British Gas launches new home insurance proposition in partnership with AXA

This exclusive partnership provides homeowners with cover for buildings insurance, contents insurance or a combination of the two. The product complements the range of Homecare services that British Gas also offers, including boiler care and repair, plumbing and drainage cover and home electrical cover. The new products will include enhanced service features such as a personal claims handler being appointed to manage the more complex claims, as well as providing a simple, easy to understand policy that delivers good value for money.

Chris Stern, Managing Director - British Gas Insurance added: “Feedback from our customers suggests that home insurance is a natural extension of the products and services they already receive from British Gas. This coupled with AXA’s breadth and depth of experience, their commitment to the affinity sector and their market-leading IT platform made them the clear choice as our underwriting and administration partner. By working closely together we hope to ensure that this new service offering from British Gas is a great success.”

Kirsty Walker, Managing Director – Partnerships, AXA Direct & Partnerships said: “We are very pleased that British Gas chose AXA as its partner to offer home insurance for the first time as a natural extension of their ‘looking after your world’ philosophy. Customers will be able to tailor their home insurance policies through a quick and convenient online account. Adding a key player like British Gas also means our partnership footprint continues to expand and underlines the importance of this channel to our business.”
