In Australia, MAPFRE Assistance has established a new partnership with Unitywater, a water company serving more than 300,000 customers, for the provision of insurance related to emergencies related to plumbing and water supply. The deal is a seminal one as the market for home emergency insurance and assistance in Australia is under-developed relative to those in many other developed economies.
Mapfre writer: “The first of these services to be introduced in the Australia market is the Home Emergency Repair Service and the Water Leakage Insurance. For less than $2 per week you can cover yourself from expensive water supply pipe repairs and water leak costs. From as little as $4 per week you can be protected against ten of the most common home emergencies.”
