With the recession hitting homeowners hard, Tesco is taking its infamous ‘every little helps’ motto a step further. The supermarket giant is making it even easier for UK householders to protect their property by offering a discount on its insurance packages. The special offer gives new customers the chance to buy home insurance online and save a huge 45%.
As well as aiming to bring in new customers, Tesco hopes the latest scheme will make things easier for those looking to take out a new home insurance package.
Jim Bruce, head of Tesco Home Insurance, explained that the offer could ‘help reduce one of the necessary living costs’.
‘We’re aware of the strain on people’s finances at the moment. Customers can trust us to provide them with the cover to suit their needs, protecting them against unforeseen events.”
The discount is redeemable against three of the policies offered by Tesco Personal Finance; Value, Standard or Finest. However, it is available for a limited time only - those wishing to take advantage of the saving must purchase one of the specified home insurance packages by the 27th May 2009, when the offer closes.
