British Gas Boiler & Central Heating Cover (via Sky) £2.50 per month plus £5.99 Sky Movie credit

Posted 5th Dec 2018
Just had a e-mail from Sky - so this is probably only of interest to Sky customers but might help some. The offer is 12 months boiler and central heating cover for £2.50 per month (£30 for a year) for boiler and central heating insurance cover + a £5.99 sky movie credit that will arrive 45 days after taking out cover. Policy appears to cover all boiler and central heating and doesn't exclude repairs to older boiler but does have a £99 excess. Details are a bit sketchy as there's no link to detailed terms but does say if boiler can't be repaired they will refund all premiums so little risk. This may be of interest to some - I'll look at it further in a few weeks when my existing cover runs out.

The £99 excess would put me off.
Like the OP alluded to, if you're interested in this then dig deep into what is and is not covered, as people have been stuck with repair bills in the past on these cover plans.
unrelated to this offer but for info British Gas used to do their normal policy but also one with a £50 excess call out charge until fixed which did bring your monthly costs down quite a bit.

Never seen one with £99 but also never seen a monthly fee as low as £2.50, any mention of free service as think they charge roughly £80 to £100 for that

If I remember correctly, BG are not interested in boilers over 10 years old, they’ll try to hard sell a new one

Whilst the £99 pound excess is high its still cheaper than an emergency call out.

BG = Wunch of bankers. Will wiggle out of a warrant repair any way they can; and if forced to do it, will do such a bad job, you end up paying someone else 3x as much to put the botch right.

Had 2 call outs this year. No excess. And they sorted it straight away

The problem is, it is mainly contractors doing their work, and there is very little come-back at them if they do a shoddy job; if you have a good set in your area, be very thankful.

They managed to pipe my mums house up back to front; then did a bodge repair they hid under the carpet; never even refitted the floorboards correctly.

Sister stupidly gave them a maintenance contract at our old nursery; first time something went wrong they tried to claim we needed a new boiler; called in a local guy for a 2nd opinion, and he fixed it for £5 (plus his fee).

After that we switched to him.

Both times I had BG engineers. Maybe I was lucky
