Given the past 12 months, we think it's fair to say that life is unpredictable. That’s why, when you book your accommodation for university, it’s also important to consider if you have adequate protection for your belongings in the event of accidents or mishaps, especially if you’re planning to bring an expensive laptop, phone or bike.
In line with our mission to make student moves smooth and secure, we’ve partnered with Getsafe to give everyone who books accommodation with Housemates £50 credit* towards Getsafe’s easy and affordable contents insurance policies.
If Housemates is the digital student accommodation platform, by allowing you to book your accommodation securely online without hassle, Getsafe is doing the same thing for insurance with a safe, online process that allows you to secure your belongings in minutes, without any physical paperwork.
Getsafe goes a step further than most insurers, by allowing you to manage your policy where you manage everything else - on your mobile. Better still, you’re able to change or cancel your policy at any time without administration fees - perfect for the ups-and-downs of student life, especially during a pandemic.
As you may know, Housemates has been calling for increased flexibility for students, especially during current events, so we’re thrilled to partner with Getsafe to provide this offer. Plus, with a “great”, 4-star rating on TrustPilot, you’re in good hands.
With Getsafe, you are able to customise your policy to your exact needs. You will need to provide the value of contents in your student home, these will then be covered if they are damaged due to fire, water, storms, burglary and other incidents.
You’re then able to add on extras, such as accidental damage or out-of-home coverage for personal possessions such as a mobile or laptop. It’s important to read your policy documents thoroughly to understand what is and isn’t covered. Your accommodation provider may already have some insurance in place, it’s best to check. You can find out more about Getsafe and what their policies cover on the Getsafe website.
To get the offer, all you have to do is book your student accommodation through Housemates. Once you’ve booked your accommodation, we’ll send you the details to set up your Getsafe policy with £50 credit*. You will need to set up your policy before the Getsafe offer expires on the 31st of May 2021, but you are able to set the policy start date in the future.
To get started, just head to our homepage and search for your city or university.
