Hometree x Lyfeguard partnership

01st February 2023

We’ve partnered with fintech brand Lyfeguard – a brilliant virtual life-planning assistant that makes life admin tasks simple and easy to manage, all in one place. 

Taking out boiler and home emergency breakdown cover is one of those tasks that can end up sitting on the ‘to-do’ list for weeks – or even months. But knowing that home emergencies can happen at any moment, it’s super important to get organised and plan for the unexpected – particularly outside of the winter months when boiler breakdowns tend to occur the most. 

That’s why we’ve partnered with Lyfeguard. They take all the hassle out of life planning tasks, enabling its customers to access a range of essential products and services – as well as triggering helpful reminders to get things done. Lyfeguard users can now access Hometree products directly through their platform – and take out home emergency breakdown cover to protect their home in a few simple clicks. 

There are a number of other great benefits with Lyfeguard. Users can organise and plan their tasks with unique insights, visualise their financial data in a super simple way. They can set up handy reminders and access great partner discounts – including a £30 Amazon Gift Card when they purchase Hometree cover

A recent study revealed that a whopping 72 per cent of Homeowners don’t understand home emergency insurance and the essential benefits of taking out cover. Additionally, research shows that boiler cover is cost-effective for just 1 per cent of policy holders, due to disproportionate pricing and unfair price-hikes from some existing service providers in the market. That’s where Hometree makes a difference. We believe home cover providers should be fairer and do more to put the customer needs at the heart of their offering, which is why we don’t hike our prices beyond inflation for anyone who hasn’t claimed. Even then, we cap the increase at just 5% because we recognise inflation is causing huge problems for consumers in the current economic climate. 

Our Head of Commercial operations, Mark McAuley said:

“Lyfeguard shares many of the same values as Hometree, particularly in our mission to reduce the stress of the UK population. While Hometree does this through accessible, affordable and transparent home cover, Lyfeguard does so through centralising, sharing and providing insights into crucial user information. We’re thrilled to have formed this strategic partnership in order to bring crucial services to customers across the UK who already face many difficulties during the cost-of-living crisis, including record-breaking inflation.”

Fraser Stewart, COO of Lyfeguard, said:

“Lyfeguard intends to make every aspect of life planning and management easier, and thus we are delighted to be collaborating with Hometree, who not only provide fair and industry-leading home cover solutions to UK customers, but do so with transparency, honesty and great customer service.”

We’re just as excited as Fraser and Mark about this new partnership. Check them out today.
