HomeServe joins with Aviva on exclusive UK Home Assistance partnership

Aviva today announced its UK general insurance business has signed a five year agreement with HomeServe, which will see the UK’s leading insurer underwrite home assistance products for HomeServe’s 2million UK customers.

This new partnership brings together the rich heritage of home assistance and protection experience and capabilities of both companies. HomeServe has been providing home assistance for over 20 years and is the second largest provider in the UK. It recently announced the acquisition of major gas service and repair business, Home Energy Services, creating a combined network of 600 directly-employed specialist engineers. Aviva is the leading general insurer in the UK and insures 1 in 10 households.

Maurice Tulloch, chief executive officer, UK general insurance and chairman, Aviva global general insurance said:“I’m delighted Aviva has secured a new long term partnership with HomeServe - especially as this comes just a few months after we announced a new seven year relationship as exclusive provider of general insurance products to TSB customers.

“A broken boiler or a home damaged by water as a result of leaking pipes is a traumatic event for any household. Insurance is designed to protect what matters when things go wrong – and acting quickly to minimise the impact is crucial. Aviva’s insurance expertise coupled with HomeServe’s focus on providing effortless service through its network of committed and experienced engineers is a partnership designed to fulfil commitments made to our customers.

“I look forward to working with Martin Bennett and all his colleagues on exciting new projects in the future. HomeServe has made huge strides forward in recent years under his leadership and we share similar values; focused on doing the right things, in the right way, for our customers."

Martin Bennett, CEO of HomeServe UK, added: “HomeServe is on an exciting journey – our recent acquisition of Home Homeserve LogoEnergy Services has enabled us to become a significant force in the heating market and now, our partnership with Aviva is a huge step forward and opportunity for significant growth.

“We are both organisations focused on making things easy for our Customers and providing them with products and services that work when they need them.

“I am particularly excited about what we will offer Customers in terms of connected home innovation – features and services we expect to be market leading in our sector and we believe will really make Customers’ lives easier.”
