There is much debate about the causes of climate change but there is little debate that the climate is changing, becoming less predictable and more extreme. For five million households and many businesses in the UK, flooding is now a major risk. There are ways of mitigating your exposure to being flooded but when water arrives en masse as a force of nature, there is not much that can stop it from wreaking havoc.
Household and Business insurers are ever more concerned about flood risk and, as a result, people living and working in areas of the country deemed to be at risk, are often saddled with high excesses. For some households, the excess can be as high as £15,000 and for businesses sometimes much higher than this.
Flood Excess Insurance has been developed with the help of the UK’s foremost flood prevention and restoration experts, to offer you the chance to insure your excess. A flood can turn your life or business upside down and the last thing you need is to have to find a large sum of money to cover the flood excess on your policy.
If the worst should happen, and your insurer accepts a claim from you for a flood* then your Flood Excess Insurance will cover the excess amount.
If your claim falls below the level of your policy’s flood excess, we may be able to cover the cost of the claim under this Flood Excess Insurance policy**.
