This offer is back on again through Severn Trent /Homeserve.
I know Home serve have had problems in the past but I think £6 is worth a gamble.
Their blurb :
If you are a homeowner, you are responsible for the upkeep and repair of the plumbing and drainage system within your home and generally responsible for the repair to the water supply pipe, from your property boundary up to where it enters your home. In some cases this responsibility may be outside the property boundary or shared with neighbouring properties. With such complex systems, if you experienced a problem such as a burst pipe or a blocked drain, it could be expensive to put right. That's why Severn Trent is introducing you to HomeServe to bring you Plumbing & Drainage Plus.
With Plumbing & Drainage Plus, major emergencies such as burst pipes or blocked drains and minor repairs like dripping taps are all taken care of. In a plumbing emergency, there would be no need to search for a plumber, it would take just one call to HomeServe's 24-hour, UK based helpline to arrange assistance from a HomeServe approved plumber. Plus, there would be no repair bill or excess to pay within the claims limit.
This limited offer of £6 for the first year ends on 18th April 2016. Any applications received by HomeServe after this date will be processed at £12 for the first year.
