Feb 5: New age insurance player Digit Insurance has brought to the market a new Holiday Home Protection policy that covers the contents of the house while you are away. This short duration home protection covers the home contents against burglary, fire and natural disasters. Consumers can avail this cover from the company website directly.
Digit is a new-age general insurance company started by Kamesh Goyal, and backed by Fairfax Group, one of the largest financial services groups in the world.
According to the company, one of the biggest pain points for people when it comes to insurance is non-relevance. This cover is primarily targeted towards customers when they are travelling out of their house and fear for their home.
The policy offers cover for contents inside the house such as appliances, gadgets and jewellery; and damage due to natural disasters and fire . Digit’s home insurance product can be bought for a policy period of as low as 1 day to 180 days.
Vivek Chaturvedi, Head of Marketing, Digit Insurance said, “When we leave home for a vacation, we worry about our home contents especially from the fear of burglary. Which is why we put an extra lock, give the guard extra money, ask our neighbours to keep an extra watch, etc. The idea of this product is that people can secure their home for that period of time only, while they are travelling and are away from their homes. And that too at extremely affordable costs.”
