Sharing economy insurance specialist Pikl is offering free cover for hosts making their properties available to NHS workers during the COVID-19 pandemic.


The NHS Homes scheme, set up by the UK Short Term Accommodation Association (STAA), aims to provide free housing to key NHS workers close to their hospitals.

Pikl is now offering free 90-day top-up cover specifically for short-term letting to eligible customers housing NHS workers free of charge.

The offer is limited to the first 500 accepted properties, which is the premium equivalent of £25,000.

Louise Birritteri, CEO and founder of Pikl, said: “We all want to do our bit to support the phenomenal work that NHS staff are doing.

“The NHS Homes scheme is a great example of the short-term let industry coming together to offer practical and much needed help, so it was natural for us to say thank you to those homeowners who have pledged their properties to the scheme to offer them free insurance for the period that it’s likely to run.

“The cover will give homeowners the peace of mind that if any accidental damage, injury or loss occurs in their property, whilst NHS workers are staying, they will not be out of pocket.”
