Aviva Canada has launched its Home Protect Bundle product, calling it the first of its kind insurance solution “to help Canadian homeowners prevent claims from reoccurring, repair damages before a claim occurs, and provide unlimited professional assistance.”
Available in Canada beginning this month, the 3-in-1 bundle can be easily added to an existing Aviva home of condominium policy, Aviva Canada said in a press release on Monday.
The Home Protect Bundle (Prevent, Fix, Assist) offers the following:
Claim Prevent: customers receive up to $2,500 to install an approved loss prevention device to prevent reoccurring claims. Examples of devices include: fire and suppression systems, security systems, sump pumps and more;
Home Repair Assure: provides professional services for minor repair needs, before they become major issues, “ideal for customers who value saving time and research”; and
Halo Assist: an added benefit to the bundle, Halo Assist is a “one-stop service” for customers seeking unlimited expert advice by telephone from qualified lawyers, health professionals and housing specialists for legal, health, home repair, real estate and mortgage assistance.
“The Home Protect Bundle is another industry first from Aviva to assist customers in proactively reducing and preventing claims,” said Steve Cohen, executive director of personal lines at Aviva Canada, in the release. “We are committed to creating innovative solutions that are cost effective and add value for consumers.”
