homes scheme is a great example of the short-term let industry coming together to offer practical and much needed help, so it was natural for us to say thank you to those homeowners who have pledged their properties to the scheme to offer them free insurance for the period that it’s likely to run. The cover will give homeowners the peace of mind that if any accidental damage, injury or loss occurs in their property, whilst NHS workers are staying, they will not be out of pocket.”

If you are a homeowner that is participating in the NHS Homes scheme and would like to apply for the free cover, you can find out more by clicking on the Pikl link provided on the NHS Homes website
