We are delighted to announce our strategic partnership with Hometree, the home services tech company offering comprehensive boiler and home emergency breakdown cover at affordable prices.
The partnership will enable Lyfeguard users to access Hometree’s services directly through the smart platform’s insurance cover for boilers, central heating, and other home essentials, such as plumbing and electrics. Hometree enables homeowners and landlords alike to enjoy stress-free living with comprehensive and cost-effective heating and home emergency solutions at a time when it is needed most.
A recent study revealed that 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 provider in the market.
Hometree provides transparent and affordable solutions that are accompanied by excellent customer service and a commitment to never unfairly hike prices beyond inflation when a customer hasn’t raised a claim. Even then, they cap the increase at up to 5%, as consumers are feeling the pinch from the current cost-of-living crisis, and Hometree believes it’s not fair for them to take the hit.
Through the partnership, existing and new Lyfeguard customers who are using the smart technology to manage and store essential personal information and documents, will benefit from access to industry-leading home insurance solutions. Lyfeguard customers will also receive a £30 Amazon.co.uk Gift Card when they purchase cover through Hometree.

Mark McAuley, Head of Commercial Operations of Hometree, 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 are, therefore, 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, Chief Commercial Officer 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.”
