We are delighted to announce our partnership with personal lines insurance giants esure and Sheilas’ Wheels. This deal will see esure and Sheilas’ Wheels sell our host insurance top-up product to their consumers involved in the property sharing market.
Louise Birritteri, Pikl Founder & CEO, said: “We’re delighted to be able to announce this prestigious partnership. It is a hugely exciting prospect to be working with such major players in the personal lines insurance market. For esure and Sheilas’ Wheels customers, it will offer extra security to people renting out rooms or properties, where standard home insurance policies do not cover this type of activity in the event of a claim and, in a worst-case scenario, could invalidate their whole policy.”
“There is a link on each brand’s website to take customers to dedicated pages on Pikl’s website that will provide them with a straightforward quote journey for insurance to cover them for renting out a room or their whole property for short periods.”
David McMillan, CEO of esure Group, said: “esure has always had a reputation for disrupting standard industry practice in the name of a better customer experience. We are very pleased to have teamed up with insurtech Pikl to rewrite the way the insurance industry treats people operating in the sharing economy. This collaboration means our customers will be able to get fair-priced, good-quality cover if they declare an intent to rent out a room in their home or their whole property. This is a real game-changer for the industry and a great result for our customers.”
Pikl provides specialist insurance cover for people who want to rent out assets, such as a room in their home, a whole property, or a car parking space. The vast majority of standard home insurance policies will not cover these activities which could make them liable to serious financial losses resulting from theft, fire, damage, or even public liability.
