Cheap for the first year but if you dont be careful it almost doubles the second year!! I cancelled it after first year as didnt use it

Homeserve are horrendous. I would avoid at all costs. We were told our sewer was collapsing when the seal on the loo had gone. Someone had their boiler condemned when it was fully repairable.

This is a good price.
I bought a Homeserve policy a couple of years ago. They were awful to deal with. I have steered well clear.
My thoughts are buy the policy but be ready for awful service

I think the service must vary depending on where you live. I have the plumbing/drainage service with them and have had no problems with the level of service. They are doing a two man job soon to replace a pipe under the garden and I pay £9 a month with no excess.

Obviously everyone cancels in the 2nd year like most things.

I've heard that too, but reviews say it depends on where you are. I've got British Gas for one place and just got this HomeServe deal on the other.

I had a policy with BG a couple of years ago with a £50 excess for repairs. During the annual service a washer needed replacing, a two minute job but i was told there would be a £50 call out charge. My response "what call out? you're already here. You can go bollocks!".

£50 excess so cold for me.

£50 excess makes it more costly than my local trusted boiler repairman. My experiences with Homeserve mean it is best avoided.

Good offer as usual for 1st year. Best option is to switch between Homeserve and BG from year to year. That way you bag the introductory discounts as a new customer and grab additional cash back from tcb or Quidco. Been doing this for a while and rarely pay much more than £100 for a full years cover including boiler,central heating,plumbing and electrics. I find the quality of service.similar for both and,on the whole, pretty good.

What's the alternative? Or are some people just having a billy downer in general?

Have been using homeserve for 4 years now. Never had a problem always came out next day fixed the issue even tho they were only minor fixes. No excess tho on the £1 pm deal. Only plumbing covered on mine

Decent local company and keep your fingers crossed? Seriously, these policies are like extended warranties at Curry's, etc. - the insurance company has to make a profit so, over time, you're far better off funding repairs yourself and saving their profit. Yes, you could get a big bill (though think what's the worst it could be) but unless you're VERY unlikely you'll be quids in on average.

£35 quidco 😊
