London, UK (PRWEB UK) 23 November 2012
Affinion International today announced the launch of Home & Motor Assure 24/7, a new and unique suite of home and motor assistance and insurance products. Initially available in partnership with the leading online and catalogue shopping company J D Williams, Home & Motor Assure 24/7 is designed to take away the worry and stress of sorting out everyday problems when things go wrong for homeowners and motorists.
The Home & Motor Assure 24/7 products are designed to make dealing with issues from car repairs to pest control, broken boilers to blocked drains more straightforward, finding reliable providers and helping protect consumers from being over-charged for services. It provides comprehensive cover, not just for traditional problems – such as a burst pipes and leaks – but also for lost or stolen keys and legal expenses and services such as will writing. Everything is done to make it as easy as possible for customers to access and benefit from the service. There is just one number to call, bills are settled directly on the customer’s behalf and, unlike more traditional insurance providers, there is no excess to pay.
The unique element of Home & Motor Assure 24/7 Plus is Roadserve, bringing the benefits and savings enjoyed by large corporate motor fleets to the individual. When a car needs repairing, motorists simply choose an approved garage from a list of more than 15,000 carefully vetted garages and repair centres. The work is monitored to ensure no overcharging takes place and only necessary repairs carried out.
Giles Desforges, Managing Director of Affinion said: “We know that for many homeowners, dealing with an emergency like a broken boiler can be a real headache, with hours spent locating a reliable tradesman and trying to agree a reasonable price. Home & Motor Assure 24/7 removes that hassle, making life simpler for customers. These products offer customers the peace of mind that, with just one call, they will get a reliable service at a fair price.”
Keith Nelson, Group Commercial Controller for JD Williams said: “Buying insurance can be totally overwhelming. Just typing ‘home emergency cover’ into Google brings up 3.4 million results. Home & Motor Assure 24/7 can simplify this process by providing a “one stop shop” for home and motor emergency cover. It offers peace of mind by providing a comprehensive range of benefits to limit the financial risk and practical inconveniences that come in the event of a home emergency or vehicle accident or breakdown.”
