With Tesco Bank Home Insurance, is my boiler covered?

If you have our Tesco Finest policy, this includes cover for boiler breakdowns. For all other types of Tesco Bank policies, this can be added as an optional extra, called home emergency cover. You can add this to your policy via Your Insurance Account, which is available 24 hours a day.

Should you suffer a breakdown or failure of the central heating boiler within your home, then:

  • we will organise an Engineer to come to your home
  • we will pay for the call-out, labour, parts, materials and VAT involved in repairing or remedying the breakdown and/or failure of the boiler
  • if a new part is required, we will endeavour to source it in the quickest time possible
  • if your boiler is beyond economic repair then we will pay an amount towards its replacement.

Damage caused by escape of water from your boiler or any water installation is covered under the home insurance policy itself.
For details of limits and exclusions please see your Policy Booklet. Home Emergency cover is underwritten by Interpartner Assistance SA
You can add home emergency via Your Insurance Account, which is available 24 hours a day.
